It is 10 years ago since I acquired my home in Colindale. Conveyancing lawyers have just been instructed on the sale but I can't track down the title deeds. Will this jeopardise the sale?

You need not be too concerned. First there is a possibility that the deeds will be retained by the mortgage company or they may be in the possession of the conveyancers who handled the purchase. Secondly the likelihood is that the land will be recorded at the land registry and you will be able to prove you are the registered owner by your conveyancing lawyers obtaining current official copies of the land registers. Nearly all conveyancing in Colindale involves registered property but in the unlikely event that your home is unregistered it adds to the complexity but is not insurmountable.

How does conveyancing in Colindale differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Colindale approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because new home sellers in Colindale typically buy 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 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 Colindale or who has acted in the same development.
