Reserve your property

Once we find you the home we are happy to help you out with the finances etc. You can reserve the property by paying a deposit fee to the developer.

The deposit fees may vary from £500 to £5000 and this will reserve the property for the clinet for 28 days. Within this time the developer would expect to exchange the contracts. The deposit price what has been paid would be deducted from the final price of the property

Appoint a conveyancing solicitor

In any of the property purchase a conveyancing solicitor plays a very important role and that is why he should handle the whole deal just to make sure that the contracts are properly arranged and communicated properly.

The main responsibility of the solicitor is to make sure that whole purchase process go smooth and there are no hurdles.

Prepare Contract

The Solicitor of the Development side will share you the contract which you can go through and then your solicitor will send it back.



Pay the deposit

The deposit of 10 % would be required . You will pay the amount to your solicitor and eventually he will transfer the funds to the developers solicitor on your behalf. You might need to pay the land registry fees at this time.
