How does conveyancing in Totterdown differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Totterdown contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because builders in Totterdown usually buy the land, 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 used to new build conveyancing in Totterdown or who has acted in the same development.

I have been advised by various family members that it may take 6-8 weeks for Totterdown conveyancing to complete.This was 3 ago. The property information was only forwarded to my solicitor a couple of days ago so now does it countdown?

Six to eight weeks is a very rough timescale. Addressing accurately how how many weeks Totterdown conveyancing will take is nigh on impossible. Every Totterdown conveyancing transaction will have it’s bespoke set of concerns. Accordingly your lawyer should be unwilling to accurately predict how long it will take to conclude conveyancing in Totterdown.
