As far as conveyancing in Scotter is concerned, registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can adjust depending on the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry communicate with any interested parties. Currently approximately 80% of submission are fully dealt with in less than three weeks but occasionally there can be protracted hold-ups. Registration occurs after the purchaser has moved in to the property so an expedited registration is not always an essential issue but where there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer must communicate with the Registry to express the reasoning for the application to be prioritised.

How does conveyancing in Scotter differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Scotter approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because developers in Scotter usually 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 Scotter or who has acted in the same development.
