About to purchase apartment in Purfleet. I have received an online quote from a licenced conveyancer, which states: "There will be no charge for dealing with the Building Society if you are obtaining a mortgage". I take this to mean that there will be no additional fee if the solicitor is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel. I wanted to make sure it means there will be no additional fees for dealing with the mortgage.
They are simply saying that the cost for acting for the lender is included in the fee being quoted. It is worth you checking that the Purfleet conveyancing practitioner is on the Clydesdale conveyancing panel.
At last I have had an offer on a flat in Purfleet agreed to, but there is a chain. The owners have placed an offer on a flat, but it’s not yet tied up, and are looking at other flats in the pipeline. I have instructed a high street conveyancing solicitor in Purfleet. What should be my next step? When should I get the mortgage application with Nottingham started?
It is normal to have anxieties where there is a chain as you are unlikely to want to incur expenses prematurely (home loan application is in the region of £1k, then survey, Purfleet conveyancing search fees, etc). First, you should ensure that your property lawyer is on the Nottingham conveyancing panel. As to the next steps this very much dictated by the uniqueness of your transaction, motivation for this property and on the state of the market. In a hot market the majority of purchasers will apply for the mortgage with Nottingham and arrange for the valuation and only if it comes back ok would they request their property lawyer to press on with searches.
How does conveyancing in Purfleet differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Purfleet approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because builders in Purfleet tend to 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 used to new build conveyancing in Purfleet or who has acted in the same development.
