How does conveyancing in Newquay differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Newquay come to us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because builders in Newquay typically purchase 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 property lawyers 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 Newquay or who has acted in the same development.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a simple, no chain conveyancing. Newquay is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Newquay are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Newquay you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds thoroughly. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Newquay may ascertain 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 property.
