Forgive me if this question is silly but I am new to the home moving as a 1st time purchaser of a ground floor flat in Tyne And Wear. Do I collect the keys to the premises on completion from my lawyer? If this is the case, I will find a local conveyancing solicitor in Tyne And Wear?

There is no need to visit the lawyers office on the day of completion. Conveyancing lawyers for you will transfer the completion advance to the vendor’s lawyers, and shortly after the monies have arrived, you will be invited to pick up the keys from the Estate Agents and start moving into the property.

Your conveyancer should review the registered title as conveyancing in Tyne And Wear will occasionally reveal restrictions in the title deeds which prohibit certain works or need the consent of a 3rd party.

I am the sole beneficiary of my late father’s estate with all property in now in my sole name, including the my former home in Tyne And Wear. The Tyne And Wear property was put into my name in December. I now wish to sell up. I do know about the CML six month 'rule', which means that my property ownership could be regarded the same way as though I had purchased the house in December. Will no one buy the property for half a year?

The CML handbook requires conveyancers to: "report to us immediately if the owner or registered proprietor has been registered for less than six months." Technically you may be impacted by that. How sensible a view lenders take of it, depend on the lender as this clause primarily exists to capture subsales or the wholesaling and assigning of properties.

How does conveyancing in Tyne And Wear differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Tyne And Wear approach us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because house builders in Tyne And Wear typically 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 Tyne And Wear or who has acted in the same development.
