Most buyers of new build property in Tarporley contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built.

It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Tarporley or who has acted in the same development.

If you meet the appropriate requirements, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be extended by the Court. However, you will be required to demonstrate that you have done all that could be expected to track down the landlord. For most situations an enquiry agent should be helpful to try and locate and prepare an expert document which can be accepted by the court as evidence that the landlord can not be located.
