How does conveyancing in Gunnislake differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Gunnislake contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because new home sellers in Gunnislake usually purchase the site, 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 Gunnislake or who has acted in the same development.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one near me in Gunnislake I like with a park and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Gunnislake in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a lease with such few years left?

If you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.
