When can the exchange of contracts take place for residential conveyancing in Bovey Tracey and am I required to be at the conveyancers office?
If you are local to our conveyancing solicitors in Bovey Tracey you are invited in to sign documents. However, the firms we recommend provide a national conveyancing service and provide just as diligent and professional a job for you when dealing with you digitally. The signing of the sale agreement is not the point of no return. A signed contract is just a prerequisite for the firm to exchange contracts when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Bovey Tracey)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
How does conveyancing in Bovey Tracey differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Bovey Tracey approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because builders in Bovey Tracey typically 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 Bovey Tracey or who has acted in the same development.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one round the corner in Bovey Tracey I like with open areas and transport links in the vicinity, however it only has 51 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Bovey Tracey for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?
If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
