Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Shotton contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Shotton usually acquire 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.

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.

I have subsequently discovered that it's a leasehold as opposed to freehold. I would have thought that there are particular concerns buying a house with a leasehold title in Shotton. Conveyancing solicitors have are soon to be appointed. Will they explain the issues?

Most houses in Shotton are freehold and not leasehold. This is one of the situations where having a local conveyancer who is familiar with the area who can assist with the conveyancing process. We note that you are purchasing in Shotton in which case you should be looking for a Shotton conveyancing practitioner and check that they have experience in dealing with leasehold houses.

Corresponding flats in Shotton with a long lease are worth £202,000. The ground rent is £60 invoiced every year. The lease runs out on 21st October 2079

With just 57 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £28,500 and £33,000 plus legals.

The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to supply the actual costs in the absence of comprehensive investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information before getting professional advice.
