How does conveyancing in Stoke Bishop differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Stoke Bishop come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because builders in Stoke Bishop usually 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 used to new build conveyancing in Stoke Bishop or who has acted in the same development.
I opted to have a survey carried out on a property in Stoke Bishop ahead of instructing conveyancers. I have been advised that there is a flying freehold overhang to the property. Our surveyor has said that some mortgage companies may refuse to issue a mortgage on such a premises.
It varies from the lender to lender. Santander has different instructions for example to Nationwide. If you call us we can check via the relevant mortgage company. If you lender is happy to lend one our lawyers can assist as they are used to dealing with flying freeholds in Stoke Bishop. Conveyancing can be more complicated and therefore you should check with your conveyancing solicitor in Stoke Bishop to see if the conveyancing will be more expensive.
I was advised by numerous selling agents in Stoke Bishop to locate a conveyancer using your seach tool. Is there a financial incentive for Estate Agents to offer your services over alternative conveyancing organisations?
We refuse to offer any referral fee for directing people in our direction. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission as a client could think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why am I not getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
