I have todaydiscovered that Wolstenholmes have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Dartmouth for a purchase of a freehold house 18 months ago. How can I check that my home is not still registered in the name of the former proprietor?

How does conveyancing in Dartmouth differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Dartmouth come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because builders in Dartmouth usually buy 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 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Dartmouth or who has acted in the same development.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £305k and identified one near me in Dartmouth I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, the downside is that it's only got 61 years on the lease. There is not much else in Dartmouth in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

If you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be an issue. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property for at least twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor concerning this matter.
