How does conveyancing in Knutsford differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Knutsford contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because builders in Knutsford tend to 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 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 Knutsford or who has acted in the same development.

Taking into account that I am about to spend hundreds of thousands of pounds on 3 bedroom house in Knutsford I wish to have a conversation with the conveyancer regarding thehouse move ahead of appointing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

Absolutely - we would be delighted to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you speaking to the conveyancer who will be carrying out your conveyancing in Knutsford.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - each client is an important individual, not a matter reference. The solicitors that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are calculated and presented to you for your conveyancing in Knutsford should be the amount on the final invoice that you end up paying.

We're novice buyers - agreed a price, but the estate agent informed us that the seller will only go ahead if we appoint their recommended solicitors as they want an ‘expedited deal’. Our preferred option is to instruct a high street conveyancer used to conveyancing in Knutsford

We suspect that the seller is not behind this requirement. If they want ‘a quick sale', turning down a motivated buyer is likely to cause more damage than good. Avoid the agents and go straight to the sellers and explain that (a)you are motivated purchasers (b)you are ready to go, with finances in place © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you are going to instruct your own,trusted Knutsford conveyancing solicitors - as opposed tothose that will give their estate agent a kickback or achieve conveyancing thresholds demanded by senior management.

What can I do where I am not happy with the solicitor who did our conveyancing in Knutsford?
