How does conveyancing in St Columb differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in St Columb come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because house builders in St Columb tend to buy 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 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 used to new build conveyancing in St Columb or who has acted in the same development.

Even though you don't necessarily need a conveyancing solicitor in St Columb you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently.

If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold premises.
