How does conveyancing in Ashby de la Zouch differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Ashby de la Zouch come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because developers in Ashby de la Zouch usually 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Ashby de la Zouch or who has acted in the same development.

Sometimes the solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there exists a commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You are at liberty to appoint your own lawyer. However, bear in mind that the majority of banks specify a panel list of lawyers you are obliged to use for the lender related work in your conveyancing.
