As far as conveyancing in South Harrow registration is no quicker or slower than anywhere else in the country. Rather than based on location, timeframes can adjust subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and whether the Land registry must send notices to any third parties. At present approximately 80% of submission are fully dealt with within 12 days but occasionally there can be longer delays.

How does conveyancing in South Harrow differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in South Harrow approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is completed. This is because developers in South Harrow 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 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 South Harrow or who has acted in the same development.

What does commercial conveyancing in South Harrow cover?

South Harrow conveyancing for business premises covers a broad array of guidance, supplied by qualified solicitors, relating to business property.

Commercial conveyancing solicitors can also offer advice on the sale of business assets, commercial mortgages and the termination of leases.

I am just shy of a 10% deposit on my apartment purchase in South Harrow , but I still want to proceed. Do I have options?

You can accept a smaller deposit. Most property owners will accept a lower deposit or even no deposit for a first time buyer or 100% mortgage. Be aware though that if you fail to complete you will still need to hand over a minimum of 10% of the purchase price regardless of how much deposit was agreed.

You can also agree a simultaneous exchange and completion as no deposit is required for this however neither party will be tied in until completion actually takes place and it can be risky if sellers change their mind at the last moment
