I have been referred to a conveyancing solicitor in Okehampton. I need to find out if they are on the Godiva Mortgages Ltd conveyancing panel. Can you help?
You should phone the lawyer and enquire if they are on the lender panel. Alternatively you should get in touch with Godiva Mortgages Ltd who may be able to help.
How does conveyancing in Okehampton differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Okehampton come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Okehampton typically buy 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 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 Okehampton or who has acted in the same development.

You can make a request of HM Land Registry to hide the amount paid entry however the answer will be a No.
