Why is buying a New Build Conveyancing different?

When buying a new build, property buyers are often faced with committing to the purchase before the property is built. This is referred to as “purchasing off plan”. As a buyer, you may purchase the property before construction has begun, or during the construction process. Generally, it is likely that you will have only viewed the show home.

The new build conveyancing process is different to a normal property purchase because:

  • It is the sale/purchase of a ‘new property’
  • The developer will have a large number of sales progressing at the same time
  • The developer may adopt a slightly different conveyancing process than normal
  • It is a sale of part, and as the developer usually owns the whole site, they will be disposing of it in the form of lots

To reduce the chances of losing your potential new property, contact us at the earliest possible opportunity – any mortgage enquiries should be submitted quickly. Buying a new build often means that there is no fixed completion date, which can sometimes be problematic. However, the team at Fletcher Longstaff are new build conveyancing experts, and are very experienced in these situations. We will efficiently communicate with all parties when buying a new build. We will also provide expert conveyancing advice where necessary. Making the new build conveyancing process as stress-free as possible for you.

Highly recommended.

I cannot praise Craig Dickson​, Conveyancing Executive, enough. While my buyer’s solicitor was variously not in the office/not working that day/not answering the phone or responding to emails, Craig was Always There! I really valued the fact that his responses to my questions were not only very prompt but he took the trouble to explain things, which helped me understand the sometimes extremely frustrating and ponderous processes involved in selling a leasehold property. I am very grateful to Craig and highly recommend him in particular, and Fletcher Longstaff in general. Professional, prompt and personal. Jacqueline

Part-exchanging an existing property can be as complex as any other home buying process. The builder’s solicitor must ensure that all legal aspects of the property are in order. The team at Fletcher Longstaff are able to offer a full legal service.
