Buying from a developer

New Homes Conveyancing

Our specialist and dedicated new homes conveyancing team deliver a tailored service to people buying a home from a developer or house builder.

Our New Homes team consists of a highly specialised and dedicated team of conveyancers. Our trusted team of experts place great importance in delivering a professional, friendly and accessible service to our clients.

The conveyancing process for buying a new build property is not the same as traditional conveyancing. Therefore, it is essential that you appoint a team able to provide the specialist and expert advice you need at every step of the transaction.

Our experience

Our New Homes conveyancing team has over 20 years of experience in dealing with the demands of developers and recognises the unique requirements involved when buying a new home. This includes ensuring that contracts are exchanged within the timescales imposed by the developer at the time you reserve the property.  We achieve this by a combination of our expertise, by working closely with you, your mortgage advisor and with the developers legal team.

We visit every development and gain first hand knowledge of the location in which you are purchasing. We will provide you with a full ‘easy to understand’ report on the contract documentation, tailored to your needs.

Access to our team

At Coffin Mew, a partner-led service means that your move will get the priority it deserves. Your personal Conveyancing Executive will be your main point of contact right through to the successful completion of your new home.

Specialist Help to Buy experts

We have significant experience and a thorough understanding of the process unique to the Help to Buy scheme, having helped over 1,500 buyers complete their purchase using this scheme in the last year alone.

Moving quickly

We work hard to ensure your legal work is completed as soon as possible. We keep you and the site informed of key developments within the transaction.

Quality service

We put our clients first and deliver to a standard which is second to none. We aim to provide our service in ways which are more efficient and cost-effective, to meet the future needs of our clients.
