Most buyers of new build property in Llandaff North come to us having been asked by the housebuilder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is built. This is because house builders in Llandaff North usually 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 used to new build conveyancing in Llandaff North or who has acted in the same development.
