Most buyers of new build premises in Goffs Oak approach 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 house builders in Goffs Oak usually 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.

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.
