  • 1 Excellent communication and pure property experience are key benefits that you should look for when choosing conveyancing solicitors.

We wanted to use a conveyancing solicitor in Waddon for our house move. Our broker has since notified us that our bank Bank of Ireland won't deal with them. Why is this not regarded as unfair competition?

How does conveyancing in Waddon differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Waddon contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because builders in Waddon typically 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 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 Waddon or who has acted in the same development.
