How does conveyancing in Queensbury differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Queensbury contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because builders in Queensbury usually purchase 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 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 Queensbury or who has acted in the same development.

Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Queensbury prior to retaining conveyancers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property.

It varies from the lender to lender. Bank of Scotland has different requirements from Halifax. Should you wish to call us we can check via the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Queensbury. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Queensbury to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.

Our conveyancer has advised that he intends to complete and exchange simultaneously on the sale of our £150,000 garden flat in Queensbury in just under a week. The freeholder has quoted £312 for Landlord’s certificate, building insurance schedule and 3 years statements of service charge. Is the landlord entitled to charge an administration fee for a flat conveyance in Queensbury?

Queensbury conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes more often than not involves the buyer’s lawyer submitting enquiries for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is under no legal obligation to answer these enquiries most will be willing to do so. They are entitled to charge a reasonable charge for answering questions or supplying documentation. There is no upper cap for such fees. The average fee for the paperwork that you are referring to is £350, in some cases it exceeds £800. The management information fee levied by the landlord must be accompanied by a summary of rights and obligations in relation to administration fees, otherwise the charge is technically not due. Reality however dictates that you have no choice but to pay whatever is requested of you should you wish to exchange contracts with the buyer.

After months of dialogue we simply can't agree with our landlord on how much the lease extension should cost for our flat in Queensbury. Can we issue an application to the Residential Property Tribunal Service?

in cases where there is a absentee freeholder or if there is disagreement about what the lease extension should cost, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can apply to the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal to calculate the sum to be paid.

An example of a Lease Extension case for a Queensbury flat is 20 Orchard Court Stonegrove in June 2009. The tribunal decided that a premium of £11,040 should be payable for the new lease This case was in relation to 1 flat. The number of years remaining on the existing lease(s) was 71.55 years.
