The buying process
It is a common misconception that buying a home is always a very stressful and time consuming process. Many sources put the completion of the whole process at 6 months, and treat stress as inevitable, but at Redrow we do all we can to make sure that is not the case. Our Sales Team can put you in touch with recommended solicitors and New Build Mortgage Specialists to assist you throughout the house buying process and our Sales Consultants will always be on hand to help should you need it.
Solicitors are an essential part of the home buying process as they oversee the purchase of your new home and take care of all the legal aspects, ensuring everything goes as smoothly as possible. If you don’t already have a solicitor, our Sales Consultants can supply you with the details of some local independent firms who work with us regularly. This helps to make your move as straightforward as possible as our recommended solicitors are familiar with our process.
Mortgages and Insurance
It is now time for you make a formal application for a mortgage, should you need one, based on the price and details of your chosen home. Our Sales Consultants can put you in touch with a New Build Mortgage Specialist or, alternatively, you can get in contact with them directly as a member of My Redrow. You should also arrange the insurance of your new home at the same time as your mortgage. Building insurance is essential and all lenders will insist you have it in place from exchange of contracts.
Make your home your ownYou can now add your own personal touches to your new home by choosing from our range of kitchen units, bathroom fittings and more. In addition to our standard features you can also choose from any quality extras you would like to add, depending on the construction stage of your home. By becoming a member of My Redrow you can browse all of the available options and choose how you would like to personalise your home online, without having to visit a Sales Centre.
Exchange of contracts
The next stage in the home buying process is for the respective solicitors to exchange signed contracts and after doing so both parties are legally committed to the sale and purchase of the property. At this time you will also pay the exchange deposit for your new home to Redrow which is usually 10% of the final purchase price unless otherwise agreed. Once the contracts have been exchanged, we will keep you updated as to when your home will be completed and you should be able to move in.
