How does conveyancing in Bishop Auckland differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Bishop Auckland contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because house builders in Bishop Auckland typically 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 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 Bishop Auckland or who has acted in the same development.

I am looking for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Bishop Auckland I like with amenity areas and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 51 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Bishop Auckland for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a lease with such few years left?

If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer about this.
