How does conveyancing in Newbridge differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Newbridge contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because house builders in Newbridge usually purchase 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 Newbridge or who has acted in the same development.

I work for a long established estate agency in Newbridge where we have experienced a few flat sales put at risk due to leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have been given inconsistent advice from local Newbridge conveyancing firms. Can you confirm whether the owner of a flat can initiate the lease extension formalities for the buyer?

As long as the seller has been the owner for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to commence the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. The benefit of this is that the proposed purchaser need not have to wait 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment has to be done prior to, or simultaneously with completion of the sale.

Alternatively, it may be possible to extend the lease informally by agreement with the landlord either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the buyer.

Developers have put forward a conveyancer and I've obtained an estimate from them. It's nearly £400 cheaper than my own Newbridge lawyer. What's the catch?

Housebuilders often have panels of conveyancing practitioners who expedite matters and who know the builder's contract and conveyancer. As many developers offer an incentive to select a preferred conveyancing practitioner for this reason, any increased charges can be avoided and a builder will not suggest a conveyancing warehouse and run the risk of having the conveyancing delayed when they demand an exchange within a tight deadline. The argument for not opting for the recommended conveyancing practitioner is that they may prove hesitant to fight for your interests at the risk of upsetting the developer. Where you have concerns that this may be the situation you should stick with your local Newbridge solicitor.
