How does conveyancing in Chalk Farm differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Chalk Farm contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because new home sellers in Chalk Farm usually buy 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 used to new build conveyancing in Chalk Farm or who has acted in the same development.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my basement apartment in Chalk Farm.Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon however I have just had a quarterly service charge invoice – what should I do?

It best that you pay the invoice as normal because all ground rent and service payments will be apportionedon completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process
