How does conveyancing in Gwernaffield differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Gwernaffield approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because builders in Gwernaffield typically buy 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 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 used to new build conveyancing in Gwernaffield or who has acted in the same development.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £235,500 and found one near me in Gwernaffield I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Gwernaffield in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake acquiring a lease with such few years left?

Should you require a home loan the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you may request that they commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.

I am employed by a busy estate agency in Gwernaffield where we have witnessed a number of flat sales derailed due to leases having less than 80 years remaining. I have been given contradictory information from local Gwernaffield conveyancing firms. Please can you shed some light as to whether the seller of a flat can initiate the lease extension formalities for the buyer?

Provided that the seller has owned the lease for at least 2 years it is possible, to serve a Section 42 notice to kick-start the lease extension process and assign the benefit of the notice to the purchaser. This means that the buyer can avoid having to sit tight for 2 years to extend their lease. Both sets of lawyers will agree to form of assignment. The assignment needs to be completed before, or at the same time as completion of the disposal of the property.

Alternatively, it may be possible to agree the lease extension with the freeholder either before or after the sale. If you are informally negotiating there are no rules and so you cannot insist on the landlord agreeing to grant an extension or transferring the benefit of an agreement to the purchaser.

    Where a Gwernaffield lease has less than eighty years it will have adverse implications on the marketability of the apartment. Check with your mortgage company that they are content with residual term of the lease. Leases with less than 80 years remaining means that you will probably have to extend the lease sooner rather than later and you need to have some idea of what this will be. For most Gwernaffieldlease extensions you will need to own the residence for two years in order to be eligible to carry out a lease extension. Please tell me if there are any major works in the planning that will likely add a premium to the maintenance fees? How many of the leaseholders are in arrears for their maintenance charge payments?
