Recently asked questions about conveyancing in South Hornchurch

Our South Hornchurch lawyer has spotted a difference between the surveyor’s assumptions in the home valuation survey and what is revealed within the conveyancing documents. My lawyer informs me that he is obliged to ensure that the bank is happy with this discrepancy and is content to go ahead. Is my conveyancer’s course or action correct?

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

Most buyers of new build property in South Hornchurch come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because developers in South Hornchurch usually 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 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 South Hornchurch or who has acted in the same development.
