How does conveyancing in Carlton differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Carlton come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because house builders in Carlton typically purchase 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 Carlton or who has acted in the same development.

If you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will be an issue. Discount the offer by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property 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 current lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.

I need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor for freehold conveyancing in Carlton. I happened to chance upon a site which seems to have the ideal answer If there is a chance to get all this stuff done via phone that would be preferable. Should I be concerned? What are the potential pitfalls?
