What do you need help with?

New Build

Buying a New Build property will give you a brand new home using the latest in modern building techniques and features. In some cases, you may be buying off plan as often your home has not been fully built at the time of reservation. Buying a new build home, you need to be in a position to act quickly and be prepared to wait for the property to be completed.

Help to Buy

Help to Buy is a Government affordable home scheme which allows you to buy a new build home with an equity loan option which lends you 20% (40% in London) interest free for the first five years. This loan helps make buying your first home more affordable. You will need to have a minimum 5% deposit of your own. If you are looking to save a larger deposit towards a property, you could look to open a Help to Buy ISA with many financial institutions. This scheme means you can get a 25% contribution from the government for every £200 you save, up to a maximum bonus of £3,000 per person. The bonus can be used towards your purchase upon completion but cannot be used towards your exchange deposit so you must ensure you have 5% saved for exchange.

Shared Ownership

Shared Ownership is the most established affordable home product to assist in buying your first home. Purchasing a property through a Shared Ownership scheme is the perfect way to get your foot on to the housing ladder, particularly if you are unable to afford to purchase a home outright. With Shared Ownership, you can purchase a share of a property, whilst paying rent on the remaining share. Once you own a share, you are able to buy further shares in the property as and when you can afford to – only if you want to!

Residential

Residential conveyancing is buying and/or selling a property on the open market. We can act for you in both the sale and purchase of your new home.

What our customers say…

New Homes Law have been working with Help to Buy London for a number of years. They have to submit numerous documents to us on a daily basis, in order for the sale to progress to completion and the equity loan to be secured against the property. New Homes Law have always been very easy to work with, and if there have been any issues, they have been quick to rectify them. They have a good knowledge of the Help to Buy process and paperwork, which helps the sales to go through smoothly.

Laura Ellis - Equity Loan Manager

Help to Buy London

I have worked with New Homes Law for many years and they have always provided our buyers with an excellent service.

New Homes Law have also been able to offer my sales negotiators so that they can gain insight in to the Help to Buy scheme and how the conveyancing transaction process works.

The training days that they offer are free of charge and we have found that this enables the negotiators to talk to first time buyers confidently about their intended purchase, something as a developer we find invaluable. It has been extremely well received by all my negotiators.

We have never known a legal service firm to put some much effort in to our negotiators so that they can then in turn help educate prospective buyers.

I am very thankful that my staff have been given this opportunity.

Mark Harrop - Sales Director

Bellway Homes - Kent Division

As a sales agent acting for several housing associations and local authorities, information is key. It is imperative that we have open lines of communication with all parties involved in the sales process to ensure a seamless, hassles free experience for our customer and client alike. I have worked with New Homes Law for the past 5 years and they have always provided me with a first-class experience, indentifying early on anything that may cause an issue or delay and providing me with advice on how to resolve it before it becomes a problem.

The team at New Homes Law have always been easily reached by telephone ensuring that I have had a rapid response to any enquiries I may have raised.  I have always been met with a warm and friendly response in all my dealings with New Homes Law.

Our customer satisfaction is of paramount importance to us and as such we canvass their feedback at the end of the purchase process and we use this to determine which solicitors we work with – the customer feedback for New Homes Law has always been exceptional which is why we continue to work closely with them.

I would just like to convey our thanks on behalf of our many buyers you have helped over the last few years.

Buying their first property is the most stressful time for many of our Shared Ownership buyers but with the help of New Homes Law a lot of this stress is removed. Reports from purchasers are often positive to the point of glowing. They have found them to be wholly efficient in taking care of all enquiries, purchasers are kept in constant communication and never left in the dark. They answer even the most obvious questions with patience and most importantly for first time buyers in plain English. As an organisation who is not only a developer but also a charity and provider of social housing it is important that we have partners who are able to deliver a smart, efficient and friendly service to our purchasers. A seamless and anxiety free customer journey is high on our list of KPI’s and we feel New Homes Law are able to deliver this time after time.
