I am buying a new build flat in Castleford. Conveyancing is a frightening process at the best of times but I have never purchased a new build flat before. What sort of enquires would be asked in new build conveyancing.

Set out below is a sample of a few leasehold new build questions that you can expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Castleford

Investor purchasers must be able to freely grant unsecured tenancies at market rents without requiring any consents. The Vendor must covenant to keep unsold units in good repair until long leases are granted therefore. Where service of notices and proceedings can be at the property demised please confirm that this can be amended to include simultaneous services at the Lessees’ solicitors’ offices where the Lessee from time to time is not resident in the UK - such solicitors may be varied by notice in writing to the Landlord from time to time but otherwise will be as previously specified.

My husband and I are new to the buying process - agreed a price, but the estate agent advised that the seller will only issue a contract if we instruct the agent's preferred lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a high street solicitor used to conveyancing in Castleford

We suspect that the seller is not behind this request. If they want ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious purchaser is going to damage their objectives. Try to communicate with the sellers directly and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you intend to instruct your own,trusted Castleford conveyancing firm - rather thanthose that will give their estate agent a introducer fee or meet his conveyancing thresholds demanded by head office.
