I have decided to exercise my right to buy my property in Teddington off the council. I have a mortgage agreed with Yorkshire BS. Conveyancing is new to me. Can I proceed without a solicitor easily? I think we can but we keep being told I should have one. Any advice?

One of which is to verify what plans the Council have for repairs and refurbishment for the next five years. Many leaseholders have been stung for contributions of thousands of pounds. In any event, if you are getting a mortgage with Yorkshire BS, you will need to appoint a solicitor on the Yorkshire BS conveyancing panel.
How does conveyancing in Teddington differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Teddington contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because new home sellers in Teddington tend to acquire 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 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 Teddington or who has acted in the same development.

New build sellers have put forward a lawyer and I've sought an estimate from them. It's nearly £400 cheaper than my preferred Teddington conveyancer. Should I use them?
Housebuilders often have lists of lawyers who expedite matters and who know the builder's paperwork and conveyancing practitioner. As many developers offer an inducement to use their approved conveyancing practitioner for this reason, any increased fees can be avoided and a developer will not suggest a conveyancing warehouse and run the risk of having the conveyancing delayed when they need an exchange within a tight time frame. The argument for not agreeing to use the suggested conveyancer is that they may be unwilling to 'push' your interests for fear of upsetting the developer. If you worry that this may be the case you should stick with your high street Teddington property lawyer.
