Can you explain why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Bargoed is more expensive?
The conveyancing costs for a leasehold premises in Bargoed is inevitably higher as compared to a freehold property. This is due to the supplemental work required in communicating with the freeholder and managing agents to collate the information concerning whether the rent and maintenance fee have been paid and whether there are any significant expenditure in the foreseeable future on repairs or maintenance of the block.
How does conveyancing in Bargoed differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Bargoed contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because new home sellers in Bargoed usually purchase 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Bargoed or who has acted in the same development.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Bargoed is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can impart?
Flying freeholds in Bargoed are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Bargoed you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Bargoed may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
