Most buyers of new build premises in Chelmsley Wood contact us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the property is constructed. This is because house builders in Chelmsley Wood tend to purchase 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.

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.
