In summary, leasehold conveyancing in Hope Valley and Derbyshire usually requires extra hours of investigation compared to freehold transactions. This includes lease investigation, communicating with the landlord about the service of required notices, procuring current service charge and management information, securing the landlord’s consents and reviewing management accounts. The obligations on both the landlord and the tenant in the lease need to be studied by the buyer’s conveyancing team and read from beginning to end – regardless of the fact the lease has passed through many different property solicitors hands since it was first entered into.

How does conveyancing in Hope Valley differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Hope Valley come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Hope Valley typically purchase 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Hope Valley or who has acted in the same development.

If so you will need to make them aware of the new contact details and have the mortgage documents are re-issued. Your new conveyancer needs to be on the mortgage company approved list to avoid escalating expenses and complications. So that should be your first question of the new solicitors.
