There is no denying the statistics, the start of a New Year always acts as a catalyst to some people to take stock of their lives, resulting in many making changes, whether it’s a new job, new partner or a new house.
House prices have remained steady over the seasonal period, according to online property portal, Rightmove, and January has witnessed a surge in demand on the house-hunting website in the first two weeks. Rightmove reported that visits to the website, in the first week of 2016, were up 16% on the same period in 2015 and so we can expect a fairly healthy start to 2016 in terms of the property market.
If you choose to be part of this New Year surge and have found your next home then you are going to need a good conveyancer. Whether it’s new build or a character property, a good conveyancer can save you a lot of money and a lot of stress.
Buying a house or land is a very complicated process with lots of administration involved. Environmental surveys need to be ordered, deeds checked, boundaries confirmed, checks on whether the property is registered leasehold or freehold etc. There is a lot to go wrong and any oversight could lead to you owning a property which may be involved in costly legal disputes over boundaries or that is due to be situated next to a new road or development or even that the seller did not have the legal right to sell in the first place.
The conveyancing process starts after an offer has been made and accepted for a property, and solicitors’ details have been exchanged by the two parties. Don’t scrimp on conveyancing! It may be cheaper but it’s time-consuming and risky if you lack the necessary expertise.
