How does conveyancing in Boston differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Boston contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because new home sellers in Boston usually acquire 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 Boston or who has acted in the same development.

Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Boston ahead of instructing conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold element to the property. My surveyor advised that some banks may not issue a loan on a flying freehold house.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Bank of Scotland has different requirements from Halifax. Should you wish to call us we can check via the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Boston. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Boston to see if the conveyancing will be more expensive.

A solicitor would need to be really poor to suggest changing them. Has the mortgage offer been generated? In the event that it has you must advise them of the new contact details and get the mortgage documents are issued to the new lawyers. The solicitor ideally needs to be on the mortgage company panel to avoid added expenses and delays. So that should be your starting point.
