How does conveyancing in Kirkheaton differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Kirkheaton approach us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because builders in Kirkheaton usually 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 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 Kirkheaton or who has acted in the same development.

I have chosen a Kirkheaton conveyancing solicitor for our home move (FTB’s) and have noticed in the terms and conditions that they are not overseen by the FCA. Am I right to be worried or is that usually the case with conveyancing practitioner?

We can't see why they should be. Most property lawyer don't lend money. They should be regulated by the SRA, who have strict stipulations in relation to funds sitting on client account.
