Here is a sample of a selection of leasehold new build questions that you should expect your new-build leasehold conveyancing in Leconfield

    The Lease must contain a provision on behalf of the Vendor to pay the service charges in respect of unoccupied units in order to ensure that all services can be provided. There must be mutual enforceability of lessee’s covenants. Please provide evidence that the form of Lease proposed has been approved by the Land Registry. Has the Lease plan been approved by the Land Registry and if not when will they be lodged for this purpose?

Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £305k and identified one near me in Leconfield I like with amenity areas and railway links nearby, the downside is that it only has 52 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Leconfield for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a grave error purchasing a lease with such few years left?

Should you need a mortgage that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Discount the price by the expected lease extension will cost if it has not already been discounted. If the current owner has owned the property 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 existing lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer regarding this matter.

After what seems like an age I have had an offer on an maisonette in Leconfield accepted, but there is a chain. The current proprietors have offered on somewhere, although it’s not been accepted yet, and has viewings of other properties booked. I have instructed a local conveyancing lawyer in Leconfield. What should be my next step? When do I get the mortgage application with Co-operative going with Co-operative?

It is standard to have concerns where there is an associated chain given your reluctance to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is approx £1k, then survey, Leconfield conveyancing search charges, etc). The first course of action is to check that your lawyer is on the Co-operative approved list. As to the subsequent stages this very much depends on the circumstances of your case, desire for the property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market the majority of home buyers would apply for the mortgage with Co-operative and pay for the survey and only if it was satisfactory would they pay their solicitor to move forward with searches.
