How does conveyancing in Shrewton differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Shrewton come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Shrewton usually purchase 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Shrewton or who has acted in the same development.
Due to the encouragement of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Shrewton ahead of retaining conveyancers. I have been informed that there is a flying freehold element to the house. Our surveyor advised that some banks may refuse to give a loan on this type of property.
It depends who your proposed lender is. Bank of Scotland has different instructions for example to Halifax. Should you wish to call us we can check with the relevant bank. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Shrewton.

As with many service providers, often input from connections can be worth their weight in gold. But there are many parties with a keen interest in a conveyancing matter; estate agents, mortgage brokers and mortgage companies might all suggest conveyancers to choose. Sometimes these conveyancers might be known to one of the organisations as one of the best in their field, but sometimes there is an underlying commercial relationship behind the recommendation. You are free to appoint your preferred lawyer. However, bear in mind that the majority of banks specify a panel list of lawyers you are obliged to use for the lender related work in your house move.
