When can the exchange of contracts take place for sale conveyancing in Ryhope and do I need to attend the conveyancers branch?

Where you are near to one of the conveyancing solicitors in Ryhope you are welcome to attend to sign the paperwork. That being said, the firms we work with supply a nationwide conveyancing service and give as equally detailed and professional a job for you when communicating with you by post or email. The executing of the property agreement is not the critical part. A signed contract is necessary for the solicitor to officially exchange when the time is right, which will usually be very shortly after signing. The procedure is is usually a five minute process, although where a lengthy "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Ryhope)to be in the office available at the end of the phone to exchange contracts.

Me and my brother own a 4 bedroom Edwardian house in Ryhope. Conveyancing practitioner acted for me and Yorkshire Building Society. I happened to do a free search for it on the Land Registry database and there are two entries: the first freehold, the second leasehold under the matching property. Is it worth asking Yorkshire Building Society to clarify?

You should review the Freehold register you have again and check the Charges Register as there may be mention of a lease. The best way to be sure that you are also the registered owner of the leasehold and freehold title as well is to check (£3). It is not completely unheard of in Ryhope and other areas of the country and poses no real issues for owners other than when they mortgage they have to account for both freehold and leasehold interests when dealing with purchasers. You can also question the position with your conveyancing solicitor who carried out the work.

How does conveyancing in Ryhope differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Ryhope contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because builders in Ryhope typically 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 Ryhope or who has acted in the same development.
