Having read lots of house buying guides, I note that they all recommend that you should get your house surveyed prior to buying it. When I asked my local Long Itchington solicitor - who is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel - on this she said they don't do this and I need to contract an independent surveyor. Is that normal?
Clydesdale will need an independent valuation of the property. Your lawyer will not arrange this. Usually Clydesdale will appoint their own surveyor to do this, and you will have to pay for it. Remember that this is a valuation for mortgage purposes and not a survey. You may wish to consider appointing your own Long Itchington surveyor to carry out a survey or prepare a home buyers report on the property. It is up to you to satisfy yourself that the property is structurally sound before you buy it. If the survey or report reveals that building work is needed, you should tell your solicitor. You may wish to renegotiate with the seller.
Our offer on a house in Long Itchington has been agreed to, but there is a chain. The sellers have offered on a flat, however it’s not been accepted yet, and have viewings of other apartments booked. I have instructed a high street conveyancing solicitor in Long Itchington. What do I do now? When do I get the mortgage application with TSB going?
It is normal to have apprehensions where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to be too out of pocket prematurely (mortgage application is approx £1k, then valuation, Long Itchington conveyancing search costs, etc). The first course of action is to check that your conveyancer is on the TSB approved list. Regarding the next steps this very much depends on the specifics of your transaction, desire for this property and on the state of the market. In a rising market some home buyers will apply for the mortgage with TSB and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they ask their conveyancer to proceed with the conveyancing in Long Itchington.
How does conveyancing in Long Itchington differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Long Itchington come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is completed. This is because house builders in Long Itchington 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Long Itchington or who has acted in the same development.
