How does conveyancing in Nailsworth differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Nailsworth approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because house builders in Nailsworth tend to purchase 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 used to new build conveyancing in Nailsworth or who has acted in the same development.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my garden apartment in Nailsworth. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have just had a half-yearly service charge invoice – what should I do?
It best that you pay the maintenance contribution as usual as all rents and service charges should be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies 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. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.

There are a number of properties in Nailsworth on private lanes. I am acquiring one such house. Are there any benefits to buying a house on a privately owned road?
Nailsworth conveyancing firms are used to dealing homeson private. Your property lawyer should review the title to find any rights or responsibilities. It is possible that there is a management company (wholly owned by residents) that owners make annual contributions to maintain the road. Where one exists, the road should be maintained and look nicer than publicly adopted.
