How does conveyancing in Melton Mowbray differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Melton Mowbray contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Melton Mowbray usually purchase 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 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 used to new build conveyancing in Melton Mowbray or who has acted in the same development.

Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Melton Mowbray ahead of instructing lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the house. My surveyor has said that some banks tend refuse to issue a mortgage on such a property.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my 2 bed apartment in Melton Mowbray. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, but I have recently had a quarterly service charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?

It best that you clear the maintenance contribution as you normally would because all rents and service charges will be allotted on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents 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. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

Generally speaking the cost for major works tend not to be included within maintenance charges, although there some managing agents in Melton Mowbray obliged tenants to contribute towards a reserve fund and this is used to offset against major works.
