Completed the sale of my flat in Ladywood last April yet the purchaser is Skype messaging me to say her lawyer is waiting to hear from mine. What are the post completion sale formalities now that I have sold?

Post completion of your sale your lawyer should deliver the transfer deeds and all additional paperwork to the purchaser's lawyers. If applicable, your conveyancer should also confirm that the mortgage has been repaid to the buyers conveyancers.

How does conveyancing in Ladywood differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Ladywood approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Ladywood typically 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 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 Ladywood or who has acted in the same development.
