How does conveyancing in Elm Park differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Elm Park contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because new home sellers in Elm Park tend to buy 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Elm Park or who has acted in the same development.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Elm Park I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Elm Park for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?

Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term may be problematic. Reduce the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you can request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

Is it simple use your search tool to get a costs illustration from a conveyancing practitioner in Elm Park on the approved list for my lender?

First choose a mortgage company such as National Westminster Bank, Coventry Building Society or TSB then type in your location for instance Elm Park. Conveyancing organisations in Elm Park and beyond will then be shown.
