How does conveyancing in Slough differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Slough contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because house builders in Slough usually acquire the real estate, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Slough or who has acted in the same development.

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Slough I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Slough in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a home loan that many years may be problematic. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

I am one month into a freehold purchase having been directed to conveyancers by the estate agent to perform conveyancing in Slough. We are not happy. Could you help me find new conveyancers?
