How does conveyancing in Hartburn differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Hartburn come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because builders in Hartburn 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.

Over the last few months I have been searching for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one close by in Hartburn I like with a park and transport links in the vicinity, however it's only got 49 years unexpired on the lease. There is not much else in Hartburn for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?
If you require a mortgage the shortness of the lease will likely be problematic. Reduce the price by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing proprietor has owned the property for at least twenty four months you may ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and pass it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.
