How does conveyancing in Epping differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Epping come to us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Epping usually acquire 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 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 Epping or who has acted in the same development.

I today plan to offer on a house that appears to meet my requirements, at a great figure which is making it more attractive. I have subsequently been informed that it's a leasehold as opposed to freehold. I would have thought that there are issues buying a house with a leasehold title in Epping. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed. Will my lawyers set out the implications of buying a leasehold house in Epping ?

The majority of houses in Epping are freehold and not leasehold. In this scenario it’s worth having a local conveyancer who is familiar with the area who can assist with the conveyancing process. We note that you are buying in Epping in which case you should be shopping around for a Epping conveyancing solicitor and be sure that they are used to dealing with leasehold houses. First you will need to check the number of years remaining. As a leaseholder you will not be entirely free to do whatever you want with the house. The lease comes with conditions such as requiring the freeholder’spermission to conduct alterations. You may also be required to pay a service charge towards the maintenance of the estate where the house is located on an estate. Your conveyancer should report to you on the legal implications.

I invested in buying a studio flat in Epping, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Equivalent properties in Epping with an extended lease are worth £197,000. The ground rent is £55 yearly. The lease runs out on 21st October 2073

With only 54 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to range between £32,300 and £37,400 as well as legals.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more detailed investigations. You should not use this information in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt other concerns that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information without first seeking the advice of a professional.
