How does conveyancing in Cleobury Mortimer differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Cleobury Mortimer contact us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Cleobury Mortimer usually acquire 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 conveyancers 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 Cleobury Mortimer or who has acted in the same development.

Can you provide any advice for leasehold conveyancing in Cleobury Mortimer from the perspective of speeding up the sale process?
- Much of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Cleobury Mortimer can be reduced if you appoint lawyers the minute you market your property and request that they start to collate the leasehold information needed by the buyers’ solicitors. If there is a history of conflict with your landlord or managing agents it is very important that these are resolved before the property is marketed. The purchasers and their solicitors will be concerned about purchasing a flat where there is an ongoing dispute. You may need to swallow your pride and discharge any arrears of service charge or resolve the dispute prior to completion of the sale. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled ahead of the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You will still have to reveal particulars of the dispute to the purchasers, but it is clearly preferable to present the dispute as historic as opposed to ongoing. If you have carried out any alterations to the premises would they have required Landlord’s approval? In particular have you laid down wooden flooring? Most leases in Cleobury Mortimer state that internal structural alterations or addition of wooden flooring calls for a licence issued by the Landlord consenting to such alterations. Should you fail to have the approvals in place you should not communicate with the landlord without contacting your lawyer in the first instance. If you hold a share in a the Management Company, you should ensure that you hold the original share certificate. Obtaining a replacement share certificate can be a time consuming formality and frustrates many a Cleobury Mortimer home move. Where a reissued share is needed, you should approach the company officers or managing agents (where applicable) for this at the earliest opportunity.
