How does conveyancing in Brighouse differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Brighouse approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Brighouse tend to buy 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 Brighouse or who has acted in the same development.

Are there frequently found deficiencies that you see in leases for Brighouse properties?

    A provision to repair to or maintain parts of the building Maintenance charge proportions which don’t add up to the correct percentage

HSBC Bank, The Royal Bank of Scotland, and Alliance & Leicester all have express conveyancing instructions when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease is problematic they may refuse to provide security, forcing the purchaser to withdraw.
