How does conveyancing in Stokenchurch differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Stokenchurch contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Stokenchurch tend to 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. 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Stokenchurch or who has acted in the same development.

I can't really find anything else in Stokenchurch for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be an issue. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.
