These day there are duplicates made of almost everything, and your conveyancer should know exactly where to find all the appropriate documentation so you may purchase or sell your property without any difficulty.

How does conveyancing in Huntingdon differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Huntingdon approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Huntingdon usually buy 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 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Huntingdon or who has acted in the same development.

Am I right to be concerned that third parties that I am dealing with are suggesting a web based conveyancing firm rather than a High Street Huntingdon conveyancing firm?

As with lots of professional services, often recommendations from family and friends can be extremely useful or valuable. Yet there are many people with a keen interest in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, financial adviser and lenders might all put forward lawyers to use. Sometimes these lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but sometimes there is an underlying commercial relationship behind the endorsement. You are at liberty to choose your preferred conveyancer. Don't forget that most lenders have an approved list of solicitors you must use for the lender aspect of your conveyancing.

We are FTB’s just having agreed a price on a property in Huntingdon, and are about to get solicitors lined up. We have utilised the various rating tools and the quotes are from all over the the UK. Is it essential to have a Huntingdon conveyancer local to our potential house? We are happy to do everything electronically, but I guess at some stage we will need to physically go into the conveyancing practitioner's office to sign contracts?

The lawyer does not have to be in Huntingdon, but opting for local means that you can go in if you need to, for instance, if a signature is needed urgently. Furthermore, a Huntingdon solicitor have established relationships with local agents and (if the vendor has instructed a local conveyancer) with them, which will help smooth the process.
