How does conveyancing in Ellesmere Port differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Ellesmere Port approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because developers in Ellesmere Port 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 property lawyers 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 Ellesmere Port or who has acted in the same development.

I am tempted by the attractive purchase price for a couple of flats in Ellesmere Port both have in the region of fifty years left on the lease term. Will this present a problem?
There are plenty of short leases in Ellesmere Port. The lease is a legal document that entitles you to use the premises for a period of time. As the lease gets shorter the value of the lease reduces and it becomes more costly to extend the lease. This is why it is generally wise to extend the lease term. More often than not it is difficult to sell a property with a short lease because mortgage companies less inclined to grant a loan on such properties. Lease enfranchisement can be a difficult process. We advise that you get professional help from a conveyancer and surveyor with experience in this arena.
