How does conveyancing in Forest Row differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Forest Row come to 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 Forest Row tend to purchase 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Forest Row or who has acted in the same development.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a flat up to £305k and found one round the corner in Forest Row I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it's only got 61 years unexpired on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Forest Row in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error acquiring a short lease?
Should you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease will be problematic. Discount the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you could ask them to start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer regarding this.

As usual with these online conveyancers you need to read ALL the small print - did you notice the extra charge for dealing with the mortgage?
My financial adviser has suggested using their conveyancer for the conveyancing in Forest Row - Surely it’s easier to just instruct them?
This is not necessarily the case and you are entitled to use whichever conveyancing practitioner of your choosing for your Forest Row conveyancing. A solicitor put forward by a 3rd party adviser may not necessarily be the best property lawyer, they may suggest their preferred conveyancing firm who are based remotely. In this instance you may not have contact with your lawyer and due to the lack of continuity in the transaction, it may be difficult to obtain progress reports.
