How does conveyancing in Hackney differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Hackney contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because builders in Hackney usually purchase 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 Hackney or who has acted in the same development.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one near me in Hackney I like with a park and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Hackney suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be problematic. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you could ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.

I am selling my house. My former solicitors has retired. It would be helpful to have a recommendation of a conveyancing firm. Im based in Hackney if that makes things easier.
