How does conveyancing in Nelson differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Nelson contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because developers in Nelson typically 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 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 Nelson or who has acted in the same development.

I own a 1 bedroom flat in Nelson, conveyancing formalities finalised February 2008. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Equivalent flats in Nelson with an extended lease are worth £176,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 charged once a year. The lease ends on 21st October 2100

You have 80 years left to run we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £8,600 and £9,800 as well as plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There may be additional issues that need to be taken into account and you obviously should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action based on this information without first getting professional advice.
