How does conveyancing in Fordingbridge differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Fordingbridge approach us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because builders in Fordingbridge typically acquire 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 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 Fordingbridge or who has acted in the same development.

Even where you use a solicitor outside Fordingbridge you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy.

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 premises.

My husband and I are first time buyers - had an offer accepted, yet the property agent advised that the owners will only issue a contract if we use their recommended conveyancers as they want a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a local conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in Fordingbridge

We suspect that the seller is unaware of this request. If they want ‘a quick sale', alienating a serious buyer is not the way to achieve this. Speak to the owners direct and make sure they understand (a)you are motivated purchasers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are chain free (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to instruct your own,trusted Fordingbridge conveyancing firm - as opposed tothose that will earn the estate agent a referral fee or meet his conveyancing figures pre-set by head office.
