How does conveyancing in New Farnley differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in New Farnley come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is completed. This is because developers in New Farnley typically purchase 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 New Farnley or who has acted in the same development.

I own a studio flat in New Farnley, conveyancing formalities finalised October 1999. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Comparable properties in New Farnley with over 90 years remaining are worth £195,000. The ground rent is £45 invoiced every year. The lease ceases on 21st October 2082

With just 63 years remaining on your lease we estimate the premium for your lease extension to be between £16,200 and £18,600 plus plus your own and the landlord's "reasonable" professional fees.

The figure above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer. There are no doubt additional issues that need to be considered and clearly you want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. You should not take any other action based on this information before getting professional advice.
