New build properties

If you're buying a new build property, Tees can take care of all the legal details - and get you into your new home on time!

Do you need help with a new build home?

The low supply of houses in England means the property market remains competitive. Even people who are looking to buy a new build, perhaps off plan, have to move quick. 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.

If you're buying a new build home, Tees can help. We understand the unique process of buying a new build; and we look at every detail for you. From land searches, to surverys, to checking the fine print of your contract - we handle it all.

We work to your schedule

If you want to buy a new-build home, you may find you have to commit to the purchase before a single brick is laid. This can mean exchanging contracts within as little as four weeks. Don’t worry, because we understand the pressure you’re under – though more importantly, we can turn all the paperwork round fast enough to ensure you hit the deadline. 

How we can help you

We have a lot of experience and expertise in conveyancing for new builds, whether they’re leasehold or freehold developments, including retirement complexes. We know how new build contracts work, and we know how to deal with all the other related issues, from planning permission to road and drainage adoption

Our straightforward approach

Our approach is to keep the process straightforward and stress-free for you. We always look out for your best interests, and we keep you informed at every stage of the process, so that you know exactly what’s happening and when.

A seamless service

Besides new builds, our residential property team can advise on any aspect of property law. The sort of matters we can help you with include:

  • buying or selling a house
  • remortgaging your home
  • releasing equity in your home
  • advice for landlords and tenants

What to do next

Buying a house is a personal business, so we make sure you get a personal service. Everything we do is tailored to your individual needs, and all the advice we offer will be geared towards your best interests. Above all, we want you to have peace of mind that we’re doing what’s necessary to complete your purchase in time.

We also know how all the different pieces of the house-buying process fit together – and we have excellent relationships with local estate agents, surveyors and other professionals, so you can expect a seamless service.
