Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Whetstone

I was informed today by my lender that my Whetstone the law firm I have appointed is not on the lender Conveyancing panel. How can I check?

It's also easier, as otherwise you'd have to deal with two solicitors for the same conveyancing matter.

How does conveyancing in Whetstone differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Whetstone contact us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because developers in Whetstone typically acquire 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Whetstone or who has acted in the same development.

Are there any specific advantages to instructing a high street solicitor in Whetstone

Plenty of house movers in Whetstone decide on using a nearby high street property lawyer so that they can pop into the firm’s offices if they have concerns, and to sign mortgage deeds rather taking the chance of depending on the Royal Mail.

One could argue that there is a distinct benefit when using a property lawyer nearby to a house you are planning to purchase, due to the familiarity of the region and potential local concerns - yet this is debatable. Most conveyancers undertaking their communications via the web and could be based anywhere.
