How does conveyancing in Holsworthy differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Holsworthy contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Holsworthy typically 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 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 Holsworthy or who has acted in the same development.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a simple, chain free conveyancing. Holsworthy is where the house is located. Is there any advice you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Holsworthy are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Holsworthy you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender 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 property.
