How does conveyancing in Wigton differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Wigton approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because new home sellers in Wigton typically buy 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 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 used to new build conveyancing in Wigton or who has acted in the same development.

I am looking for a flat up to £195,000 and identified one round the corner in Wigton I like with amenity areas and station in the vicinity, however it only has 61 years on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Wigton in this price bracket, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake purchasing a short lease?

If you need a mortgage that many years will likely be a potential deal breaker. Reduce the offer by the anticipated lease extension will cost if not already taken into account. If the existing owner has owned the premises for at least 2 years you could request that they start the process of the extension and pass it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should speak to your conveyancing lawyer concerning this matter.
