How does conveyancing in Dorridge differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Dorridge come to us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because builders in Dorridge 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Dorridge or who has acted in the same development.
I am looking for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one near me in Dorridge I like with a park and station nearby, however it's only got 51 years on the lease. There is not much else in Dorridge suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a home loan the remaining unexpired lease term will likely be problematic. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
