How does conveyancing in Stockbridge differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Stockbridge contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because new home sellers in Stockbridge usually acquire 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 Stockbridge or who has acted in the same development.

What does commercial conveyancing in Stockbridge cover?

Non domestic conveyancing in Stockbridge incorporates a broad range of guidance, provided by regulated solicitors, relating to business property.

Commercial conveyancing solicitors can also offer advice on the sale of business assets, commercial mortgages and the termination of leases.

We're FTB’s - had an offer accepted, yet the estate agent informed us that the seller will only issue a contract if we use the agent's preferred conveyancers as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local solicitor who is accustomed to conveyancing in Stockbridge

It is highly unlikely the owners are behind this. If they desire ‘a quick sale', turning down a motivated buyer is not the way to achieve this. Speak to the owners direct and make sure they understand (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you will continue to appoint your own,trusted Stockbridge conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will provide their negotiator at the agency a kickback or achieve conveyancing figures pre-set by HQ.

Last June I purchased a leasehold property in Stockbridge. Do I have any liability for service charges for periods before my ownership?

Where the service charge has already been demanded from the previous owner and they have not paid you would not usually be personally liable for the arrears. Strange as it may seem, your landlord may still be able to take action to forfeit the lease. A critical element of leasehold conveyancing for your conveyancer to ensure to have an up to date clear service charge receipt before completion of your purchase. If you have a mortgage this is likely to be a requirement of your lender.

If you purchase part way through an accounting year you may be liable for charges not yet demanded even if they relate to a period prior to your purchase. In such circumstances your conveyancer would normally arrange for the seller to set aside some money to cover their part of the period (usually called a service charge retention).

I acquired a basement flat in Stockbridge, conveyancing was carried out 3 years ago. How much will my lease extension cost? Comparable properties in Stockbridge with a long lease are worth £216,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £50 invoiced every year. The lease ceases on 21st October 2089

With only 69 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to span between £9,500 and £11,000 as well as professional fees.

The suggested premium range that we have given is 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 may be additional concerns that need to be taken into account and clearly you should be as accurate as possible in your negotiations.
