How does conveyancing in Kingsland differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Kingsland approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Kingsland usually acquire 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Kingsland or who has acted in the same development.
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one close by in Kingsland I like with a park and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 52 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Kingsland suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be a potential deal breaker. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my ground floor flat in Kingsland. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, but I have just had a yearly maintenance charge demand – Do I pay up?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should clear the invoice as usual as all rents and service invoices will be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
