New build property conveyancing

Do you need help with a new build home?

Despite the commitment to increase housing stock in the UK, the property market remains competitive. Even people who are looking to buy a new build, perhaps off plan, have to move quickly. If you’re in this position, you’re going to need a solicitor who understands the process inside out, and who can complete the conveyancing in time.

What is different about new build conveyancing?

  • The site of the property will usually be owned by the developer, the sale of your new build property may be a part sale of the plot
  • The conveyancing procedure may be altered to simplify the process for the developer, who is likely to be involved in a number of sales simultaneously
  • Sales may be subject to deadlines imposed by the builders, you may find you have to commit to the purchase before a single brick is laid
  • And exchange contracts within as little as four weeks
