How does conveyancing in Maryland differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Maryland come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because developers in Maryland 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 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 Maryland or who has acted in the same development.

I am on look out for some leasehold conveyancing in Maryland. Before I set the wheels in motion I want to be sure as to the unexpired term of the lease.
If the lease is registered - and most are in Maryland - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
