Organise your Finances
Before beginning your search for new homes in London, it is wise to arrange your finances. This process may involve agreeing a mortgage in principle or making funds available; this is with the view that confirming your financial situation beforehand will ultimately dictate your property search.
We work closely with a number of mortgage brokers, all of whom are capable and willing to assess your circumstances and ensure you receive the best mortgage available. Acquiring a mortgage can be a very personal experience and it is important to work with someone you trust.
Our vast experience of the London new homes property market has allowed us to build up a comprehensive list of industry contacts. As such, we recommend mortgage brokers that share our values; they believe that any financial decision should be linked to your lifestyle, plans and future aspirations.

Putting Forward an Offer
It is important you see a selection of properties to fully understand the London new homes property market. Once you find the right property for you, we will put your offer forward to the vendor. This offer can be as specific as you wish, as we relay any special requirements verbally and in writing to the vendor.
FYI: No legal obligations are in place on either side until the contracts are signed.
Instructing a Solicitor
The importance of a good solicitor cannot be underestimated when buying new build property; the successful acquisition of a property often relies heavily on the appointment of an experienced solicitor.
We can recommend a number of firms with a vast knowledge of the London property market.
Upon acceptance of an offer we begin processes to ensure the transition is as smooth as possible. You will need to pay a reservation fee, sign the reservation form and instruct the solicitor. You will also be required to send over some proof of identification and current address. Furthermore, proof of financial verification will also be needed to move to the next stage of making the property under offer.
The vendor's solicitor will then send a developers pack, normally about 1,000 pages, as well as a separate contract to the purchaser's solicitor.
Once these documents have been received and both parties agree the terms, the documents will be sent to the purchaser to sign, also requesting the funds. The vendor's solicitor will now send the contract to the vendor to sign.
Once both solicitors have received the signed contracts the purchase will be complete. For off plan you usually only need to initially pay the deposit fee, with the remaining monies to be paid once the property build has completed.
Congratulations you have just purchased a new home in London!
