Buying Process

Buying a new home can be a daunting and often overwhelming process. At Ashdrew Homes we are here to support you throughout the process from reservation through to successful completion and every step in between. We have years of experience in making this process as simple and easy for you as possible.



With Ashdrew Homes, you have the opportunity to buy off plan. You will be invited into the office to view plans, prices & specification and we can talk you through the buying process and answer any questions you may have. Once you decide on a property, we will reserve it under your name.

Kindly be aware that buying off plan often means that the property completion date can be  6-12 months after reservation.

Here is a copy of the Code Scheme to Home Buyers for further help and  information.


Mortgages and Instructing Solicitors

We are able to recommend local mortgage advisers who will be able to assist you with your mortgage and help to buy application.

Often our mortgage advisers are able to arrange more attractive interest rates and products than those offered by individual  lenders.

At this point in the process we also ask for details of your solicitor. If you don’t have a solicitor, we are able to recommend local solicitors who have  knowledge and experience with the Help to Buy Scheme and also the  purchase of brand new homes.

Once your mortgage application is agreed, the valuation will go ahead and your solicitor will receive a contract from our solicitors. Next, various searches and legal documentation will be completed.


Exchange of contracts

Once your solicitor is satisfied with all the necessary searches and the required legal documentation is in place, you will be asked to exchange contracts.

An expected completion date is arranged after the exchange of contracts. We will of course provide you with regular progress reports on the build as it develops.


Tailoring your property

Depending on the stage of construction, between the exchange of contracts and the completion date you may  have the opportunity to make certain decisions regarding the finish of your new home.


Completion and Handover

It is standard to have approximately one month’s notice prior to the final completion date. A few days before the completion date you will need to transfer the remaining deposit, legal fees and stamp duty to your solicitor.

On the handover day we will meet you at your new property and provide you with a comprehensive handover pack, which contains all you need to know about your new home.



You will be given the opportunity to produce a snagging list within two weeks of completion.

Once we receive your snagging list, we will be happy to instruct the relevant trades people to carry out any necessary work.


Building Guarantee

Your property will be covered by a ten year new build guarantee. This documentation will be given to you via solicitors on completion
