The risk of flooding is if increasing concern for lawyers carrying out conveyancing in Seaton. There are those who purchase a house in Seaton, fully aware that at some time, it may be flooded.

How does conveyancing in Seaton differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Seaton come to us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because new home sellers in Seaton typically purchase the land, 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Seaton or who has acted in the same development.
