How does conveyancing in Petersfield differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Petersfield come to us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because house builders in Petersfield typically purchase 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 Petersfield or who has acted in the same development.

Given that I will soon spend over three hundred thousand on a property in Petersfield I wish to have a conversation with the lawyer concerning thehome move in advance of instructing the firm. Is this something that you can arrange?

This is something that we encourage - it is our preference to talk to you we do not take any clients on without you liaising with the lawyer due to be carrying out your property ownership legalities in Petersfield.There is no ‘factory style conveyancing’ - every client is unique individual, not a file number. The law firms that we put you in touch with believe that the fees you are quoted for your conveyancing in Petersfield should be the figure that you end up paying.

We're novice buyers - had an offer accepted, but the property agent has warned us that the owners will only issue a contract if we appoint the agent's chosen lawyers as they are insisting on a ‘quick sale’. We would rather use a family solicitor with experience of conveyancing in Petersfield

We suspect that the owner is not behind this ultimatum. If they desire ‘a quick sale', taking such a hostile approach to a serious buyer is likely to cause more damage than good. Try to communicate with the sellers directly and make the point that (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with mortgage lined up © you are unencumbered (d) you wish to move quickly (e)but you are going to appoint your preferred Petersfield conveyancing solicitors - not the ones that will give the negotiator at the agency a commission or meet his conveyancing thresholds demanded by head office.
