Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Perranporth

The owners have rather assertive vendors who has insisted on a exclusivity contract with a non-refundable deposit 6,000. Is it wise to enter into such agreements?

This type of preliminary agreement isn't frequently used in Perranporth, conveyancers are not keen on them as they divert attention from the primary focus, namely conveyancing and if you end up losing your deposit then the solicitor at best left with an upset client and at worst a litigious one. Furthermore, there is no guarantee that just because the seller has entered into a lock out contract they will complete the sale with you. They may be in contravention of the agreement if they receive a large enough offer to do so because an aggrieved party with the benefit of a lockoutcontract will still be legally obliged to show losses as a consequence of the breach and these may not amount to the extra amount that your seller may obtain by breaching the contract, no matter how morally condemnable that may be.

How does conveyancing in Perranporth differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Perranporth come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Perranporth tend to buy 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 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 Perranporth or who has acted in the same development.

I am a negotiator for a busy estate agent office in Perranporth where we have experienced a number of flat sales put at risk as a result of short leases. I have been given contradictory information from local Perranporth conveyancing firms. Please can you confirm whether the vendor of a flat can commence the lease extension process 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 kick-start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the buyer need not have to sit tight for 2 years for a lease extension. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed before, or at the same time as completion of the disposal of the property.

An alternative approach is to agree the lease extension with the freeholder 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 purchaser.
