How does conveyancing in Margate differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Margate approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because house builders in Margate tend to purchase 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 conveyancers 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 Margate or who has acted in the same development.

Almost all premises in Margate should appear. Have you attempted a search with simply the postcode. Usually it will mention all the residences within that postcode. Where recorded it will show up with a title number. If they bought back in the 70’s it's conceivable it may be unregistered. The address could still be revealed but with the title number shown 'na'. In this scenario you will need to locate the original title papers which might be with your parent’s bank.
