How does conveyancing in Nag's Head differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Nag's Head approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is ready to move into. This is because builders in Nag's Head typically 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.

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.
