How does conveyancing in Markyate differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Markyate approach us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because house builders in Markyate typically acquire 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 Markyate or who has acted in the same development.

I am looking at a couple of maisonettes in Markyate both have about forty five years remaining on the leases. Should I regard a short lease as a deal breaker?
There are plenty of short leases in Markyate. The lease is a legal document that entitles you to use the premises for a period of time. As the lease gets shorter the value of the lease deteriorates and it becomes more costly to acquire a lease extension. For this reason it is generally wise to extend the lease term. It is often difficulties arise selling premises with a short lease because mortgage lenders may be unwilling to lend money on properties of this type. Lease enfranchisement can be a difficult process. We advise that you get professional assistance from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this field.
