As someone unfamiliar with the Truro conveyancing process what is the number one tip you can impart for the legal transfer of property in Truro
Not many law firms or advisers will tell you this but conveyancing in Truro and elsewhere in Cornwall is an adversarial process. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists lots of room for conflict between you and others involved in the ownership transfer. For example, the seller, selling agent and even potentially your mortgage company. Choosing a lawyer for your conveyancing in Truro should not be taken lightly as your conveyancer is your adviser, and is the SOLE person in the legal process whose responsibility is to look after your best interests and to protect you.
We are witnessing a distinct creep in the "blame" culture- someone must be at fault for the process being so protracted. We recommend that you must always trust your lawyer ahead of all other parties when it comes to the legal assignment of property.

How does conveyancing in Truro differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Truro contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because house builders in Truro typically purchase 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 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 Truro or who has acted in the same development.
