How does conveyancing in Cambridgeshire differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Cambridgeshire come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because house builders in Cambridgeshire typically acquire the real estate, 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 Cambridgeshire or who has acted in the same development.
I am in the process of purchasing my 1st house in Cambridgeshire. Conveyancing lawyer already appointed. The broker pointed out that a survey is not needed as the house was only constructed in 1997.
The bare minimum you need a Home Buyer's Report. As the property was built over a decade ago the property will be without a warranty, so you don't want to take a risk. Where a property of this age shows no signs of defects a Home Buyer's report may be enough. The report should highlight any obvious problems and suggest further investigation if appropriate. If there are any indications of material issues obtain a comprehensive Building Survey from the beginning.
