How does conveyancing in West Thurrock differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build residence in West Thurrock come to us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because developers in West Thurrock typically 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 property lawyers 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 used to new build conveyancing in West Thurrock or who has acted in the same development.
