As far as conveyancing in Winslow registration is no quicker or slower than the rest of the country. As opposed to being determined by geographic area, timescales can differ subject to the party submitting the application, whether it is in order and if the Land registry communicate with any other persons or bodies. At present approximately 80% of submission are fully dealt with within two weeks but some can be subject to extensive delays. Registration occurs after the buyer has moved in to the premises therefore an expedited registration is not always top priority but if there is a degree of urgency associated with the registration then you or your solicitor should contact the land registry and explain the circumstances.
How does conveyancing in Winslow differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Winslow come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is finished. This is because new home sellers in Winslow 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 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 Winslow or who has acted in the same development.
