How does conveyancing in Thurrock differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Thurrock contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because developers in Thurrock tend to buy 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 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 Thurrock or who has acted in the same development.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I have offered on two weeks back in what was supposed to be a simple, no chain conveyancing. Thurrock is where the house is located. What do you suggest?

Your mortgage company may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy.

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.

Nevertheless there are numerous players in a conveyancing transaction; estate agents, financial adviser and mortgage companies might all suggest conveyancers to retain. On occasion these lawyers might be known to one of the organisations as experts in their field, but occasionally there might be a commercial relationship behind the recommendation.

I have just started marketing my 2 bed flat in Thurrock. Conveyancing has not commenced, but I have recently had a yearly maintenance charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?

The sensible thing to do is clear the maintenance contribution as usual given that all rents and maintenance invoices should be allotted on completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. Having a clear account will assist your cause and will leave you no worse off financially.
