How does conveyancing in Nelson differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Nelson contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Nelson tend to 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 Nelson or who has acted in the same development.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one close by in Nelson I like with amenity areas and transport links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Nelson for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a short lease?

If you need a home loan that many years will be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.

Given that I am about to spend £400,000 on a two bedroom apartment in Nelson I would like to have a conversation with the conveyancer concerning thetransaction prior to instructing the firm. Can this be arranged?

In the event that it has you need to make them aware of the replacement lawyer and ensure the loan are issued to the new lawyers.
