2 months have elapsed since my purchase conveyancing in North Shields and Tynemouth took place. I have checked the Land Registry website which shows that I paid £175,000 when infact I paid £170,000. Why the discrepancy?

It is the figure included in the Transfer (the legal deed which transfers the residence from one person to the other) and referred to as the 'consideration' or purchase price.

How does conveyancing in North Shields and Tynemouth differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in North Shields and Tynemouth contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because new home sellers in North Shields and Tynemouth usually buy 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 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 North Shields and Tynemouth or who has acted in the same development.
