How does conveyancing in Kenley differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Kenley come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because developers in Kenley tend to 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 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 Kenley or who has acted in the same development.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a house I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a simple, chain free conveyancing. Kenley is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?

Flying freeholds in Kenley are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Kenley you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Kenley may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. 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 residence.
