Newbuild Property

Direction Law’s newbuild department works closely with many of the country’s major House Builders, specialist New Homes Sales Agents and Housing Associations.

We act for residential buyers and investors from the UK and abroad on the purchase of newbuild units up and down the country.

The majority of developers give the buyer between 21 and 28 days from reserving the property to exchange of contracts. It is very important that this timescale is adhered to as otherwise you may be at risk of losing your reservation fee and the property. We are familiar with these deadlines and will do all we reasonably can to assist you in meeting them

Many newbuild properties are sold “off-plan” during the construction stage, with buyers having only seen the show-home. Unlike most solicitors we are very familiar with this concept and have helped thousands buy their newbuild property off plan.

We  also have particular expertise in the various affordable housing schemes that now operate, such as:

»     Help to Buy Equity Loans

»     Discount Market Sales

»     Shared Ownership

Working with a legal team who understand how these schemes work, deal with the additional layers of complexity on a daily basis and have experience in dealing with the developer’s solicitors is a distinct advantage in achieving a smooth, stress-free transaction.

Direction Law’s newbuild department is the largest in the firm, comprising a team of over 25 people, and takes pride in offering an excellent service to new home buyers.  We will always go the extra mile to make sure that we achieve a successful outcome for our clients and our online feedback shows that over 94% of our clients were either extremely likely or very likely to recommend our services to others.
