How does conveyancing in Croston differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Croston approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because developers in Croston 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 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 Croston or who has acted in the same development.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Croston is where the house is located. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Croston are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Croston you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Croston may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold residence.

My father has suggested that I instruct his lawyers for conveyancing in Croston. Do I take his advice?
There are no two ways about it the ideal way to select a conveyancing solicitor is to have feedback from friends or relatives who have experience in using the firm that you are are thinking of instructing.
Our financial adviser has suggested using their lawyer for the conveyancing in Croston - won’t it be better to just instruct them?
This is not necessarily the case and you are free to instruct whichever property lawyer you decide for your Croston home move. The solicitor put forward by a 3rd party adviser may not always be the right property lawyer, they may put forward their own conveyancing firm who are based remotely. In this instance you may not have contact with your lawyer and due to the lack of continuity in the transaction, it may be difficult to obtain progress reports.
