You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Desford and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational experience.

How does conveyancing in Desford differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Desford contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Desford usually acquire the site, 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 Desford or who has acted in the same development.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one close by in Desford I like with open areas and railway links in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Desford in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a mortgage that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

I need to appoint a conveyancing solicitor for purchase conveyancing in Desford. I've land on a web site which appears to be the ideal answer If there is a chance to get all the legals completed via email that would be preferable. Should I be concerned? What should out be looking out for?

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
