How does conveyancing in Herne Hill differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Herne Hill approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because builders in Herne Hill 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 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 Herne Hill or who has acted in the same development.
I have been on the look out for a flat up to £245,000 and identified one close by in Herne Hill I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, however it only has 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Herne Hill in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a lease with such few years left?
Should you require a mortgage the remaining unexpired lease term will be an issue. Reduce the offer by the amount the lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the current owner has owned the premises for at least twenty four months you may ask them to start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor regarding this matter.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Herne Hill. Before I get started I want to be sure as to the number of years remaining on the lease.
If the lease is recorded at the land registry - and almost all are in Herne Hill - then the leasehold title will always include the basic details of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.
I have given up negotiating a lease extension in Herne Hill. Can this matter be resolved via the Leasehold Valuation Tribunal?
