How does conveyancing in Ferryside differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Ferryside contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because house builders in Ferryside usually purchase the site, 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Ferryside or who has acted in the same development.

My wife and I may need to let out our Ferryside garden flat for a while due to a new job. We used a Ferryside conveyancing practice in 2002 but they have since shut and we did not think at the time seek any advice as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?
Some leases for properties in Ferryside do contain a provision to say that subletting is only permitted with prior consent from the landlord. The landlord cannot unreasonably refuse but, in such cases, they would need to see references. Experience suggests that problems are usually caused by unsatisfactory tenants rather than owner-occupiers and for that reason you can expect the freeholder to take up the references and consider them carefully before granting permission.
I purchased a split level flat in Ferryside, conveyancing formalities finalised half a dozen years ago. Can you work out an approximate cost of a lease extension? Similar properties in Ferryside with a long lease are worth £181,000. The average or mid-range amount of ground rent is £55 per annum. The lease ends on 21st October 2071
With only 50 years left to run we estimate the price of your lease extension to be between £32,300 and £37,400 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.
The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to supply a more accurate figure in the absence of comprehensive investigations. You should not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Neither should you take any other action placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
