How does conveyancing in Llandysul differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build or newly converted property in Llandysul approach us having been asked by the developer to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the residence is completed. This is because new home sellers in Llandysul usually acquire the site, 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.
