You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Altrincham and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists plenty of room for confrontation between you and others involved in the legal transfer of property. E.g., the vendor, selling agent and even potentially the lender.

It has been 2 months following my purchase conveyancing in Altrincham concluded. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £180,000. Why the discrepancy?

The price paid figure is taken from the application to register the purchase. It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the asset from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price. You can report an error in the price paid figure using the LR online form. In most cases errors result from typos so at first glance the figure. Do report it so they can double check and advise.

How does conveyancing in Altrincham differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Altrincham approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because new home sellers in Altrincham tend to 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 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 used to new build conveyancing in Altrincham or who has acted in the same development.
