How does conveyancing in Ruislip differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Ruislip come to us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because builders in Ruislip usually 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. 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. 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 Ruislip or who has acted in the same development.
