How does conveyancing in Plympton differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Plympton come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because house builders in Plympton typically 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 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 Plympton or who has acted in the same development.
Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Plympton in advance of instructing lawyers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. The surveyor advised that some mortgage companies tend not issue a loan on this type of house.
It varies from the lender to lender. HSBC has different requirements from Halifax. If you e-mail us we can check with the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Plympton. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Plympton especially if they are acquainted with such properties in Plympton.
In what way does the Landlord & Tenant Act 1954 impact my business offices in Plympton and how can your lawyers assist?
The 1954 Act affords security of tenure to business lessees, giving them the right to make a request to court for a renewal tenancy and continue in occupation at the end of the lease term. There are limited grounds that a landlord can refuse a lease renewal and the rules are complex. Fees are different for commercial conveyancing. Plympton is one of the many locations in which our lawyers have offices
We're first time buyers - had an offer accepted, but the agent has warned us that the owners will only move forward if we instruct the agent's chosen conveyancers as they need an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a family conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Plympton
We suspect that the seller is not behind this requirement. Should the seller want ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a genuine buyer is counter productive. Speak to the owners direct and explain that (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances arranged © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you will continue to appoint your preferred Plympton conveyancing firm - not the ones that will provide their estate agent a commission or achieve conveyancing targets pre-set by corporate headquarters.
