How does conveyancing in Cambourne differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Cambourne contact us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because house builders in Cambourne 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. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Cambourne or who has acted in the same development.
I am looking for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one near me in Cambourne I like with a park and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Cambourne suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error buying a short lease?
If you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of 2 years you may ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
