There is nothing unique when it comes to conveyancing in Irlam and Cadishead registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can differ according to who lodges the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry have to notify any third parties. At present in the region of 80% of such applications are fully dealt with within two weeks but some can be subject to longer delays. Historically registration is effected once the new owner has moved in to the property so an expedited registration is not usually top priority but where it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer can speak with the land registry and explain the circumstances.
How does conveyancing in Irlam and Cadishead differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Irlam and Cadishead come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because house builders in Irlam and Cadishead tend to buy the land, 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 Irlam and Cadishead or who has acted in the same development.
I am looking at a two apartments in Irlam and Cadishead both have about 50 years unexpired on the leases. Will this present a problem?
A lease is a right to use the premises for a prescribed time frame. As the lease gets shorter the value of the lease decreases and it becomes more expensive to acquire a lease extension. This is why it is advisable to extend the lease term. It is often difficult to sell a property with a short lease as mortgage lenders less inclined to grant a loan on properties of this type. Lease enfranchisement can be a difficult process. We recommend you get professional help from a solicitor and surveyor with experience in this arena.
