How does conveyancing in Cross Keys differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Cross Keys approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is completed. This is because house builders in Cross Keys tend to buy 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 used to new build conveyancing in Cross Keys or who has acted in the same development.

I have been on the look out for a flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Cross Keys I like with amenity areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Cross Keys for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.

  • Some Cross Keys leases require Licence to Assign from the landlord. If this applies to your lease, it would be prudent to place the estate agents on notice to make sure that the purchasers obtain bank and professional references.

You will therefore need to provide your estate agents with the service charge figures so that they can pass this information on to the purchasers or their solicitors. You may think that you are aware of the number of years left on your lease but you should double-check by asking your lawyers. A purchaser's conveyancer will be unlikely to recommend their client to to exchange contracts if the remaining number of years is below 75 years. In the circumstances it is essential at an early stage that you consider whether the lease term for your property needs extending.
