How does conveyancing in Stapleton differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Stapleton come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because new home sellers in Stapleton 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 Stapleton or who has acted in the same development.

I decided to have a survey done on a property in Stapleton before instructing solicitors. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. The surveyor advised that some banks may not issue a mortgage on such a home.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Bank of Scotland has different instructions from Birmingham Midshires. Should you wish to call us we can investigate further with the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Stapleton. Conveyancing will be smoother if you use a solicitor in Stapleton especially if they are acquainted with such properties in Stapleton.

Me and my wife have agreed a price on a Stapleton ground floor flat we inherited ten years ago in 2009. I have over 15 years conveyancing know-how and, although retired, see no reason not to carry out my own legal work. The purchaser's property lawyer has informed me that their bank will not allow us to do our own conveyancing mandating that the funds to be transferred to a solicitor's bank account.

Mortgage requirements to lawyers from all mainstream lenders specify that If the seller does not have legal representation the buyer’s lawyers should check whether the bank needs to be informed so that a decision can be reached if they are prepared to progress.
