How does conveyancing in Openshaw differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Openshaw approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because developers in Openshaw 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 Openshaw or who has acted in the same development.

I've recently found out that there is a flying freehold issue on a house I put an offer in two weeks back in what should have been a quick, no chain conveyancing. Openshaw is the location of the property. Is there any advice you can impart?

Flying freeholds in Openshaw are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in Openshaw you must be sure that your lawyer goes through the deeds very carefully. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Openshaw may determine that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.
