How does conveyancing in Seaton differ for new build properties?
Most buyers of new build property in Seaton approach us having been asked by the builder to exchange contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is finished. This is because new home sellers in Seaton usually buy 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. To reduce the chances of losing the property, buyers should instruct property lawyers as soon as the property is reserved and mortgage applications should be submitted quickly.

It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are accustomed to new build conveyancing in Seaton or who has acted in the same development.
