How does conveyancing in Driffield differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Driffield contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because builders in Driffield usually 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 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 Driffield or who has acted in the same development.

Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Driffield prior to instructing solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. My surveyor advised that some mortgage companies tend not give a loan on such a home.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Driffield.
