I have recentlybecome aware that Action Conveyancing have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Esher and Claygate for a purchase of a freehold house 18 months ago. How can I be sure that the property is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?

How does conveyancing in Esher and Claygate differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Esher and Claygate contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Esher and Claygate tend to buy 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Esher and Claygate or who has acted in the same development.
