If you do not already have a Financial Advisor then we are happy to recommend one who can provide friendly impartial advice and to guide you through the mortgage process.
Step 4 – Instruct a Solicitor
We are happy to provide details of local solicitors who can provide conveyancing services for the purchase of your new Green Spinnaker property and sale of your existing home if appropriate.
Step 5 – Get a valuation and survey
Your mortgage company will usually insist on a valuation and survey on your new Green Spinnaker property.
Step 6 – Exchange Contracts
When your solicitors are happy that all legal work has been completed and you have received your mortgage offer, our solicitor will be able to exchange contracts . At this time we will require a 10% deposit. we will use the reservation fee that you have made as a contribution towards this deposit..
Step 7 – Personalisation
Specification changes to your property will depend on the stage of construction at the time that you exchange. We will do our best to accommodate requests with regards to finishes and equipment supplied. Extras must be paid for at the time that they are ordered.
Step 8 – Build Progress Updates
We will keep you informed with build progress regularly so that you can plan your move to your new home. They will also be able to answer any queries you may have.
Step 9 – Tour of your New Home
On an agreed date before completion we will arrange a full tour of your new property including instruction on the heating and hot water controls and kitchen appliances. We prefer to do this a few days before your moving in date because we know that the day can be stressful.
Step 10 – Complete and Move in
As soon as the monies have been received by our solicitor we will hand over the keys and you are free to move in to your new Green Spinnaker home when you wish.
Step 11 – Warranty
