How does conveyancing in Hoxton differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Hoxton come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because house builders in Hoxton tend to buy the real estate, 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 Hoxton or who has acted in the same development.

I today plan to offer on a house that appears to meet my requirements, at a great figure which is making it all the more appealing. I have just found out that the title is leasehold as opposed to freehold. I would have thought that there are issues buying a house with a leasehold title in Hoxton. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been appointed. Will they explain the issues?

The majority of houses in Hoxton are freehold and not leasehold. In this scenario it’s worth having a local conveyancer who is familiar with the area who can assist with the conveyancing process.
