New-build Property Purchases

New-build Property Purchases

Purchasing a new-build property is typically more complex compared to an existing property. Timescales for exchanging contracts are tighter, stamp duty rules may differ, and a purchase commitment may be required prior to the build.

You need lawyers experienced in this area of law, to ensure you gain full legal ownership of your new home; and to check that the documentation does not contain adverse provisions.

Our residential property team has a dedicated approach, and the experience to manage new-build property transactions from reservation to completion.

With strong relationships with developers, our expert property lawyers can help with all leasehold developments and freehold purchases. Whether you are buying, part-exchanging or tying in the sale of an existing property to your new-build, our team will make sure the process is as seamless as possible.
