Most buyers of new build residence in Clophill come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because house builders in Clophill typically buy the land, plan the estate and want to get the plots sold off as they are building the properties.

An additional ninety years can be extended on to the existing lease and have £0 ground rent by law. You should consult your conveyancing lawyer about this matter.
