How does conveyancing in Tetbury differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Tetbury come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because new home sellers in Tetbury tend to acquire 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 Tetbury or who has acted in the same development.

The property lawyers handling our conveyancing in Tetbury has forwarded documents to review that show the land is unregistered with epitome documents. Is it not the case that all houses in Tetbury are registered?

Although most properties in Tetbury are now registered with the Land Registry there are still some that are unregistered. Any property in Tetbury that has been remortgaged since the late 1980’s will have been registered at the HMLR under the compulsory ‘first registration’ scheme. However, if a Tetbury property has not changed hands in that time then it’s likely the old fashioned title deeds will be the only evidence of ownership.Plenty of Tetbury conveyancing solicitors will be familiar with such matters but in the event that uncertainty prevails the conventional guidance nowadays appears to be for the seller to deal with the registration formalities first and subsequently deal with the transfer to the buyer - this will have a domino effect to result in a significant delay.
