Comprehensive and accelerated service

New build property transactions are far more involved than your usual property purchase, as the property being purchased is sometimes sold off-plan, and therefore may be different to what the original property was sold as.

Furthermore, the services that affect the property are not yet in place and as such there will need to be various agreements in place for each one. For example, as the roads will not have been built, they will not be maintained by the local authority; however, the local authority may refuse to maintain them at all unless they are brought up to a specific standard. As such, you will want to be assured that the developer will bring the road up to that standard and maintain it until the local authority adopt the road – otherwise, you may end up paying for the maintenance of the road in addition to the cost of running the household.

These transactions are highly-pressured and there is an expectation that exchange will be obtained within four weeks of receipt of the contract documentation. As such, having your mortgage offer in hand is vital and as there is a limited time-frame to work within, specialist searches are often required.

At Ellisons we ensure that you are looked after for the entirety of the process
