Recently asked questions about conveyancing in Whitstable

I decided to go with a local solicitor for our conveyancing in Whitstable recently. Going through the official terms of business I noteI am liable for fees even if our purchase doesn't happen. Should I go with them or select an internet conveyancing company promising no-sale-no-fee conveyancing in Whitstable?

It is usually a trade off in that if "No Sale No Fee" is offered then the conveyancing charges will generally be more expensive to offset the conveyances that fail to complete. Also remember that such offerings tend not to protect you from expenses by way of example Whitstable conveyancing search costs.

How does conveyancing in Whitstable differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Whitstable approach us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Whitstable usually acquire 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 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Whitstable or who has acted in the same development.
