It is 10 years ago since I purchased my house in Preston. Conveyancing lawyers have just been retained on the sale but I am unable to find the deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?
You need not be too concerned. First there is a chance that the deeds will be retained by the mortgage company or they may stored with the lawyers who acted in the purchase.

How does conveyancing in Preston differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Preston contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because house builders in Preston 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 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 Preston or who has acted in the same development.
