How does conveyancing in Wisbech differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build residence in Wisbech approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because developers in Wisbech typically 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 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Wisbech or who has acted in the same development.
Yesterday I discovered that there is a flying freehold issue on a property I put an offer in a fortnight ago in what should have been a quick, chain free conveyancing. Wisbech is the location of the property. Can you shed any light on this issue?
Flying freeholds in Wisbech are unusual but are more likely to exist in relation to terraced houses. Even where you use a solicitor outside Wisbech you would need to get your solicitor to go through the deeds diligently. Your bank may require your conveyancing solicitor to take out an indemnity policy. Some of the more diligent conveyancing solicitors in Wisbech may ascertain that this is not enough and that the deeds be re-written to give you the most up to date legal protection. If so, the next door neighbour also had to sign up to the revised deeds.It is possible that your lender will not accept the situation so the sooner you find out the better. You should also check with your insurance broker as to whether they will insure a flying freehold property.

Am I best advised to appoint a Wisbech conveyancing solicitor in close proximity to the house I am hoping to buy? We have a good friend who can deal with the conveyancing but his firm is located a couple of hundredmiles drive away.
The primary upside of using a high street Wisbech conveyancing firm is that you can attend the office to sign paperwork, deliver your ID and apply pressure on them where appropriate. Having local Wisbech know how is a plus. That being said it's more important to get someone that will do a good and efficient job. If if people you trust instructed your friend and on the whole were happy that must outweigh using an unfamiliar Wisbech conveyancing solicitor just because they are round the corner.
