Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Golders Green

I am buying a newly constructed flat in Golders Green and my conveyancer is informing me that she is duty bound to the lender to reveal incentives from the developer. I am on a tight deadline to sign contracts and I would rather not delay deal. Is my lawyer right?

You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your property lawyer. A precondition to being on a bank panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook specifications. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

Why is leasehold purchase conveyancing in Golders Green costs more?

In short, leasehold conveyancing in Golders Green and elsewhere usually necessitates extra due diligence compared to freehold conveyancing. This includes analysing the lease terms, liaising with the landlord about serving required notices, procuring up-to-date service charge and management information, procuring the freeholder’s consents and reviewing management accounts. The obligations on both the landlord and the tenant in the lease need to be studied by the buyer’s conveyancing team and read from beginning to end – no matter how many different leaseholders have owned the lease since it was first entered into.

How does conveyancing in Golders Green differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Golders Green come to 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 Golders Green typically 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 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Golders Green or who has acted in the same development.

This will mean that your lease can be lengthened by the magistrate. You will be obliged to prove that you or your lawyers have used your best endeavours to find the lessor. For most situations a specialist would be useful to carry out a search and to produce a report which can be used as proof that the freeholder can not be located.
