How does conveyancing in Cowley differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Cowley approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because house builders in Cowley tend to 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. 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. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Cowley or who has acted in the same development.

You have the right to appoint your own conveyancer. Don't forget that many mortgage providers have an approved list of conveyancers you must use for the mortgage aspect of your house move.
