I have given 8 weeks notice to my existing landlord and must be out of my let out apartment in Colliers Wood by the end of next month. Conveyancing on my purchase is underway. Can I complete in 5 weeks as I wish to avoid having to find short term accommodation?

How does conveyancing in Colliers Wood differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Colliers Wood contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is ready to move into. This is because new home sellers in Colliers Wood typically buy 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 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 accustomed to new build conveyancing in Colliers Wood or who has acted in the same development.
