How does conveyancing in Thornhill differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Thornhill approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because builders in Thornhill 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. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers 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 Thornhill or who has acted in the same development.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my garden flat in Thornhill. Conveyancing has not commenced, but I have just had a quarterly service charge demand – what should I do?

The sensible thing to do is pay the maintenance contribution as usual as all ground rent and service payments should be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.

I purchased a 1 bedroom flat in Thornhill, conveyancing was carried out in 1999. Can you please calculate a probable premium for a statutory lease extension? Equivalent flats in Thornhill with over 90 years remaining are worth £192,000. The ground rent is £55 levied per year. The lease ceases on 21st October 2076

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we are not able to advice on a more accurate figure in the absence of detailed due diligence. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other issues that need to be considered 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 seeking the advice of a professional.
