How does conveyancing in Amble differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Amble approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because new home sellers in Amble typically buy the land, 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 used to new build conveyancing in Amble or who has acted in the same development.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £305k and found one near me in Amble I like with amenity areas and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Amble suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the expected 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 request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
