Most buyers of new build residence in Kempshott contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because developers in Kempshott usually 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.
