How does conveyancing in Brent Park differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Brent Park approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because builders in Brent Park usually acquire the land, 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.
