How does conveyancing in Sale differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Sale contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because builders in Sale 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Sale or who has acted in the same development.

Generally speaking the outlay for major works tend not to be built into the maintenance charges, although some managing agents in Sale ask tenants to pay into a sinking fund created for the specific purpose of building a fund for larger works. Please note that where the lease has fewer than 80 years it will affect the marketability of the flat. Check with your lender that they are willing to to proceed given the lease term.
