If I want to build an extension or do other works once I move in, can I get a builder to visit to give me a quote?
There is nothing stopping you trying to organise this, so long as you set a date and time that’s acceptable to the vendor (or via their estate agent if they are unable to be there) and try to establish how long the process will take, so that this can be booked in.
This becomes particularly critical following a surveyor’s inspection where remedial works are identified and recommended. You can use the quote from the builder as a renegotiation tool on the asking price, if the work required is going to be particularly costly. If you decide to go down this route, it must be done before exchange of contracts (where you’re committing to the sale price) and you should inform your solicitor if you’ve had private discussions and agreements with the vendor over price for inclusion in the terms of the contract.
Why does the conveyancing process need such a long time?
The conveyancing process could potentially be delayed, Homeward Legal, however, understand how unnecessarily stressful these delays can be and strive to lessen the consequences of these delays if it can be achieved. Reasons for delay include slow third parties such as landlords or managing agents.
