How does conveyancing in Tower Hill differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Tower Hill contact us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because developers in Tower Hill usually buy 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 Tower Hill or who has acted in the same development.
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £235,500 and found one round the corner in Tower Hill I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Tower Hill for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Discount the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of 2 years you could ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
