Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Lytham

Is there a reason to use a Lytham conveyancing company given that online alternatives are less overpriced?

By all means make sure that you contrast conveyancing costs in Lytham and you should seek an affordable estimate but don’t become consumed with hunting for the cheapest Lytham conveyancer.

We have rather brash vendors who has suggested a lock out contract with a non-refundable deposit 6,000. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?

There are a couple of primary drawbacks with executing a lock out agreement (also referred to as an exclusivity agreement) is that it diverts attention away from moving forward with the conveyancing work, so unless it requires limited or no negotiation then it may transpire to be unhelpful. It is not strongly advocated amongst Lytham conveyancing practitioners for this reason. The other main issue is the extent of the remedies available - a jilted purchaser is very unlikely to win an injunction to prohibit the owner selling to another buyer, so the only remedy available under the agreement will be the recovery of abortive costs and, in rare circumstances, the additional payment of damages.

How does conveyancing in Lytham differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Lytham contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Lytham typically buy 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Lytham or who has acted in the same development.

I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Lytham I like with a park and railway links nearby, however it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Lytham in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?

If you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will be an issue. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you may 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 speak to your conveyancing solicitor about this.
