questions answered

We recognise the importance of avoiding unnecessary delays during the plot sales process. We use an online data room to collate all the legal documentation relating to the development site which can be accessed by a plot purchaser’s solicitor as soon as they are instructed. This avoids losing crucial time at the beginning of the transaction and facilitates a quick exchange.

We include a detailed information sheet in our data room which provides plot purchasers’ solicitors with as much information as possible at the outset of the transaction. This minimises the number of queries raised and ensures the transaction runs smoothly.
