How does conveyancing in Oval differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Oval approach us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because developers in Oval tend to 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 property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly.
