How does conveyancing in Maryport differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Maryport approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because new home sellers in Maryport tend to acquire 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 property lawyers 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 Maryport or who has acted in the same development.

Do you have any top tips for leasehold conveyancing in Maryport from the perspective of expediting the sale process?

  • A significant proportion of the frustration in leasehold conveyancing in Maryport can be bypassed where you appoint lawyers the minute you market your property and request that they start to collate the leasehold documentation which will be required by the buyers’ conveyancers.
  • If you have the benefit of shareholding in the Management Company, you should ensure that you have the original share document. Obtaining a new share certificate is often a time consuming formality and slows down many a Maryport conveyancing transaction. If a reissued share is necessary, you should approach the company director and secretary or managing agents (if applicable) for this as soon as possible. If you have had conflict with your landlord or managing agents it is very important that these are settled prior to the flat being marketed. The buyers and their solicitors will be reluctant to purchase a property where there is an ongoing dispute. You will have to accept that you will have to pay any arrears of service charge or resolve the dispute prior to completion of the sale. It is therefore preferable to have any dispute settled prior to the contract papers being issued to the buyers’ solicitors. You will still have to reveal details of the dispute to the buyers, but it is clearly preferable to present the dispute as historic as opposed to unresolved. In the event that you altered the property did you need the Landlord’s consent? In particular have you laid down wooden flooring? Maryport leases often stipulate that internal structural changes or installing wooden flooring require a licence issued by the Landlord consenting to such works. If you dont have the consents to hand do not communicate with the landlord without contacting your solicitor first.
