Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Ashby de la Zouch approach us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because builders in Ashby de la Zouch typically buy the site, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties.

It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Ashby de la Zouch or who has acted in the same development.
