Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Battlesbridge contact us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because builders in Battlesbridge usually purchase 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.
