How does conveyancing in Bedford differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Bedford contact us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because developers in Bedford usually 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 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Bedford or who has acted in the same development.

I have been advised by many family members to expect six to eight weeks for Bedford conveyancing to complete.This was four weeks ago. The draft contract was only forwarded from the vendors solicitor a few days ago so does the time start running now?

Don't rely on counting down any 6-8 week suggested period. Answering precisely how how many weeks Bedford conveyancing will take is nigh on impossible. Without fail every property will have it’s own unique set of issues. Accordingly your conveyancing practitioner should find it difficult to accurately predict the length of time it will take to complete your conveyancing in Bedford.
