I have recentlybeen informed that Stirling Law have been shut down. They conducted my conveyancing in Irlam and Cadishead for a purchase of a freehold house 9 months ago. How can I check that the property is in my name in the name of the former proprietor?

How does conveyancing in Irlam and Cadishead differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Irlam and Cadishead come to 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 Irlam and Cadishead usually buy 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 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 Irlam and Cadishead or who has acted in the same development.
