Buying a New Build Property

Our specialist team of new build solicitors are dedicated to helping individuals and families purchase new homes smoothly and efficiently.

As panel solicitors to Barratt Homes and Berkeley Homes we are trusted by some of the largest developers in the South East to look after conveyancing for their new build properties.

New build homes require a different approach in comparison to other types of property purchases. For example, the timescales are different and there may be other considerations regarding the property that you need to be advised on.

“Lewis Denley has been incredible, from the first time we spoke to them they have been professional and worked really hard to get us our new build. They kept us informed of what was happening at all times and answered any questions, no matter how silly they were, without a second thought. They could meet with us based on our convenience. I would not hesitate to use this company again and would recommend them to anyone who asked.”
Jenny & Craig – Clients

Our new home solicitors have extensive knowledge of Help to Buy and Shared Ownership schemes.

Our specialist team help hundreds of people move into new homes each and every year, and our priority is to help your purchase proceed as smoothly and quickly as possible.

“As you know it is imperative for us at Berkeley that the level of service delivered to our clients by any company that we may refer them to matches what we ourselves deliver.”

    We recently used Lewis Denley to purchase a property and would enthusiastically recommend them. Every member of staff we dealt with was great, but in particular Carrie Foley was impressive from start to finish. She was efficient, friendly and very helpful. Always there when we needed her, often ten steps ahead, and she was patient and adaptable when other solicitors in the chain were causing tremendous problems. Cannot recommend this firm highly enough!
    Lewis Denley Solicitors have been great to work with. They are highly professional, always kept us in the loop and updated on where the sale of our property was at. They kept the process moving and we were able to complete the sale in a short space of time. Awesome solicitors who actually get the job done and to top it off they don't charge the earth!
    Fair price, transparent in their dealings. A bit slow to respond on occasions but have been hampered by Covid restrictions. On the whole a satisfactory experience - but then it wasn't a particularly testing conveyancing job.
    I am very satisfied with how Lewis Denley handled my house purchase, as the process was adapted in order for completion to go ahead, despite the COVID-19 pandemic. For example, the use of an ID recognition app and use of email to reduce the risk of face to face meetings. I will be using Lewis Denley in future.

    Lewis Denley came highly recommended when searching for a solicitor. The entire process was faultless. Mabelline Appaiha was my solicitor and Anna Stoneham my paralegal. Both were extremely efficient and thorough. Managed to exchange and complete within 6 weeks. I will definitely use LD again
