I am buying a property mortgage free in Queensbury. I have been living for the previous 15 years in Queensbury. Conveyancing searches are a lot of money. Given that I know the road and vicinity intimately should I not bother getting the solicitor to do all the conveyancing searches?

If you not getting a mortgage, then all but one or two of the Queensbury conveyancing searches are non-obligatory. Your lawyer will ’encourage you, perhaps strongly, that you should have searches carried out, but he is duty bound to take that path of advice.

How does conveyancing in Queensbury differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Queensbury come to us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because developers in Queensbury usually acquire 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 property lawyers 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 Queensbury or who has acted in the same development.

Practice notes are not legal advice issued by the Law Society and is not to be regarded as the only standard of good practice a conveyancing solicitor should adhere to. The Practice Note does, however, constitute the Law Society’s perspective of acceptable practice for publicising conveyancing charges, and accordingly it’s a recommended read for any solicitor or conveyancer in Queensbury or across England and Wales.
