As far as conveyancing in Ramsey is concerned, registration is no faster or slower than the rest of the country.

How does conveyancing in Ramsey differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Ramsey come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because builders in Ramsey usually buy 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 Ramsey or who has acted in the same development.
