How does conveyancing in Sutton differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Sutton come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because developers in Sutton typically purchase the site, 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 Sutton or who has acted in the same development.

I decided to have a survey done on a house in Sutton in advance of instructing conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. The surveyor has said that some mortgage companies tend not give a loan on such a premises.

It varies from the lender to lender. Bank of Scotland has different instructions from Birmingham Midshires. If you contact us we can look into this further with the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Sutton.

What does commercial conveyancing in Sutton cover?

Commercial conveyancing in Sutton covers a broad range of guidance, supplied by regulated solicitors, relating to business premises. By way of example, this type of conveyancing can cover the sale or purchase of freehold business premises or, more usually, the assignment of existing business tenancies or the drafting of new leasing arrangements. Commercial conveyancing solicitors can also offer advice on the sale of business assets, commercial mortgages and the termination of leases.

How does one remove a departed person's name from the title register for a property in Sutton?

If a Sutton property is co-owned and one of the owners dies, the name will not automatically be removed from the Land Registry title. You are not required to amend the title as when it comes to a sale you would simply be required to evidence why the joint proprietor is not a party to the conveyance, such as the probate documents.

With a view to making the sale conveyancing more straight forward for the sale of the property you may apply to have the deceased person erased from the title by applying to the land registry with proof of the death. There is no charge from the Registry for this service.
