How does conveyancing in Easingwold differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Easingwold contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because builders in Easingwold typically purchase the land, 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 Easingwold or who has acted in the same development.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in last month in what was supposed to be a quick, no chain conveyancing. Easingwold is the location of the property. What do you suggest?
Flying freeholds in Easingwold are not the norm but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Easingwold you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds very carefully. Your lender may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Easingwold may decide that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
I was recommended by a number of property agents in Easingwold to find a property lawyer using your seach tool. What’s the financial inducement for Estate Agents to recommend your site ahead of alternative conveyancing organisations?
We don’t make any referral fee for directing people our way. We thought it would be too underhand a fee because a client could think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
