How does conveyancing in Crabtree differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Crabtree approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Crabtree typically purchase 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 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 Crabtree or who has acted in the same development.

We're first time buyers - agreed a price, but the estate agent has warned us that the seller will only go ahead if we instruct the agent's recommended solicitors as they need an ‘expedited deal’. My instinct tells me that we should use a local solicitor accustomed to conveyancing in Crabtree

We suspect that the seller is unaware of this request. Should the seller want ‘a quick sale', turning down a motivated buyer is counter productive. Avoid the agents and go straight to the sellers and make the point that (a)you are genuine buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you do not need to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you will continue to instruct your preferred Crabtree conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will provide their estate agent a commission or hit his conveyancing targets demanded by head office.
