the buying process

OUR TEAM WILL BE WITH YOU EVERY STEP OF THE WAY, AND SO TO MAKE THINGS AS SIMPLE AND STRAIGHTFORWARD AS POSSIBLE WE HAVE DEVELOPED THIS STEP-BY-STEP GUIDE FOR YOU TO FOLLOW.

 

STEP 1: RESERVATION

Once you have decided which of our properties you want, the sales team will assist you in completing the reservation paperwork. You will also need to pay your reservation deposit which will secure your new home.

STEP 2: GETTING THE RIGHT FINANCIAL ADVICE

If you are taking out a mortgage for the property, you may have already spoken to a financial advisor to check affordability and what is possible. However, we have a team of impartial experts should you require extra information or reassurance. We know the financial side of buying a property can be a little overwhelming, so if there are any questions you have, we can be sure to provide you with the answers you need, quickly and succinctly. Finding the right package to suit you is key.

After receiving your mortgage offer, now is the time to let us know and instruct your legal advisors.

STEP 3: INSTRUCTING A SOLICITOR

To handle the procedural aspects of buying a property, you need to instruct a legal advisor to act on your behalf. Again, we are more than happy to suggest truly independent experts if you are unsure. It will be down to them to handle the transfer of ownership - known as conveyancing. As there are various fees to pay to legal advisors, it is important you ask up front for a breakdown of what they are and when they need to be paid - this will make sure you know exactly what to expect.

STEP 4: EXCHANGE OF CONTRACTS

Once the solicitor gives you the go ahead that they are happy with all the details, and the mortgage offer is in place, you can sign and exchange the contract for the property.

This will be supported by the exchange of contract deposit.

STEP 5: CHOICES AND OPTIONS

Here is where you can start to make your house your own. If you are purchasing a property that is yet to be completed, you may be able to personalise with certain choice and options. This will typically include the finish and fitting in the kitchen, as well as tiles and flooring.

We are proud of our high level of standard specification, but you may be able to enhance this by choosing from our wide range of optional extras.

Some options are subject to the build stage of your chosen property, so please speak with our sales team.

STEP 6: BUILD PROGRESS UPDATES

As the completion date nears, our dedicated team will keep you fully up-to-date with the progress and the projected date when it will be ready to move into.

STEP 7: PRE-DECORATION VISIT & HOME DEMONSTRATION

To help you to understand how your home is built and demonstrate to you how you can make the best use of the fittings and appliances within your new home, we will arrange a visit for you with the Site Manager and Sales Consultant. This will allow you to see the progress of the new home and ensure you get the most out of it.

STEP 8: LEGAL COMPLETION AND HANDOVER

The moment you have been waiting for. Once the balance of the purchase price has been received by Berkeley DeVeer Homes, we can legally complete the sale. This is when you get your keys to the property and the handover team will welcome you to your new home.

premier finish

Berkeley DeVeer believes in building homes that are not only innovative in design but finished to the highest specification as standard. Whilst other developers would look to charge extra for such a high level finish, we believe in giving homebuyers the best possible product to move into.

Attention to detail is at the forefront of our craftsmanship and every one of our new homes has been planned to meet the needs of modern life. 

Each of our homes is a canvas for your creativity. Reserving a home during the early stage of the build process affords you the freedom to choose your own fixtures and fittings from our extensive range, allowing you to incorporate your own personality to your new home so you can start enjoying it from the day you move in.
