How does conveyancing in Easton differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Easton contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because developers in Easton usually acquire the land, 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 conveyancers 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 Easton or who has acted in the same development.

Do you have any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Easton with the intention of expediting the sale process?

  • A significant proportion of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Easton can be bypassed where you instruct lawyers as soon as your agents start marketing the property and request that they start to collate the leasehold documentation needed by the purchasers’ lawyers.
  • If you hold a share in a the freehold, you should ensure that you have the original share certificate. Organising a re-issued share certificate can be a time consuming formality and slows down many a Easton home move. Where a new share certificate is necessary, do contact the company officers or managing agents (if applicable) for this as soon as possible. If there is a history of conflict with your landlord or managing agents it is essential that these are settled before the property is put on the market. The buyers and their solicitors will be warry about purchasing a flat where there is a current dispute. You may have to bite the bullet and discharge any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to the buyers completing the purchase. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled prior to the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You will still have to reveal particulars of the dispute to the purchasers, but it is better to present the dispute as over as opposed to ongoing. The majority of freeholders or managing agents in Easton levy fees for providing management packs for a leasehold home. You or your lawyers should enquire as to the actual amount of the charges. The management pack can be applied for on or before finding a buyer, thus accelerating the process. The average time it takes to obtain the necessary information is three weeks. It is the most usual reason for delay in leasehold conveyancing in Easton. In the event that you altered the property did you need the Landlord’s permission? Have you, for example laid down wooden flooring? Easton leases often stipulate that internal structural changes or laying down wooden flooring require a licence from the Landlord acquiescing to such alterations. If you dont have the paperwork to hand do not communicate with the landlord without checking with your lawyer before hand.

I am the registered owner of a 2 bed flat in Easton, conveyancing having been completed October 1998. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Similar flats in Easton with a long lease are worth £201,000. The ground rent is £45 invoiced annually. The lease ends on 21st October 2085

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive due diligence.
