My friend suggested that if I am purchasing in Charlton I should carry out a Neighbourhood, Planning and Local Amenity Search. Can you explain what the purpose of this search is?
A search of this type is occasionally included in the estimate for your Charlton conveyancing searches. It is not a small report of more than thirty pages, listing and detailing significant information about Charlton around the property and the people living there. It includes an Aerial Photograph, Planning Applications, Land Use, Mobile Phone Masts, Rights of Way, the Charlton Housing Market, Council Tax Banding, the type of People living in the area, the dominant type of Housing, the Average House Prices, Crime details, Charlton Education with plans and statistics, Local Amenities and other useful data about Charlton.
How does conveyancing in Charlton differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Charlton approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Charlton typically purchase the land, 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 property lawyers 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 Charlton or who has acted in the same development.
Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Charlton before instructing lawyers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. The surveyor advised that some lenders tend not grant a loan on such a property.
It varies from the lender to lender. Bank of Scotland has different instructions for example to Birmingham Midshires. Should you wish to call us we can check via the appropriate lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Charlton. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Charlton to see if the conveyancing will be more expensive.
