How does conveyancing in Fallowfield differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Fallowfield approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because house builders in Fallowfield tend to 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 Fallowfield or who has acted in the same development.

I today plan to offer on a house that appears to meet my requirements, at a reasonable figure which is making it more attractive.

Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been appointed. Will my lawyers set out the risks of buying a leasehold house in Fallowfield ?

Corresponding properties in Fallowfield with a long lease are worth £201,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £45 invoiced every year. The lease ceases on 21st October 2086

With just 64 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to span between £15,200 and £17,600 plus costs.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There may be additional issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you move forward based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
