How does conveyancing in Carbis Bay differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Carbis Bay contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because house builders in Carbis Bay usually buy 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.

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