How does conveyancing in Ammanford differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Ammanford contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because new home sellers in Ammanford usually purchase 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 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 Ammanford or who has acted in the same development.

Jane (my partner) and I may need to sub-let our Ammanford garden flat temporarily due to a new job. We instructed a Ammanford conveyancing practice in 2004 but they have closed and we did not think at the time seek any advice as to whether the lease prohibits the subletting of the flat. How do we find out?

A small minority of properties in Ammanford do contain a provision to say that subletting is only permitted with prior consent from the landlord. The landlord cannot unreasonably refuse but, in such cases, they would need to see references. Experience dictates that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting permission.

    The best form of lease structure is where the freehold interest is in the ownership of the leaseholders. In this situation the tenants enjoy control and even though a managing agent is often retained where the building is larger than a house conversion, the managing agent acts for the leaseholders themselves. Its a good idea to discover as much as possible regarding the company managing the block as they will impact your use and enjoyment of the property. Being a leasehold owner you are frequently at the mercy of the managing agents both financially and when it comes to every day matters such as the tidiness of the common parts. Enquire of other people what they think of their service. On a final note, investigate as to the dates that you are obliged pay the maintenance charge to the managing agents and specifically what you get for your money. Who manages the block?
