How does conveyancing in Great Linford differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Great Linford approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is built. This is because builders in Great Linford typically acquire 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 used to new build conveyancing in Great Linford or who has acted in the same development.

My wife and I purchased a leasehold house in Great Linford. Conveyancing and Coventry Building Society mortgage organised. A letter has just been received from someone claiming to own the freehold. Attached was a ground rent demand for rent dating back to 1995. The conveyancing practitioner in Great Linford who acted for me is not around. Any advice?
