You should not exchange unless you have been advised to do so by your conveyancer. A precondition to being on a lender panel is to comply with the UK Finance Lenders’ Handbook provisions. The CML Conveyancing Handbook requires that your lawyer have the appropriate Disclosure of Incentive form completed by the developer and accepted by your lender.

How does conveyancing in Stanmore differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Stanmore come to us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Stanmore typically purchase 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 conveyancing solicitors 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 Stanmore or who has acted in the same development.

Due to the guidance of my in-laws I had a survey completed on a property in Stanmore ahead of retaining conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold aspect to the property. Our surveyor advised that some lenders tend refuse to issue a loan on this type of property.

It depends who your proposed lender is. Lloyds has different requirements for example to Halifax. If you call us we can look into this further with the relevant lender. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can help as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Stanmore. Conveyancing may be slightly more expensive based on your lender's requirements.

My father has urged me to instruct his conveyancing solicitors in Stanmore. Should I use them?

Much as we are happy to recommend a Stanmore conveyancing lawyer it’s preferable to find a conveyancing solicitor is to seek guidance from friends or relatives who have experience in using the conveyancer that you are contemplating using.
