My wife and I are soon to exchange on the purchase of a property in Smethwick but as a result of damage from some water damage at the property I have was able negotiate compensation from the vendor of three thousand pounds by way of a reduction in the price. I had intended this to be dealt with as part of the conveyancing process but Bank of Ireland will not permit this. Should they have been notified?

Any lawyer being on a Bank of Ireland conveyancing panel is duty bound to inform Bank of Ireland of any amendments to the purchase price. If you prohibit your conveyancer to report the reduction to Bank of Ireland then they would have to discontinue acting for you. In addition, Bank of Ireland and you would have to appoint a new property lawyer for your conveyancing in Smethwick.

How does conveyancing in Smethwick differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build property in Smethwick approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because new home sellers in Smethwick 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 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 Smethwick or who has acted in the same development.
