As a novice what is the most important number one tip you can impart about purchase conveyancing in South Norwood?
Not many law firms shout this from the rooftops but conveyancing in South Norwood and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists an abundance of opportunity for confrontation between you and others involved in the ownership transfer. For example, the seller, estate agent and even potentially a mortgage company. Appointing a lawyer for your conveyancing in South Norwood is a critical decision as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the ONE person in the process whose responsibility is to act in your legal interests and to keep you safe.

How does conveyancing in South Norwood differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in South Norwood approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because developers in South Norwood tend to buy the land, 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 South Norwood or who has acted in the same development.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a straight forward, no chain conveyancing. South Norwood is where the house is located. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in South Norwood are rare but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside South Norwood you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in South Norwood may ascertain 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 residence.
