How does conveyancing in Box differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Box approach us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because developers in Box typically 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 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 Box or who has acted in the same development.

Is it best to choose a Box conveyancing practitioner who is local to the property I am purchasing? An old friend can deal with the legal work but her office is a couple of hundredkilometers drive away.

The benefit of a high street Box conveyancing firm is that you can pop in to sign documents, present your identification documents and pester them if necessary. They will also have local knowledge which is a bonus. That being said nothing is more important than finding someone that will pull out all the stops for you. If other friends have used your friend and the majority were happy that must trump using an unfamiliar Box conveyancing solicitor just because they are based in the area.
