How does conveyancing in St Margarets differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in St Margarets come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because house builders in St Margarets usually purchase the real estate, 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in St Margarets or who has acted in the same development.

My hope is to purchase a garden flat in St Margarets. Conveyancing lawyer is waiting for, from the vendor, building insurance paperwork. Earlier today I was advised that the owner needs to forward the insurance schedule for the flat above in addition.

It is not unheard of in leasehold conveyancing in St Margarets to find Conveyancing in St Margarets in a minority of cases reveals that the lease obliges the leasehold owners to insure their individual flats as opposed to the freeholder insuring the whole premises - which is definitely preferable. You should clarify with your lawyer but it would appear that your property lawyer is seeking to verify that the complete building is insured. Insuring a ground floor apartment is no help when it comes to rebuilding after a fire if the other flat cannot be reinstated due to lack of insurance cover.
