How does conveyancing in Canvey Island differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Canvey Island approach us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is finished. This is because builders in Canvey Island typically purchase 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 used to new build conveyancing in Canvey Island or who has acted in the same development.

We refuse to offer any referral fee for pointing buyers and sellers to this site. We found it would be just too difficult to pay a commission as members of the public would think, ‘Why is the agent getting a kickback? Why aren’t I receiving any benefit too?’ We would prefer to grow our business on genuine recommendations.
