How does conveyancing in Pimlico differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Pimlico come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because developers in Pimlico 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 conveyancers 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 used to new build conveyancing in Pimlico or who has acted in the same development.
