How does conveyancing in Alresford differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Alresford contact us having been asked by the seller to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because house builders in Alresford 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 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 used to new build conveyancing in Alresford or who has acted in the same development.

It is unlikely the sellers are driving this. If they require ‘a quick sale', turning down a genuine buyer is likely to cause more damage than good. Avoid the agents and go straight to the sellers and make sure they understand (a)you are keen to buy (b)you are ready to progress, with mortgage lined up © you have nothing to sell (d) you wish to move quickly (e)however you are going to use your own,trusted Alresford conveyancing firm - rather thanthose that will provide the estate agent a kickback or meet his conveyancing figures set by corporate headquarters.
