I require conveyancing for a flat in a relatively new development (five years old) in Alfriston. Almost all the flats are already occupied. Do I need carry out the neighbourhood searches for my conveyancing in Alfriston?
You are taking a significant risk in refusing to carrying out Alfriston conveyancing searches. Without searches you have no clarity over flooding, environmental etc which may mean you walk away due to potential problems down the line. If you are buying mortgage free there is no legal requirement to have them, but we would absolutely advise in the strongest possible terms that your lawyer conducts them. If timings and driving down costs are primary concerns you should discuss with your lawyer about the viability of search insurance
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Alfriston I like with a park and railway links nearby, however it's only got 49 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Alfriston in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
If you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
