Nowadays there are copies made of almost everything, and your lawyer should be aware exactly where to look for all the suitable paperwork so you may buy or sell your property without a hitch.

How does conveyancing in Pwllheli differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Pwllheli come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because builders in Pwllheli typically purchase 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 used to new build conveyancing in Pwllheli or who has acted in the same development.

Your conveyancing lawyer is likely to suggest that you should discharge the service charge as usual given that all ground rent and maintenance invoices should be apportioned on completion, so you will be reimbursed by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents 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.
