When can the exchange of contracts take place for purchase conveyancing in Sneinton and am I required to be at the lawyers branch?
If you are round the corner to our conveyancing solicitors in Sneinton you are welcome to attend to sign contracts. However, the lender approved solicitors we work with supply countrywide coverage for conveyancing and give just as comprehensive and professional a job for you when communicating with you electronically. The signing of the property agreement is not when everything is set in stone. Signing on the dotted line is necessary for the conveyancer to officially exchange at the appropriate time, which is ordinarily shortly after signing. The exchange process is nowadays normally dealt with by telephone and can be very rapid, although where a long "chain" is in the mix, since the process requires the relevant party's solicitor (not necessarily a conveyancing solicitor in Sneinton)to be in the office at the appropriate time.

There is nothing unique about conveyancing in Sneinton registration formalities. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timeframes can vary depending on who lodges the application, whether there are errors and if the Land registry communicate with any 3rd parties. At present approximately 80% of submission are completed within 12 days but some can be subject to extensive delays. Registration is effected after the purchaser has moved in to the premises therefore 'speed' is not usually primary concern but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your conveyancer could contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
How does conveyancing in Sneinton differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Sneinton approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Sneinton typically 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Sneinton or who has acted in the same development.
