How does conveyancing in Forest Row differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Forest Row approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because developers in Forest Row 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 Forest Row or who has acted in the same development.

My husband and I are new to the buying process - had an offer accepted, but the estate agent has warned us that the vendor will only proceed if we use the agent's preferred solicitors as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a local solicitor who is familiar with conveyancing in Forest Row
We suspect that the seller is unaware of this ultimatum. Should the owner desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious buyer is counter productive. Bypass the agents and go straight to the sellers and make the point that (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you do not need to sell (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you will continue to appoint your preferred Forest Row conveyancing firm - rather thanthe ones that will provide their estate agent a commission or meet his conveyancing thresholds set by corporate headquarters.
I purchased a flat in Forest Row last 27/9/2021 and to date it is still not registered with HMLR. It was part of a new estate and my conveyancer told me that it can take twelve months to complete the registration formalities. I have contacted the Land Registry directly and they say that the initial application was cancelled due to failure to reply to requisitions. What can I do?
It is your property lawyer that you must turn to here in order to satisfy any concerns which have been raised as part of the registration formalities for your Forest Row property. Normal Forest Row conveyancing practice includes an undertaking on the part of the vendor’s solicitor that they will assist in resolving any requirements raised by HMLR so it may be a case of taking action to enforce that undertaking if necessary.
