Buying Your New Build Home
Matthew Dunford made the process of buying our first house stress-free and smooth, keeping us in the loop from the moment we made contact right up until after we’d moved in and finalised everything necessary. Even when he wasn’t available, the team around him were more than happy and able to help.
At Farnfields Solicitors we make buying your new build home as straightforward as possible. Instructing solicitors early shows you are committed and helps to secure your purchase within the developer’s timescale of 28 days (or less).
There are three clear milestones in the new build conveyancing transaction:
- Reservation (you pay a reservation deposit to the developer usually at the site office)
- Exchange of contracts (the seller and buyer become legally committed to the transaction)
- Completion (moving day)
We will keep the process on track, giving you clear timescales, reducing delays and keeping you posted at every step.
Our conveyancing fees are easy to understand with a full breakdown of legal fees and VAT, as well as other costs such as searches, Land Registry and Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT). Our ‘transparent and upfront pricing’ promise means that when you receive conveyancing estimates from us you will know exactly what they cover, and will not be billed for any unexpected extras as we will always work with you if we need to revise our costs estimate. We also give you our ‘swift response’ promise which is really important when you are buying a home. It means you will always know what stage the process is at and will not have to chase for updates.
