How does conveyancing in East Ham differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in East Ham approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because developers in East Ham tend to buy the site, 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 used to new build conveyancing in East Ham or who has acted in the same development.

We're novice buyers - agreed a price, yet the estate agent told us that the seller will only move forward if we use their recommended conveyancers as they are insisting on an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a family conveyancer who is accustomed to conveyancing in East Ham

We suspect that the seller is not behind this request. Should the owner desire ‘a quick sale', alienating a motivated buyer is counter productive. Speak to the owners direct and make sure they understand (a)you are genuine purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you intend to instruct your preferred East Ham conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will earn the negotiator at the agency a commission or achieve conveyancing figures pre-set by senior management.

I yesterday discovered that one of the partners of the solicitors undertaking the purchase conveyancing in East Ham is is the father of the owners that we are purchasing from. Is this permitted?

As long as there is no conflict of interest this should be fine. If you are needing a home loan then the bank may have a say as many mortgage companies have specific requirements on this. For example for Chelsea Building Society as of 21/3/2023, the requirements read as follows :

1.15- May your firm act if the person dealing with the transaction or a member of his immediate family is the borrower?

Yes, provided that:
* there is no conflict of interest and none arises during the transaction
* the firm is a partnership
* the conveyancer acting is not the borrower or a member of the borrower's immediate family.
