How does conveyancing in Barnet differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Barnet contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because new home sellers in Barnet usually purchase 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.

I’m about to sell my garden flat in Barnet. Conveyancing has not commenced, but I have recently had a yearly maintenance charge demand – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
The sensible thing to do is pay the invoice as normal given that all rents and maintenance payments should be allotted on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date.
