How does conveyancing in Barnstaple differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Barnstaple contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because new home sellers in Barnstaple tend to 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 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 used to new build conveyancing in Barnstaple or who has acted in the same development.

My father-in-law mentioned that when selecting a conveyancing lawyer they need approved by your bank. This is my first home move but I have an offer in principle via Birmingham Midhshires and I already have a local conveyancing solicitor in Barnstaple in place. Does Halifax need an approved solicitor to be used? Does a directory of approved conveyancers even exist so I can appoint a conveyancing solicitor in Barnstaple?

You need to use a solicitor that is on the Halifax panel. Simply call your chosen Barnstaple conveyancing solicitor and ask if they are on the Halifax panel. If they are not approved you have numerous choices available to you here:

  • Complete the deal with your preferred Barnstaple property lawyer but Halifax will need to retain a property lawyer from their conveyancing panel. This will result in additional charges and probable interruption.
  • Appoint a fresh solicitor to act in the purchase, not forgetting to check that they are on the Halifax conveyancing panel.
  • Appeal to your solicitor to attempt to join the lender panel.
