How does conveyancing in East London differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in East London approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because new home sellers in East London 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 property lawyers 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 East London or who has acted in the same development.

If a East London property is jointly owned and one of the proprietors passes away, the name will not immediately be removed from the Land Registry title. It is not necessary to amend the title as in the event of a disposal your conveyancer would simply be asked to evidence as to the reason the co proprietor is missing from the contract, usually this is in the form of a grant of probate.
