How does conveyancing in North Newbald differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in North Newbald approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because developers in North Newbald tend to 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 North Newbald or who has acted in the same development.
I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold element on a property I have offered on last month in what should have been a straight forward, chain free conveyancing. North Newbald is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can impart?
Flying freeholds in North Newbald are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside North Newbald you would need to get your solicitor to go 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 North Newbald 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 residence.
