I am nearing an exchange on a house in Chorley and my parents have transferred the ten percent deposit to my lawyer. I am now informed that as the deposit has not arrived from me my conveyancer needs to disclose this to my bank. I am advised that, in also acting for the lender he must inform them that the balance of the purchase price is coming from anyone other than me. I informed the bank about my parents' contribution when I applied for the mortgage, so is it really appropriate for this now to delay the deal?

It may be that Virgin Money will allow you to rent out your former home without needing to switch to a buy-to-let mortgage but some lenders will add a surcharge to your mortgage rate to reflect the higher risk.

How does conveyancing in Chorley differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Chorley contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because new home sellers in Chorley typically acquire 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 Chorley or who has acted in the same development.

Speak to the owners direct and make sure they understand (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you intend to use your own,trusted Chorley conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will provide the negotiator at the agency a commission or hit his conveyancing targets demanded by HQ.
