How does conveyancing in Heywood differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Heywood come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because new home sellers in Heywood usually 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 Heywood or who has acted in the same development.

Is it legal for a freeholder to charge such fees for a leasehold conveyance in Heywood?

Heywood conveyancing on leasehold apartments normally involves the purchaser’s lawyer submitting questions for the landlord to address. Although the landlord is not legally bound to answer such questions most will be content to assist. They may charge a reasonable charge for responding to enquiries or supplying documentation. There is no set fee. The average fee for the paperwork that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some transactions it is above £800. The administration charge demanded by the landlord must be sent together with a summary of rights and obligations in respect of administration fees, without which the invoice is not strictly payable. In reality one has no option but to pay whatever is demanded if you want to exchange contracts with the buyer.
