How does conveyancing in Newton Abbot differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Newton Abbot contact us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because house builders in Newton Abbot typically 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 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 used to new build conveyancing in Newton Abbot or who has acted in the same development.

The suggested premium range that we have given is a general guide to costs for renewing a lease, but we cannot give you a more accurate figure without more comprehensive investigations.

There are numerous houses in Newton Abbot on unadopted lanes. I am buying such a property. What would be the advantages and disadvantages of purchasing a residence on a private road?

Newton Abbot conveyancing practices will be used to dealing propertieson unadopted roads. Your solicitor will investigate title to find any rights or liabilities. It is possible that there is a management company (wholly owned by residents) that proprietors make annual contributions for the upkeep of the road. Where there is one, the road should be maintained and look better than council owned.
