A Step-by-Step Guide to Buying a Lancet Home

A Step-by-Step Guide to Buying a Lancet Home

When it comes to buying a new home, you can expect a seamless experience from Lancet Homes. Renowned for our commitment to quality and customer satisfaction, we’re proud to make the home buying process a smooth and stress-free experience.  

To help you navigate the buying process, we have put together a step-by-step guide, offering insights and tips to help turn your dream of owning a new home into reality.  

Step one: Research and explore 

The first step in your journey to owning a Lancet home is to visit our website to explore our range of available new homes in the North West.  

Explore the various locations, house types and features offered by Lancet Homes to find the perfect house for you. This initial research will help you narrow down your preferences and decide what property suits your family. 

For those on the start of their home buying journey, we also recommend taking a deeper dive into the new home buying process so that you have a clearer idea of what to expect, and when.  

Step two: Sort your finances 

Sorting your finances is an important step in the home buying process. Begin by gaining an understanding of what you can afford and get an AIP (agreement in principle) from your mortgage provider. If you do not have AIP, don’t worry – Lancet Homes can provide details of our recommended independent financial advisors. 

This is also a good time to find out more about our new home buying schemes, such as Assisted Move and Part Exchange which have been selected to help make your move even easier.  

Step three: Visit the sales office and show home 

Seeing is believing, and we always encourage potential buyers to visit our sales offices and show homes. This gives you a firsthand look into the quality of our new build homes, the finishes, and the atmosphere of the development. 

Visiting our sales office gives you the opportunity to chat with a knowledgeable advisor who can answer all of your questions. 

Step four: Reserve your home 

Once you’ve found your perfect Lancet home, the next step is to reserve it. This part involves paying a reservation fee and signing a reservation form to secure your chosen property.  

This step also ensures that your property is taken off the market while you finalise the details and start the process of buying the property.  

Step five: Personalise your home  

Depending on the stage of construction of your new home, you may be able to personalise it with our range of choices and upgrades. You will be able to discuss this with your sales executive. 

Step six: Secure your mortgage and conveyancing 

With your home reserved, it’s time to start the mortgage process. As well as securing the mortgage offer you had agreed in principle, you must also appoint a conveyancing solicitor.  

Your conveyancing solicitor acts as your legal representative, handling searches and all the paperwork involved in your home purchase.  

Step seven: Complete the process  

The final step is to complete the purchase of your Lancet home. This involves finalising the legal aspects, such as exchanging contracts, where the house legally becomes yours. This is also when you will pay your deposit.  

After your solicitor has successfully transferred the funds for completion, our dedicated site team will promptly reach out to congratulate you and confirm the arrangements for you to collect the keys to your brand new home.  

Step eight: Moving in  

The moment has arrived – it's time to move in and begin the journey of transforming your new house into a home. You also have seven days to note any snags, this provides a valuable opportunity to send feedback to us regarding any minor issues that may need attention.  

For any post-sale queries and concerns, you can take advantage of our after-sales service. Your feedback ensures these details are addressed promptly, which contributes to the overall satisfaction of your new home.
