My bid for a property was accepted at auction in New Brighton. Conveyancing is needed. What are my next steps?
Having to all intents and purposes signed on the dotted line you should choose a conveyancing practitioner quickly as you now have a tight deadline in which to complete the conveyancing. An auction property will ordinarily have a bespoke legal pack. This will include most,if not all of the documents that your conveyancer requires.

How does conveyancing in New Brighton differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in New Brighton come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because developers in New Brighton 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 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in New Brighton or who has acted in the same development.

Frank (my husband) and I may need to let out our New Brighton basement flat for a while due to a new job. We used a New Brighton conveyancing practice in 2003 but they have since shut and we did not have the foresight to seek any advice as to whether the lease permits subletting. How do we find out?
A lease governs the relationship between the freeholder and you the leaseholder; in particular, it will indicate if subletting is banned, or permitted but only subject to certain conditions. The rule is that if the lease contains no specific ban or restriction, subletting is permitted. The majority of leases in New Brighton do not contain strict prohibition on subletting – such a clause would undoubtedly devalue the property. Instead, there is usually simply a requirement that the owner notifies the freeholder, possibly sending a copy of the sublease.
