Most buyers of new build residence in South Yorkshire contact us having been asked by the builder to sign contracts and commit to the purchase even before the premises is ready to move into. This is because developers in South Yorkshire typically buy 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.
