Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Ireleth and Askam

How does conveyancing in Ireleth and Askam differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Ireleth and Askam come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because developers in Ireleth and Askam usually acquire 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 Ireleth and Askam or who has acted in the same development.

I opted to have a survey carried out on a property in Ireleth and Askam ahead of instructing solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. The surveyor advised that some lenders tend refuse to issue a mortgage on this type of premises.

What are the common deficiencies that you witness in leases for Ireleth and Askam properties?

Leasehold conveyancing in Ireleth and Askam is not unique. Most leases are unique and drafting errors can sometimes mean that certain provisions are wrong. The following missing provisions could result in a defective lease:

    A provision for the recovery of money spent for the benefit of another party. Service charge per centages that don't add up correctly leaving a shortfall

You could have difficulties when selling your property if you have a defective lease primarily because it impacts on the ability to obtain a mortgage on the property. Santander, Chelsea Building Society, and Aldermore all have express requirements when it comes to what is expected in a lease. Where a lender has been advised by their lawyers that the lease does not cover certain provisions they may refuse to provide security, forcing the buyer to pull out.

Leasehold Conveyancing in Ireleth and Askam - Sample of Questions you should ask before buying

    What is the maintenance charge and ground rent on the property? If a Ireleth and Askam lease has no more than 80 years it will impact the marketability of the property. Check with your bank that they are happy with residual term of the lease. Leases with fewer than 80 years remaining means that you will most likely require a lease extension sooner rather than later and you need to have some idea of what this would cost. Remember, in most cases you will be required to have been the owner of the premises for 24 months before you are entitled to extend the lease. How many years are left on the lease?
