How does conveyancing in Altrincham differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Altrincham approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because house builders in Altrincham tend to acquire 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 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 used to new build conveyancing in Altrincham or who has acted in the same development.
I was recommended by a number of estate agents in Altrincham to find a property lawyer on your site. What’s the financial inducement for Estate Agents to promote your lawyers rather than alternative conveyancing organisations?
We refuse to make any referral fee for directing people our way. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as members of the public would think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
