How does conveyancing in Kingston Vale differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Kingston Vale approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because developers in Kingston Vale usually buy 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 Kingston Vale or who has acted in the same development.

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.
My husband and I are novice buyers - had an offer accepted, but the selling agent told us that the seller will only move forward if we use their chosen conveyancers as they need a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a high street conveyancer who is accustomed to conveyancing in Kingston Vale
We suspect that the seller is unaware of this request. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated buyer is going to damage their objectives. Speak to the owners direct and make the point that (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are ready to go, with finances arranged © you are unencumbered (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)but you will continue to use your own,trusted Kingston Vale conveyancing firm - not the ones that will provide the negotiator at the agency a kickback or meet his conveyancing figures pre-set by corporate headquarters.
