How does conveyancing in South Tottenham differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in South Tottenham contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is constructed. This is because house builders in South Tottenham 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in South Tottenham or who has acted in the same development.
I have been advised by a number of property agents in South Tottenham to get a quote from a solicitor using your seach tool. Is there a financial upside for Estate Agents to market your site rather than alternative conveyancing organisations?
We don’t give any financial incentive for pointing buyers and sellers in our direction. We thought it would be too underhand a fee as home movers will think, ‘How come the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I getting any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.

A defective lease will likely cause issues when trying to sell a property as they can affect a potential buyer’s ability to obtain a mortgage.
