Buyer Process

Balancing the sale of your current home with the purchase of your new home can be challenging. We’re here to help and guide you through this.

Solicitors
Working from home
Instruct a Solicitor
  • If you are selling or have sold a home you may already have a chosen solicitor. If not we have a list of Solicitors that our other customers have used and have recommend, please ask our sales team for details
  • Inform your solicitor that you have reserved a new home with us within 7 days of reservation
  • We would advise you to pay for searches at the time of instructing your solicitor so they are ready to progress with these as soon as they can
Exchange of Contracts
  • This is the first legal date that we work towards. It is on this date that deposit money is paid
  • Please ensure your solicitor is aware of the agreed exchange of contracts date (this date is on your reservation form)
  • Should your circumstances mean that you cannot achieve this date we can agree to an extension but only under certain circumstances. Please speak to your Sales Adviser to discuss this further
Legal Process
  • Your solicitor will contact ours to request a contract pack, which, they will review and raise enquiries on
  • At this time they will proceed with searches, which, may also raise enquiries that they will forward to our solicitors in preparation for exchange of contracts
  • You will need to arrange for the contracts to be signed and for any deposit funds to be transferred to your solicitor so they are prepared for exchange of contracts
  • The estimated legal completion date will be advised at exchange of contracts. Please ensure your Estate Agent is aware of this date and that the buyers in your chain are all working towards the same date

Your Mortgage
Mortgage Adviser / Financial Adviser
  • If you do require a mortgage to buy your new home you will need to get a mortgage in principle in the first instance.
  • If you haven’t decided on a Mortgage/Financial adviser you will need to do this straight away. Check with us as we have broker’s information if required
  • Agree with your adviser when you need to apply for your mortgage in full(a mortgage offer usually only lasts for 6 months)
  • If you are not taking a mortgage you will need to coordinate money transfers with your Financial Adviser and Solicitor
Mortgage Lender
  • Following the application of your mortgage your chosen lender will arrange for a valuation of the plot, they will contact us directly to arrange this
  • Ensure your Mortgage/Financial adviser is aware of the agreed completion date we are aiming for

Your new home

  • Your Sales Adviser will keep you updated with the build progress of your new home

Personalise your new home
Internals
  • Your new home comes with the opportunity to personalise your interiors. Dependent upon where we are in the build process this may also include the opportunity to make some minor electrical amendments i.e. moving or adding additional sockets.
  • Your Sales Adviser will invite you to a Colour Choice appointment to decide on the internal finish of your new home. At this time they will also discuss with you any extras or upgrades which you may be considering from the information provided in your reservation pack.
External
  • At Lindum Homes the aesthetics of the outside of your home is as important to us as it is to you. A lot of consideration goes into this at the planning stage involving architects and our technical team. Every detail is considered including brick, roof tiling, porch, windows and door colours giving your home that extra kerb side appeal.
  • Please note that changes cannot be made to the external detail of your new home.
