Most buyers of new build residence in Selsdon come to us having been asked by the developer to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is finished. This is because new home sellers in Selsdon tend to 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. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Selsdon or who has acted in the same development.
