  • Compliance with planning regulations including checks and searches such as checking that appropriate planning permission has been obtained and that the property has been built in full accordance with it.
  • Freehold purchases
  • Leasehold purchases
  • Future maintenance of common parts of a development.
  • NHBC inspections and NHBC warranties which provide a form of insurance against structural defects. Most new builds come with a ten-year NHBC warranty
  • Agreements for roads and sewers including checks that drains and utilities have been properly established.
  • Local searches
  • Boundaries
  • Access rights
  • Rights of way
  • Access to services
  • Restrictive covenants which may have been written into the lease or registered against the freehold title and could prohibit alterations to the property without permission
  • Snagging and warranties provision that can be written into your contract to address any building work, structural or cosmetic, that falls short of expectations, errors or defects that need to be itemised and passed onto the builder for repair. We recommend you get an independent snagging survey, at the soonest opportunity, preferably before you make your final payment on the property, before completion or as soon as you move in to avoid issues being disregarded by your builder as wear and tear
  • Mortgaging and re-mortgaging
  • Reservation fees

  • Completion dates
  • Disputes with your builder / property developer

Our dedicated team of conveyancing solicitors for new build developments will ensure that the contract is in your favour, that your deposit is fully protected and there is a “long-stop” completion date for your property to be finished by.
