Conveyancing In Wycombe Marsh Q & A's
If I want to build an extension or do other works once I move in, can I get a builder to visit to give me a quote?
There is nothing stopping you trying to organise this, so long as you set a date and time that’s acceptable to the vendor (or via their estate agent if they are unable to be there) and try to establish how long the process will take, so that this can be booked in.
This becomes particularly critical following a surveyor’s inspection where remedial works are identified and recommended. You can use the quote from the builder as a renegotiation tool on the asking price, if the work required is going to be particularly costly. If you decide to go down this route, it must be done before exchange of contracts (where you’re committing to the sale price) and you should inform your solicitor if you’ve had private discussions and agreements with the vendor over price for inclusion in the terms of the contract.
Which factors help with getting a fast conveyancing process?
Finding a proactive conveyancer is essential to buying faster. Furthermore, there are numerous things you, as the buyer, can do. These include:
- quickly completing and return any forms
- confirming your mortgage offer
- pushing the conveyancer to begin enquiries as soon as possible
