How does conveyancing in North Hykeham differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in North Hykeham contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because new home sellers in North Hykeham tend to 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 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 North Hykeham or who has acted in the same development.

My husband and I are new to the buying process - had an offer accepted, yet the property agent advised that the vendor will only proceed if we instruct their recommended solicitors as they want a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a local conveyancer accustomed to conveyancing in North Hykeham

We suspect that the seller is not behind this requirement. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a motivated purchaser is not the way to achieve this. Avoid the agents and go straight to the owners and make sure they comprehend that (a)you are genuine buyers (b)you are ready to go, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you intend to instruct your own,trusted North Hykeham conveyancing solicitors - as opposed tothe ones that will provide their negotiator at the agency a kickback or achieve conveyancing figures pre-set by HQ.

My financial adviser has recommended their conveyancer for my conveyancing in North Hykeham - Is it not simpler easier to just instruct them?

This is not necessarily the case and you are free to use whichever solicitor you prefer for your North Hykeham home move. A conveyancer recommended by an estate agent may not necessarily be the best conveyancer, they may put forward their own conveyancing firm who are based far away. In this instance you may not have contact with your conveyancer and due to the lack of continuity in the transaction, it may be difficult to obtain progress reports.
