Conveyancing for new builds is a more complex process and transaction than the purchase of an existing house
Buying a new build property ‘off-plan’ can be an exciting but complex experience. Often, these purchases happen before construction has even begun, or while it’s underway, leaving you to make a decision based on a show home or plans. The conveyancing process for new build properties is distinct from that of standard property purchases, owing to unique considerations such as construction timelines, developer warranties, and more.

What's different from an existing property?

The developer will have a large number of sales progressing at the same time
The developer may adopt a slightly different conveyancing process than normal
There may be incentives from the developer that need consideration
Lenders may have different processes/lending criteria for new build purchases
As developers usually owns the whole site, they will sell off parts of the development in the form of lots

As a mortgage broker I am in contact with solicitors on a daily basis. Tom Hansen helped one of my customers purchase their first home and I was so impressed I asked him to act for me on my home move. It was a very complicated chain which went on for nearly a year but Tom was there for me every step of the way. It is refreshing to have a solicitor who will talk to you and actually answer the phone every time you call. Panic set in when Tom told me he was on holiday just as I was due to move, but panic not, Kerry McGinty stepped in and was in constant contact with me as Tom had obviously fully briefed her on my case and left me in very capable hands. I cannot thank Tom enough, he is an absolute hero. He was always there and reassured me through a very stressful time, nothing was too much trouble. If you want a solicitor who is reliable, approachable and knowledgeable then contact Tom.

We were recommended Fletcher Longstaff to us by the estate agent involved in our first home buy. Although slightly more expensive than other solicitors we had been quoted, i can’t recommend them more. The whole process, from our offer being accepted to the completion, was easy, fast and stress free. The online portal is incredible at giving you an update on progress whenever you need, and any emails i dropped Tom were answered within an hour. Of course when buying a house, there’s usually a couple of solicitors involved across the chain, Tom was always the first to reply/make things happen. I never had to chase him or send double emails. I cant recommend this firm enough, if we are ever in need of them again i know i’ll be back!! Do yourselves a favour, and choose Fletcher Longstaff!!

I decided to use Fletcher Longstaff based on reviews that I had researched. I can honestly say that the positive reviews not only reflect their working practice but in some ways if there was a way of giving more stars I would. My conveyancer was Gareth Edwards and he was courteous, prompt, professional and most importantly contactable at all times, however Gareths informative updates always left me in no doubt what stage we were during the process. I was cc'd into every email and a progress report was sent out regularly. Gareth is a credit to the company and I would have no hesitation in fact I would go out of my way to recommend Fletcher Longstaff. Thanks Gareth for making what could have been stressful an absolute breeze.
I would highly recommend Kerry at Fletcher Longstaff! We have worked with Kerry before in our previous purchase and did not hesitate to reach out to Fletcher Longstaff to employ Kerry's service once again. The fact that we have the keys to our new home (despite the odds!) is undoubtedly due to Kerry's extensive conveyancing experience and unwavering professionalism. Despite many challenges in our sale and purchase (some expected, some unexpected!) Kerry knew how to approach each situation masterfully and never hesitated to guide us through the process to ensure we were armed with the right information to make the right decisions. Kerry's expert competence and the polished processes at Fletcher Longstaff really highlighted the incompetence of other solicitors in the chain and we thanked our lucky stars many times for having Kerry on our team, who went above and beyond for us. Thank you so much Kerry and the team at Fletcher Longstaff.
