How does conveyancing in Netherley differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Netherley approach us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because builders in Netherley typically acquire 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 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Netherley or who has acted in the same development.
I am looking for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and found one close by in Netherley I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it only has 52 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Netherley suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account.

You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
