How does conveyancing in Barnard Castle differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Barnard Castle come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because house builders in Barnard Castle typically buy 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 Barnard Castle or who has acted in the same development.

I decided to have a survey carried out on a property in Barnard Castle ahead of instructing solicitors. I have been told that there is a flying freehold element to the house. Our surveyor advised that some mortgage companies will not issue a mortgage on this type of property.

It varies from the lender to lender. Bank of Scotland has different instructions for example to Halifax. If you call us we can investigate further with the relevant bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Barnard Castle. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.
