If you getting a mortgage, your mortgage company will insist on some (many) of the searches so you'll have no choice. If not, then Horwich conveyancing searches are optional. No doubt your conveyancer, will 'advise', perhaps in the strongest possible terms, that you should have the searches done, but he or she is duty bound in this regard. One thing to bear in mind; if you are likely to sell the house one day, it may be of interest to your future buyer what the searches contain. Sometimes houses with no practical issues can still throw up adverse search results. But if you choose to instruct your lawyer to proceed without searches then your lawyer will have to follow your instructions or ask you to appoint a different lawyer for your conveyancing in Horwich.

How does conveyancing in Horwich differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Horwich contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because new home sellers in Horwich tend to purchase the site, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Horwich or who has acted in the same development.

I’m about to sell my ground floor apartment in Horwich. Conveyancing is yet to be initiated, however I have just received a yearly maintenance charge demand – Do I pay up?

It best that you pay the maintenance contribution as usual as all rents and service charges should be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most management companies will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
