I have been told that property searches are a common reason for delay in Oakdale house deals. Is that correct?
The Council of Property Search Organisations (CoPSO) has noted the conclusions of a review by MoveWithUs that conveyancing searches do not figure amongst the most frequent causes of hindrances during the legal transfer of property. Searches are not likely to feature in any delay in conveyancing in Oakdale.
How does conveyancing in Oakdale differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Oakdale contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because new home sellers in Oakdale usually buy the site, 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 Oakdale or who has acted in the same development.

Estate agents have just been given the go-ahead to market my 2 bed apartment in Oakdale. Conveyancing lawyers have not yet been instructed, but I have recently had a half-yearly maintenance charge demand – what should I do?
Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should clear the invoice as usual because all ground rent and maintenance invoices should be apportioned as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
I acquired a garden flat in Oakdale, conveyancing having been completed July 1998. Can you shed any light on how much the price could be for a 90 year extension to my lease? Equivalent properties in Oakdale with a long lease are worth £176,000. The ground rent is £50 yearly. The lease runs out on 21st October 2073
With 50 years remaining on your lease the likely cost is going to range between £31,400 and £36,200 as well as professional fees.
The suggested premium range above a general guide to costs for extending a lease, but we are not able to advice on the actual costs in the absence of detailed investigations. You should not use the figures in tribunal or court proceedings. There are no doubt additional concerns that need to be considered and you obviously want to be as accurate as possible in your negotiations. Please do not move forward placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
