Unfortunately I am unable to travel far from Kempston. I would like to know the logic why all Kempston conveyancers aren't included on all lender panels?

Lenders tend to impose restrictions on either the type or volume of conveyancing firms on their approved list of lawyers. A common example of such restriction(s) being that a practice must have at least two partners. As well as restricting the structure of firm, some lenders decided to limit the size of their panel they permit to represent them.

How does conveyancing in Kempston differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Kempston come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because new home sellers in Kempston typically 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Kempston or who has acted in the same development.
