How does conveyancing in Gwersyllt differ for newly converted properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Gwersyllt approach us having been asked by the seller to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is constructed. This is because builders in Gwersyllt typically acquire 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.

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 Gwersyllt or who has acted in the same development.
