Most buyers of new build premises in Little Burstead approach us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because builders in Little Burstead typically 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.
