How does conveyancing in Denmark Hill differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Denmark Hill come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because builders in Denmark Hill tend to acquire 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.
