How does conveyancing in Silverton differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Silverton come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because house builders in Silverton typically 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 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 Silverton or who has acted in the same development.

Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold element on a property I put an offer in two weeks back in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Silverton is the location of the property. What do you suggest?

Flying freeholds in Silverton are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Silverton you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Silverton may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. 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 premises.

Developers have put forward a solicitor and I've obtained an estimate from them. They are nearly £250 cheaper than my local Silverton lawyer. What's the catch?

Housebuilders normally have lists of lawyers who are quick and who know the seller’s documentation and lawyer. As many developers offer an incentive to choose their approved conveyancer for this reason, any increased fees can be avoided and a developer won't put forward a conveyancing factory and run the risk of having the conveyancing stall when they require an exchange inside a month. A counter-argument for not opting for the recommended lawyer is that they may prove hesitant to 'push' your interests for fear of upsetting the sellers. Where you have concerns that this may be the situation you should remain with your local Silverton conveyancer.
