How does conveyancing in Knutsford differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Knutsford approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because developers in Knutsford 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 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 Knutsford or who has acted in the same development.
Due to the advice of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Knutsford prior to appointing conveyancers. I have been told that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. The surveyor advised that some lenders will not give a loan on this type of home.
It varies from the lender to lender. Lloyds has different instructions for example to Birmingham Midshires. Should you wish to call us we can investigate further with the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Knutsford. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Knutsford to see if the conveyancing will be more expensive.
I have been pointed in your direction by two or three local estate agents in Knutsford to select a solicitor on your site. Is there a financial upside for Estate Agents to market your services ahead of another?
We don’t make any referral fee for directing people in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission as members of the public would think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
