Is there a reason why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Wisbech costs more?
In summary, leasehold conveyancing in Wisbech and Cambridgeshire usually involve additional work compared to freehold conveyancing. This includes lease investigation, liaising with the landlord about serving appropriate notices, obtaining current service charge and management information, securing the freeholder’s consents and reviewing management accounts. The obligations on both the landlord and the tenant in the lease need to be studied by the buyer’s conveyancing team and read from beginning to end – no matter how many different owners have owned the lease since it was first granted.

five months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in Wisbech took place. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?
The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.
How does conveyancing in Wisbech differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Wisbech contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because developers in Wisbech tend to 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 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 Wisbech or who has acted in the same development.
