How does conveyancing in Barnoldswick differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Barnoldswick come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because builders in Barnoldswick tend to buy 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 conveyancers 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 Barnoldswick or who has acted in the same development.

I decided to have a survey completed on a property in Barnoldswick before retaining lawyers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold element to the house. My surveyor has said that some lenders will not grant a mortgage on such a property.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Bank of Scotland has different instructions from Halifax. Should you wish to call us we can look into this further via the relevant bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Barnoldswick. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Barnoldswick especially if they regularly deal with such properties in Barnoldswick.

I need to find a conveyancing solicitor for residential conveyancing in Barnoldswick. I've land on a site which seems to have the perfect solution If there is a chance to get all the legals completed via phone that would be ideal. Should I be concerned? What are the potential pitfalls?
