How does conveyancing in Rhiwbina differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Rhiwbina come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because house builders in Rhiwbina tend to purchase 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 Rhiwbina or who has acted in the same development.

Having had my offer accepted I require leasehold conveyancing in Rhiwbina. Before I get started I require certainty as to the remaining lease term.
Assuming the lease is registered - and almost all are in Rhiwbina - then the leasehold title will always include the short particulars of the lease, namely the date; the term; and the original parties. From a conveyancing perspective such details then enable any prospective buyer and lender to confirm that any lease they are looking at is the one relevant to that title. For any other purpose, such as confirming how long the term was granted for and calculating what is left, then the register should be sufficient on it's own.

I have selected a Rhiwbina conveyancing solicitor for our home move (first time buyers) and have noticed in the terms and conditions that they are not covered by the FCA. Need I be concerned or is that standard with lawyer?
