Newbuilds for Conveyancers LIVE Webinar

Newbuild conveyancing is currently a major growth area but presents several pitfalls for the conveyancer.  Estate rent charges continue to cause problems and extended completion dates may cause issues if there is a material change of circumstances.  The course aims to look at some of the current issues.  Topics covered include:-

  • Problems with extended completion dates and loss of the mortgage
  • Enforceability of positive covenants and estate rent charge
  • Problems with newbuild guarantees
  • Planning issues
  • Community infrastructure levy
  • The developer’s attitudes towards ground rents
  • Problems with NHBC
  • Problems with architects’ certificates
  • Transfer of part and easements
