How does conveyancing in Eccleshall differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Eccleshall contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because new home sellers in Eccleshall 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 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 Eccleshall or who has acted in the same development.

I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £235,500 and identified one near me in Eccleshall I like with a park and transport links nearby, however it only has 49 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Eccleshall for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing solicitor regarding this.
