As I am unsure how the conveyancing process works what is the most important number one tip you can impart concerning purchase conveyancing in Mudeford?
You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Mudeford or throughout Dorset is an adversarial process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there is an abundance of room for friction between you and others involved in the ownership transfer. For instance, the vendor, selling agent and on occasion a bank. Appointing a solicitor for your conveyancing in Mudeford is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONLY party in the process whose interest is to look after your best interests and to keep you safe.
Every so often a potential adversary may attempt to sway you that you should follow their advice. As an example, the estate agent may claim to be helping by suggesting your conveyancer is dragging his heels. Or your mortgage broker may tell you to do something that is contrary to your lawyers recommendation. You should always trust your lawyer above all other parties in the conveyancing process.
We are expecting a mortgage offer soon. The lender mentioned the mortgage came with free conveyancing. Does this mean I have to use their panel lawyer as I would prefer to instruct a local conveyancing solicitor in Mudeford?
Do check but the chances are that appoint one of their panel conveyancers where you accept the "fee-free" deal. Contact the lender and ask if they allow a cash alternative. It is not unheard for a lender to give a £250 cashback as an alternative in which case you could put that amount towards your preferred conveyancing solicitor near Mudeford.

How does conveyancing in Mudeford differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Mudeford contact us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because developers in Mudeford typically acquire the land, 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Mudeford or who has acted in the same development.
