How does conveyancing in Glenfield differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Glenfield approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because house builders in Glenfield typically buy 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. 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 used to new build conveyancing in Glenfield or who has acted in the same development.
