I am about to put an offer on a leasehold property in Ince in Makerfield. The selling agents tell me that it is the norm for flats in Ince in Makerfield to have less than 75 years left on the lease. I am getting a mortgage with Platform. Is this going to be a problem if the lease has Seventy One years to go.

Platform have specific requirements as set out in the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook in relation to minimum unexpired lease terms. As of 5/8/2022 the requirements read as follows :
Forgive me if this question is silly but I am wet behind the ears as FTB of a two bedroom flat in Ince in Makerfield. Do I pick up the keys to the house on the completion date from my solicitor? If this is the case, I will appoint a High Street conveyancing solicitor in Ince in Makerfield?
On the day of completion you will not be required to go to the conveyancers office in Ince in Makerfield.

A colleague informed me that in purchasing a property in Ince in Makerfield there may be a number of restrictions preventing external changes to the property. Is this right?

I happen to be the single recipient of my late grandmother’s will with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Ince in Makerfield. The Ince in Makerfield property was put into my name in July. I now wish to sell up. I understand that there is a CML 6 month 'rule', meaning my property ownership will be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the house in July. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The CML handbook obliges conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." By the strict wording you could be impacted by that. many mortgage companies would take a practical view as this clause is principally there to pick up on the purchase and immediately sell or the quick reselling of properties.
How does conveyancing in Ince in Makerfield differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Ince in Makerfield approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because builders in Ince in Makerfield 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 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 Ince in Makerfield or who has acted in the same development.
We're first time buyers - had an offer accepted, but the estate agent informed us that the owners will only issue a contract if we instruct the agent's chosen conveyancers as they want an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a family solicitor used to conveyancing in Ince in Makerfield
It is unlikely the owners are driving this. Should the vendor want ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious purchaser is not the way to achieve this. Avoid the agents and go straight to the sellers and explain that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you will continue to use your preferred Ince in Makerfield conveyancing lawyers - rather thanthe ones that will provide their negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or achieve conveyancing targets set by corporate headquarters.

What is the difference between surveying and conveyancing in Ince in Makerfield?
Conveyancing - in Ince in Makerfield or anywhere in England and Wales - is the process of legally transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It involves the checking of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you’re intending to buy and will help you discover the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you a powerful reason for negotiating the purchase price down or asking the seller to fix the problems before you complete your move.
