Nottingham must be informed of your intention prior to renting your property as this is likely to be a breach of Nottingham’s mortgage conditions. In many cases banks or building societies will permit you to let out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk.

How does conveyancing in Mousehole differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Mousehole approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because builders in Mousehole 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 property lawyers 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 Mousehole or who has acted in the same development.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £245,000 and found one near me in Mousehole I like with open areas and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Mousehole in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
