How does conveyancing in Shanklin differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Shanklin contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because new home sellers in Shanklin tend to acquire 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 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 used to new build conveyancing in Shanklin or who has acted in the same development.

As with lots of service providers, often recommendations from connections can be extremely useful or valuable. Yet there are numerous parties with a keen interest in a conveyancing deal; estate agents, mortgage brokers and banks might all suggest lawyers to appoint. Sometimes these solicitors might be known to one of the organisations as being good in their field, but occasionally there might be a financial incentive behind the endorsement. You have the right to appoint your own lawyer. However, bear in mind that some mortgage providers specify a panel list of conveyancers you must use for the mortgage related work in your transaction.
