How does conveyancing in Whimple differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Whimple come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is constructed. This is because developers in Whimple tend to 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 used to new build conveyancing in Whimple or who has acted in the same development.

I’m about to sell my 2 bed apartment in Whimple. Conveyancing solicitors are to be appointed soon, however I have recently had a half-yearly maintenance charge invoice – should I leave it to the buyer to sort out?
It best that you pay the service charge as you normally would because all rents and maintenance invoices should be allotted as part of the financial calculations for completion monies, so you will be reimbursed by the purchaser for the period running from after the completion date to the next payment date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer until the service charges have been paid and are up to date, so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date. This will smooth the conveyancing process.
