Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Llandaff come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is built. This is because house builders in Llandaff typically 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.
