How does conveyancing in Lyme Regis differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Lyme Regis contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Lyme Regis tend to purchase the site, 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 Lyme Regis or who has acted in the same development.

Due to the input of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a house in Lyme Regis ahead of retaining conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold overhang to the house. My surveyor advised that some banks tend refuse to give a loan on a flying freehold property.

If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are accustomed to dealing with flying freeholds in Lyme Regis.
