I have given 2 months notice to my existing landlord and must vacate my rented property in Brough by 4/7/2022. Conveyancing for my house purchase is underway. How realistic is it to complete in six weeks as don't want to have to find temporary accommodation?
It is unwise to give notice on a rental unless you have exchanged. Assuming that you have not previously done so, contact to your lawyer and request that they apply pressure on the owners side, try to a target completion date that everyone will aim to achieve
How does conveyancing in Brough differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Brough contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is completed. This is because builders in Brough usually acquire 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 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. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Brough or who has acted in the same development.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Brough is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Brough are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Brough you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Brough 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 premises.
