Most buyers of new build premises in North Wembley come to us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is completed. This is because house builders in North Wembley typically buy 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in North Wembley or who has acted in the same development.

I own a leasehold flat in North Wembley. Conveyancing was finished in five years ago. I have been told that I should not let the the remaining lease term to get too low. Why is that a problem?
North Wembley leasehold properties are for a prescribed term - normally just under one hundred years when they started. However a significant flats in North Wembley were built or converted in the 70’s80’s and so such leases now have fewer than 80 years unexpired. This may sound like plenty of time but Banks, Building Societies and other mortgage companies tend to need leases to have a minimum of 75 years unexpired to adequate security. This means that when you come to sell the property you will need a lease extension if you are getting close to 75 years. To enhance the saleability of your property you should be considering whether or not to extend your lease long before you come to sell it. Furthermore strong financial reasons to doing so before the lease reaches even eighty years as when the lease falls below 80 years the amount to be paid to extend starts to increase.
