How does conveyancing in Whitworth differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Whitworth contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is built. This is because house builders in Whitworth 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 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Whitworth or who has acted in the same development.

Am I best advised to choose a Whitworth conveyancing lawyer in close proximity to the house I am purchasing? I have an old university friend who can perform the conveyancing however they are based 400miles drive away.

The primary upside of using a local Whitworth conveyancing practice is that you can pop in to sign documents, hand in your identification documents and apply pressure on them if necessary. They will also have local knowledge which is a benefit. However it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If you know people who instructed your friend and the majority were content that should surpass using an unknown Whitworth conveyancing lawyer just because they are round the corner.

My conveyancing in Whitworth is completing this Friday, yet the couple I am buying from has asked to move out the next day at noon. Can I accept this?

You can't complete on a Saturday because the bank systems aren't operational.
