How does conveyancing in Polesworth differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Polesworth contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because developers in Polesworth usually 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 Polesworth or who has acted in the same development.
Over the last few months I have been searching for a ground for flat up to £245,000 and found one near me in Polesworth I like with amenity areas and station nearby, the downside is that it's only got 49 remaining years left on the lease.

Should you require a home loan that many years will be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the price by the expected lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the property for a minimum of twenty four months you can request that they start the process of the extension and then assign it to you. An additional ninety years can be extended on to the current lease term with a zero ground rent applied. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this.

If you qualify, under the Leasehold Reform, Housing and Urban Development Act 1993 you can submit an application to the County Court for an order to dispense with the service of the initial notice. This will enable the lease to be lengthened by the magistrate. You will be obliged to prove that you have made all reasonable attempts to track down the landlord. On the whole an enquiry agent would be helpful to carry out a search and prepare a report which can be accepted by the court as evidence that the landlord can not be located.
