Most buyers of new build property in Aylesford contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is completed. This is because house builders in Aylesford usually acquire the real estate, 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 conveyancing solicitors 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.

My partner and I about to exchange buying a property in Aylesford but as a result of wreckage from the recent storms I have negotiated compensation from the seller of five thousand pounds by way of a adjustment in the price. I had intended this to be addressed as part of the conveyancing process but my bank will not permit this. Should they have been approached?
The conveyancing practitioner listed on the bank conveyancing panel is required to advise the bank of any variations to the sale figure. In the event that you did not allow your conveyancer to notify the price change to your mortgage company then they would have to discontinue acting for you and the bank.
