There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Gurnard registration formalities. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any interested parties. As of today approximately three quarters of such applications are fully addressed in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be extensive hold-ups. Registration occurs once the purchaser is living at the property so 'speed' is not always top priority but if it is urgent that the the registration takes place urgently then you or your conveyancer should communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for an expedited registration.

How does conveyancing in Gurnard differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Gurnard come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Gurnard usually buy 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 Gurnard or who has acted in the same development.
