I am need of leasehold conveyancing for an apartment in a fairly new development (five years old) in Gilberdyke. Almost all the flats are already occupied. Do I need carry out the neighbourhood searches for my conveyancing in Gilberdyke?

If you getting a loan, your bank will need some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Gilberdyke conveyancing searches are for you to decide upon. Your solicitor, will ’encourage’, perhaps strongly, that you should have the searches done, but he or she is duty bound in this regard.

How does conveyancing in Gilberdyke differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Gilberdyke come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is completed. This is because house builders in Gilberdyke usually buy 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 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 Gilberdyke or who has acted in the same development.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £195,000 and found one round the corner in Gilberdyke I like with amenity areas and transport links in the vicinity, the downside is that it only has 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Gilberdyke suitable, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a mortgage that many years may be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing owner has owned the premises for a minimum of twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

The lawyers handling our conveyancing in Gilberdyke has forwarded documents to review that reveal that the property is unregistered with epitome documents. Is it not the case that all properties in Gilberdyke should be registered?

It is unusual for property in Gilberdyke to be unregistered. An 'epitome' is basically a dossier of photocopies of documents affecting an unregistered title. Many Gilberdyke conveyancing lawyers will be familiar with this type of conveyancing but in the event that uncertainty exists the standard advice these days is for the seller to address the registration formalities first and then deal with the sale conveyance - this can though naturally cause a significant delay.
