New Build Solicitors

Buying a new build home is a great option if you’re a first-time buyer or looking for a home that doesn’t need much work. However, the legal process of buying or selling a new build property can be different to buying an older property, so choosing the right new build conveyancing solicitor is essential.

We understand that people feel excited but are also anxious about buying or selling a home. Conveyancing can be a long, uncertain process and with the added expectancies that come with buying a new build property, the process can all be the more daunting.

With this in mind, you must pick an experienced new build conveyancing solicitor - with Pennine Law, you’ve come to the right place.

At Pennine Law, we take the stress out of buying or selling your home. We specialise in fast, straightforward conveyancing and have loads of experience working with every kind of property buyer and home mover.

We have a team that specialises in new build properties and are well versed with all types of new build conveyancing and all the issues that buying a newly built property can bring. We’re proficient with purchases through Help to Buy and other government homeownership schemes as well as straightforward mortgage purchases and selling to a builder in a part-exchange deal.

In addition to ensuring that your transaction is completed swiftly and perfectly, we will focus on making your experience straightforward. This means explaining everything you need to know in clear language, never leaving you in the dark, and always making ourselves available when you need us.

No pointless delays. No hidden costs. No unnecessary stress. Just a job well done.

Here’s what you can expect from us:

  • Fixed fees – so you know how much your new build conveyancing will cost from start to finish.

  3. Let us get you moving
    We can start the process of buying a new build home as soon as you’re happy for us to proceed. Before we can make a start on the actual conveyancing, there are a few administrative things we need to get out of the way. For example, we need to verify your identity and you need to review our terms of business.
    We’ll also confirm your new build conveyancing quote in writing. You can trust that we’ll never go outside this quote unless extra work is required that is necessary (and even then, we’ll speak to you first and get your confirmation).

How our new build conveyancing lawyers can help you

We can handle every aspect of your conveyancing on your behalf. Our service covers:

  • Buying a house off-plan
  • Buying by way of part exchange of your existing home
  • Buying and selling through Help to Buy schemes
  • Buying and selling leaseholds (such as flats)
  • Checking the property title and carrying out conveyancing searches
  • Stamp Duty, including handling relief for first-time buyers
  • Checking issues that commonly affect new builds, such as planning permissions and access rights
  • Explaining new build guarantees

Buying a new build home off plan

If you are buying a new build home directly from a housing developer, you may be asked to reserve it before it has even been built.

This might sound bizarre, but it’s a popular option, particularly for people looking to purchase a new build property and how most big developers sell their new build properties.

However, buying off-plan is a different process to buying a property that has already been built. For example, you need to make sure that the house builder has the right planning permission, can fund the property without asking for a large deposit and that the property is completed to the right specs.

Our new build conveyancing solicitors know all the right questions to ask. We’ll provide honest advice about how your transaction is going and handle all the legal documentation on your behalf, so you don’t have to worry about a thing.

Help to Buy Solicitors

We can provide practical conveyancing advice to people looking to buy through the Help to Buy scheme and people looking to sell a property originally bought through Help to Buy.

Our service includes:

  • Handling the legal work required when buying new build property
  • Assisting with Help to Buy loan applications
  • Assisting with Help to Buy mortgages and working with your lender
  • All the other required conveyancing work that comes with buying or selling, such as checking title deeds

We have experience handling transactions through the Help to Buy Equity Loan scheme and the Help to Buy ISA scheme (which is closed to new applicants but can be used by existing account holders until 2029).
