Can conveyancing in Didsbury to be completed in less than two weeks?
Where the seller is applying a tight deadline to complete it is highly recommended that your conveyancer is familiar with the area as they will have local connections and insight. It is possible that they could have transacted otherhouses in the same road. You would be best advised to use a Didsbury conveyancing lawyer. Second, check that the lawyer is on the lender panel. It is claimed that nearly one in five of Didsbury conveyancing transactions are delayed or jeopardised after discovering a purchaser’s conveyancer was not on their banks panel. In many cases this discovery resulted in the home move being held up by an average of three weeks. It is said that this issue impacts approximately one hundred thousand home moves annually. Almost all Didsbury conveyancing practices can not act for certain banks so do check as early as possible.

How does conveyancing in Didsbury differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Didsbury approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because builders in Didsbury tend to 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 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 Didsbury or who has acted in the same development.
