My wife and I are about to exchange on the purchase of a property in Hathern but as a result of wreckage from a small fire at the property I have managed to agree recompense from the vendor in the sum of three thousand pounds in the form of a reduction in the price. This was going to be dealt with as part of a side agreement yet Santander will not agree to this. Why were they involved?

Any conveyancer that is on the Santander approved list is required to advise Santander of any changes to the sale price.

How does conveyancing in Hathern differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Hathern approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because house builders in Hathern usually purchase 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 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 used to new build conveyancing in Hathern or who has acted in the same development.

I am using a search engine for the phrase conveyancing in Hathern it reveals many property lawyersin the vicinity. How do I determine which is the suitable solicitor for me?
