How does conveyancing in Osterley Park differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Osterley Park come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Osterley Park tend to purchase 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 Osterley Park or who has acted in the same development.

I decided to have a survey completed on a house in Osterley Park in advance of appointing lawyers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold element to the property. The surveyor has said that some banks may not issue a loan on a flying freehold house.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Osterley Park. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

I am assuming that there are issues buying a leasehold house in Osterley Park. Conveyancing solicitors have not yet been appointed. Will my lawyers set out the risks of buying a leasehold house in Osterley Park ?

You may also be required to pay a service charge towards the maintenance of the communal areas where the property is located on an estate. Your conveyancer will advise you fully on all the issues.
