How does conveyancing in Milton Keynes differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Milton Keynes come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because new home sellers in Milton Keynes usually acquire 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 used to new build conveyancing in Milton Keynes or who has acted in the same development.

Flying freeholds in Milton Keynes are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Milton Keynes you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Milton Keynes 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 premises.
