AssumingI was to buy a freehold homein Woodley mortgage fee and dispense with a survey and no local authority searches how much would I expect to to save on my conveyancing in Woodley?

Any savings you would make would be isolated to the costs for searches.

How does conveyancing in Woodley differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Woodley approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because new home sellers in Woodley tend to 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 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 Woodley 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 Woodley I like with a park and station in the vicinity, however it's only got 51 remaining years left on the lease. I can't really find anything else in Woodley for this price, so just wondered if I would be making a mistake buying a short lease?

If you need a mortgage the shortness of the lease may be problematic. Discount 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 ask them to commence the lease extension formalities and then assign it to you. You can add 90 years to the existing lease term and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing solicitor about this matter.
