How does conveyancing in Skellingthorpe differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Skellingthorpe contact us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because developers in Skellingthorpe usually 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 property lawyers 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 Skellingthorpe or who has acted in the same development.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Skellingthorpe is where the house is located. Can you offer any assistance?
Flying freeholds in Skellingthorpe are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Skellingthorpe you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Skellingthorpe may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

What advice can you give us when it comes to choosing a Skellingthorpe conveyancing firm to carry out our lease extension conveyancing?
When appointing a conveyancer for your lease extension (regardless if they are a Skellingthorpe conveyancing firm) it is most important that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of conveyancing. We recommend that you speak with two or three firms including non Skellingthorpe conveyancing practices prior to instructing a firm. Where the conveyancing practice is ALEP accredited then that’s a bonus. The following questions might be useful:
If the firm is not ALEP accredited then why not? What volume of lease extensions have they completed in Skellingthorpe in the last year?

The figure above a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more comprehensive investigations.
