Just contacted my conveyancing lawyer in Ilford who conducted the legals two years ago requesting a conveyancing estimate based on the same type of home move (a leasehold premises and a freehold premises) of almost identical values with a loan from Britannia. It looks as though am now being charged twice the amount. Should I hunt for an alternative property lawyer?

How does conveyancing in Ilford differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Ilford approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because new home sellers in Ilford tend to buy 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 Ilford or who has acted in the same development.
