At last I have had an offer on a maisonette in Selsdon agreed to, but there is a chain. The sellers have put an offer on a flat, however it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other properties booked. I have instructed a bricks and mortar conveyancing solicitor in Selsdon. What do I do now? At what point do I apply for the mortgage with Aldermore?
It is understandable to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket too early (mortgage application is approx one thousand pounds, then survey, Selsdon conveyancing search charges, etc). The first thing to do is check that your solicitor is on the Aldermore approved list. As to the subsequent stages this very much dictated by the circumstances of your transaction, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. During a buoyant market the majority of home buyers will apply for a home loan with Aldermore and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their lawyer to move forward with the conveyancing in Selsdon.
How does conveyancing in Selsdon differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Selsdon approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because builders in Selsdon typically 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 used to new build conveyancing in Selsdon or who has acted in the same development.
