The UK government has committed to building more new homes to help with the growing population and the shortage of properties available on the market. Right across England and Wales developers are being encouraged to construct new build homes, which has seen our Online Conveyancing Solicitors help a growing number of homeowners to manage the buying process.
Buying a new build property is slightly different from purchasing an existing home as there is no need to wait for the seller to purchase a house. Therefore, unless you have a property to sell, you can complete the purchase of your new build property as soon as construction completes.
As with all good things however, come drawbacks. Since a new build property would have never been registered at the Land Registry previously, it is crucial that the legal work is carried out by an expert who has extensive knowledge and experience in dealing with new build property transactions.
Using our expertise in this area, we have created a simple and hassle-free process to ensure you are able to complete proceedings as quickly as possible.

With our years of experience, we can help you navigate these risks. [read more...]
