How does conveyancing in Great Missenden differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Great Missenden come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because builders in Great Missenden 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 used to new build conveyancing in Great Missenden 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 Great Missenden before instructing conveyancers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. Our surveyor advised that some banks will refuse to give a loan on this type of house.

It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different instructions from Nationwide. Should you wish to telephone us we can look into this further via the appropriate mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Great Missenden. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Great Missenden to see if the conveyancing costs will increase in light of this.
