How does conveyancing in Welling differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Welling approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because new home sellers in Welling tend to acquire the real estate, 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 Welling or who has acted in the same development.

Can you provide any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in Welling from the perspective of speeding up the sale process?
- Much of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Welling can be avoided where you get in touch lawyers the minute you market your property and ask them to put together the leasehold information which will be required by the buyers’ conveyancers. If there is a history of conflict with your landlord or managing agents it is essential that these are settled before the property is marketed. The purchasers and their solicitors will be nervous about purchasing a flat where there is an ongoing dispute. You will have to accept that you will have to pay any arrears of service charge or resolve the dispute prior to completion of the sale. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled ahead of the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You will still have to reveal particulars of the dispute to the buyers, but it is clearly preferable to reveal the dispute as over rather than unresolved. The majority of landlords or Management Companies in Welling levy fees for providing management packs for a leasehold home. You or your lawyers should discover the actual amount of the charges. The management information can be applied for as soon as you have a buyer, thus reducing delays. The typical amount of time it takes to obtain the necessary information is three weeks. It is the most usual reason for frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Welling. You may think that you are aware of the number of years remaining on your lease but you should verify this via your solicitors. A purchaser's conveyancer will be unlikely to recommend their client to to exchange contracts if the remaining number of years is below 75 years. It is therefore important at an early stage that you identify whether the lease for your property needs extending. If it does, contact your solicitors before you put your property on the market for sale. If you hold a share in a the freehold, you should ensure that you are holding the original share certificate. Arranging a replacement share certificate is often a time consuming process and frustrates many a Welling conveyancing transaction. Where a new share is needed, you should approach the company director and secretary or managing agents (where applicable) for this as soon as possible.
