How does conveyancing in Halstead differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Halstead approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Halstead usually acquire the site, 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 property lawyers 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 Halstead or who has acted in the same development.

For most situations an enquiry agent should be useful to carry out a search and prepare an expert document which can be used as evidence that the landlord can not be located.
