How does conveyancing in Basildon differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Basildon come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Basildon tend to buy the site, 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 Basildon or who has acted in the same development.
Do I need to be concerned that third parties that I am dealing with are recommending a factory type conveyancing firm rather than a local Basildon conveyancing practice?
As with many professional services, often input from connections can be worth their weight in gold. But there are many players in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, mortgage brokers and banks might all suggest solicitors to appoint. Sometimes these lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but sometimes there may be a financial incentive behind the recommendation. You are at liberty to select your preferred lawyer. Don't forget that some mortgage providers specify a panel list of solicitors you must use for the lender related work in your conveyancing.

What advice can you give us when it comes to choosing a Basildon conveyancing practice to carry out our lease extension conveyancing?
If you are instructing a property lawyer for lease extension works (regardless if they are a Basildon conveyancing practice) it is imperative that he or she should be familiar with the legislation and specialises in this area of work.

The figure that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you the actual costs without more detailed investigations. Do not use the figures in a Notice of Claim or as an informal offer.

You should not take any other action placing reliance on this information without first getting professional advice.
