How does conveyancing in Rottingdean differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Rottingdean come to us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because developers in Rottingdean typically purchase 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 conveyancers 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 Rottingdean or who has acted in the same development.

Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy.

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.

Taking into account that I will soon part with 450k on a property in Rottingdean I would like to talk to a conveyancer about mytransaction in advance of instructing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

Should I choose a Rottingdean conveyancing practitioner who is local to the property I am buying? We have a good friend who can carry out the legal formalities however his firm is located approximately 350kilometers drive away.
