When does exchange of contracts happen for residential conveyancing in Earlswood and do I need to be at the conveyancers office?
Where you are round the corner to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Earlswood you are welcome to attend to sign the paperwork. However, the firms we work with provide a countrywide conveyancing service and provide as equally comprehensive and professional a job for you when dealing with you digitally. The executing of the sale agreement is not when everything is set in stone. A signed contract is necessary for the firm to address the formalities when the time is right, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where an extended "chain" is in play, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Earlswood)to be in the office at the appropriate time.
I'm the only beneficiary of my late father’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the house in Earlswood. Conveyancing formalities meant that the Land Registry date was in June. I plan to dispose of the house. I understand that there is a CML six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be treated the same way as though I had purchased the property in June. Will no one buy the property for half a year?
The CML handbook mandates conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you might be affected by that. How practical a view lenders take of it, depend on the lender as this clause primarily exists to pick up on subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.
I have instructed a Earlswood conveyancer having made sure that they are on the Virgin Money conveyancing panel. Does my lawyer arrange the survey of the property?
Virgin Money will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Virgin Money will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Earlswood surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.

How does conveyancing in Earlswood differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Earlswood approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished.

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.
