You may not hear this from too many lawyers but conveyancing in Gwernaffield and elsewhere in England and Wales is often a confrontational experience. In other words, when it comes to conveyancing there exists an abundance of room for confrontation between you and others involved in the house moving process. For example, the seller, estate agent and sometimes a lender.

How does conveyancing in Gwernaffield differ for newly converted properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Gwernaffield contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because builders in Gwernaffield 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. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct conveyancers 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 Gwernaffield or who has acted in the same development.
