Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Thorpe Astley come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is completed. This is because new home sellers in Thorpe Astley 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.
