The legal process of buying a new build property is different and often more complicated than an existing property.

Usually, when buying a new build property, your offer is accepted by the builder before the property is structurally complete.

 At Banner Jones, we understand that owning your new home is deadline driven. You'll have a dedicated and proactive member of the conveyancing team to handle your matter and we'll keep you informed every step of the way.

The Four Key Stages of Buying a New Build Home

Step One: The Reservation Process

If you are buying off plan then you will need to pay a reservation fee to secure your chosen plot.  You will receive a reservation agreement at this stage which outlines exactly what you are buying and what's included in your house.  It is also wise at this stage to have a mortgage in principle secured so that you have the finance in place for when the house is ready.

Step Two: Instruct a Solicitor to Complete the Conveyancing

When you purchase a new build property, you will usually have a limited period of 28 days to exchange contracts. Choosing a solicitor who already has knowledge of the development site will help you to achieve this often tight deadline. You will now need to secure you formal morgage offer so that the money is ready to be transferred on completion.

Step Three: Exchange of Contracts 

As part of the conveyancing process, contracts are exhanged between you and the seller, which is usually the developer in this instance.  At this point you may be able to access the house to complete a snagging list.  This gives the developer chance to fix these items before you move in.

Step Four: Completion Date 

This is the date when monies are transferred and you receive the keys to your new home.
