How does conveyancing in Eden Park differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Eden Park approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because house builders in Eden Park usually 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 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 used to new build conveyancing in Eden Park or who has acted in the same development.
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Eden Park I like with a park and railway links in the vicinity, however it only has 51 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Eden Park suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
Should you require a mortgage that many years may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.
