How does conveyancing in Holsworthy differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Holsworthy contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because builders in Holsworthy tend to 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 Holsworthy or who has acted in the same development.
I have been on the look out for a leasehold apartment up to £305k and identified one round the corner in Holsworthy I like with a park and railway links nearby, the downside is that it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease. There is not much else in Holsworthy in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?
If you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be an issue. Reduce the price by the anticipated lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the existing proprietor has owned the premises for at least 2 years you can request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor concerning this.
I dont have enough spare cash to pay a 10% deposit on my flat purchase in Holsworthy , but I am keen go ahead. Do I have options?
One option is to try and accept a smaller deposit. Most property owners will accept a lesser deposit or even no deposit for a first time buyer or 100% mortgage. Be aware though that if you fail to complete you will still need to hand over a minimum of 10% of the purchase price regardless of how much deposit was agreed.
You can also agree a simultaneous exchange and completion as no deposit is required for this however neither party will be tied in until completion actually takes place and it can be risky if sellers change their mind at the last moment
