How does conveyancing in Silsoe differ for new build properties?

Most buyers of new build premises in Silsoe contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the house is completed. This is because developers in Silsoe 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. 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. It would be wise to use a lawyer who specialises in new build conveyancing especially if they are used to new build conveyancing in Silsoe or who has acted in the same development.

It best that you discharge the service charge as you normally would given that all ground rent and maintenance payments will be allottedon completion, so you should recover the relevant percentage by the buyer for the period running from after the completion date to the subsequent invoice date. Most managing agents will not acknowledge the buyer unless the service charges have been paid and are up to date so it is important for both buyer and seller for the seller to show that they are up to date.
