I have recentlybeen informed that Wolstenholmes have closed. They carried out my conveyancing in Oughtibridge for a purchase of a leasehold apartment 9 months ago. How can I establish that my home is registered correctly in the name of the previous owner?
The easiest method to see if the premises is in your name, you can make a search of the land registry (£3.00). You can either do this yourself or ask a law firm to do this for you. If you are not registered you can seek help from one of a number of Oughtibridge conveyancing specialists.
How does conveyancing in Oughtibridge differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Oughtibridge contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because new home sellers in Oughtibridge usually 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 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 used to new build conveyancing in Oughtibridge or who has acted in the same development.
