three months have gone by following my purchase conveyancing in Bedfont concluded. I have checked the Land Registry site which shows that I paid £200,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?

How does conveyancing in Bedfont differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Bedfont contact us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because builders in Bedfont 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 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Bedfont or who has acted in the same development.

Flying freeholds in Bedfont are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Bedfont you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Bedfont may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
