Any savings you would make would be limited to the Rochdale conveyancing searches. Your solicitor is required to do the vast majority of work - money laundering, correspond with the sellers lawyer, SDLT submission, register the ownership etc. You might save a bit for them not having to register a mortgage however it will not be meaningful.
How does conveyancing in Rochdale differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Rochdale contact us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Rochdale usually acquire 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 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 Rochdale or who has acted in the same development.
I decided to have a survey carried out on a property in Rochdale ahead of instructing conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold aspect to the house. My surveyor advised that some banks will refuse to grant a mortgage on such a house.
