Just been in touch with my conveyancing lawyer in Budleigh Salterton who conducted the legals two years ago requesting a conveyancing quote based on the same type of house sale & purchase (a leasehold residence and a freehold premises) of almost identical values with a mortgage from Nationwide Building Society.

How does conveyancing in Budleigh Salterton differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build premises in Budleigh Salterton come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because new home sellers in Budleigh Salterton typically purchase 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 Budleigh Salterton or who has acted in the same development.
