How does conveyancing in Earls Court differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Earls Court approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because new home sellers in Earls Court usually 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 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 Earls Court or who has acted in the same development.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on last month in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Earls Court is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Earls Court are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Earls Court you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Earls Court may determine 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.

I am looking to sell my property. My previous conveyancers closed down. I would be grateful for any recommendation of a conveyancing firm. Im based in Earls Court if that makes a difference.

You should use our search tool to help you choose a solicitor for your conveyancing in Earls Court. We have connected thousands of home buyers and sellers with lender approved solicitors to ensure that the legalities of their house move runs smoothly.

Is it best to go with a Earls Court conveyancing practitioner who is local to the property I am hoping to buy? An old friend can deal with the conveyancing but his firm is located 400miles drive away.

The benefit of a local Earls Court conveyancing firm is that you can visit the firm to execute paperwork, present your ID and apply pressure on them if necessary. They will also have local knowledge which is a benefit. That being said it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If other friends have instructed your friend and on the whole were impressed that should surpass using an unfamiliar Earls Court conveyancing solicitor solely due to them being Earls Court based.
