How does conveyancing in Langley differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Langley contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because developers in Langley tend to 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 Langley or who has acted in the same development.

Can you provide any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in Langley with the purpose of saving time on the sale process?
- Much of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Langley can be bypassed if you appoint lawyers as soon as you market your property and ask them to put together the leasehold documentation which will be required by the purchasers’ representatives. If you have carried out any alterations to the residence would they have required Landlord’s permission? Have you, for example laid down wooden flooring? Langley leases often stipulate that internal structural alterations or addition of wooden flooring calls for a licence from the Landlord approving such alterations. Should you dont have the approvals in place do not contact the landlord without contacting your lawyer in the first instance. If you are supposed to have a share in the Management Company, you should ensure that you are holding the original share certificate. Obtaining a new share certificate is often a time consuming process and slows down many a Langley home move. Where a duplicate share certificate is needed, do contact the company director and secretary or managing agents (if relevant) for this as soon as possible. If you have had any disputes with your freeholder or managing agents it is essential that these are settled prior to the flat being marketed. The buyers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a flat where there is a current dispute. You may need to swallow your pride and discharge any arrears of service charge or settle the dispute prior to the buyers completing the purchase. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled prior to the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You are still duty bound to disclose particulars of the dispute to the buyers, but it is clearly preferable to present the dispute as over as opposed to unresolved.
