How does conveyancing in Poole differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Poole contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because builders in Poole tend to buy the land, 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 Poole or who has acted in the same development.
Is there a difference between surveying and conveyancing in Poole?
Conveyancing - in Poole or elsewhere - is the legal term given to transferring legal title of property from one person to another. It involves the investigation of the title. Whether buying or selling, you should be aware of anything affecting the property such as proposals by government departments, illegal buildings, or outstanding rates. The conveyancer should conduct the appropriate searches and inquiries on the property. Surveying relates to the structure of a property itself. A surveyor will look at a house, flat and any outbuildings you are buying and will help you find out about the condition of the building and, if there are problems, give you a powerful reason for reducing the price down or asking the vendor to fix the problems prior to you move in.
