Conveyancing for New Build Houses in Colchester

As the market improves in Colchester and much of England and Wales and available properties are harder to find, new build homes are becoming more popular. There are unique advantages and disadvantages when purchasing new build properties. Pros include that 'new home' feeling, whereas negatives include being on notice to complete by or on a specific date.

In some cases, new build homes are marketed with free or discounted legal fees, while it may be the case that developer recovers the cost of this 'offer' elsewhere, it is vital that completely independent legal advice is sought from a conveyancing solicitor. Opting for a conveyancer chosen by your developer can result in a conflict of interest.
