How does conveyancing in Dinas Powys differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Dinas Powys contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because new home sellers in Dinas Powys usually buy the real estate, 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 Dinas Powys or who has acted in the same development.
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £245,000 and found one round the corner in Dinas Powys I like with a park and station nearby, the downside is that it only has 61 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Dinas Powys in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?
Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease will be problematic. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you could request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
