Me and my brother own a terraced Edwardian house in Warsash. Conveyancing solicitor acted for me and Barclays Direct. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and I saw two entries: one for freehold, the second leasehold with the matching address. If a house is not a freehold shouldn't I have been informed?

How does conveyancing in Warsash differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Warsash contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because new home sellers in Warsash typically buy 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 property lawyers 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 Warsash or who has acted in the same development.
