How does conveyancing in Stockbridge differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in Stockbridge approach us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because developers in Stockbridge usually acquire 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 Stockbridge or who has acted in the same development.
