Demand for new build homes in the UK is at an all-time high and property developments of all types and sizes continue to appear at pace.

Chain-free purchase, developer incentives, brand new stylish interiors and the benefit of a 10-year guarantee are enticing prospects and being the very first owner of a new home is extremely exciting. However, the conveyancing process for new homes is a little more complicated than the standard process and the right solicitor can help to smooth the path to successful completion.

Conveyancing for a new build property generally requires specialist experience in a number of areas, including:

  • buying ‘off plan’
  • changing build schedules
  • new build mortgages
  • planning permissions
  • building regulation consents
  • new build guarantees
  • agreements for the adoption of roads and sewers
  • access rights and snagging retentions

Our dedicated residential conveyancing team includes specialists who provide buyers of new homes with a bespoke service, which is highly personal and designed to ensure a swift, efficient and stress-free completion for your purchase.

Our team is a key component of the wider Property Services group that is consistently ranked in the top tier of both The Legal 500 and Chambers Guide to the Legal Profession and regarded as the region's leading full service property team.

Our approach

We believe that all clients deserve the best service from the most experienced lawyers.

This lawyer will be available to answer your questions at any time and will ensure that you are kept fully updated and that any issues are anticipated and dealt with before they create a delay.

Unlike many other conveyancing services, phone calls are always returned on the same day and our clients never, ever receive ‘holding’ emails or letters.

We understand the reassurance and confidence that comes from feeling fully updated and in control throughout the process – it’s one of the main reasons why our clients use and recommend us time and time again.

  • Purchase of freehold and leasehold properties
  • Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT) advice
  • New build guarantee advice
  • New build mortgages
  • Help to Buy
  • Shared Ownership
  • Discounted Market Scheme Units
