How does conveyancing in Creekmouth differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Creekmouth approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because house builders in Creekmouth tend to purchase the real estate, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties. Buyers, therefore, will have to exchange contracts without actually seeing the house they are buying. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly. Due to the fact that it could be several months and even years between exchange of contracts and completion, the mortgage offer may need to be extended. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Creekmouth or who has acted in the same development.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my ground floor flat in Creekmouth. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, however I have recently had a half-yearly maintenance charge demand – what should I do?

The sensible thing to do is pay the service charge as usual as all rents and service payments should be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

After years of negotiations we cannot agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Creekmouth. Does the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal have jurisdiction to calculate the appropriate figures?

if there is a absentee landlord or if there is disagreement about the premium for a lease extension, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the LVT to make a decision on the premium.

An example of a Lease Extension matter before the tribunal for a Creekmouth property is 46 Credon Road in January 2014. On 11 September 2013 Deputy District Judge Price sitting at the Bow County Court made a vesting order that the freeholder surrender his lease and be granted a new lease of the Premises on such terms as may be determined by the First Tier Tribunal (Property Chamber).The appropriate sum as concluded by the Tribunal was £7225 This case related to 1 flat. The unexpired lease term was 69.77 years.
