Step three - instruct a legal representative

The instruction of your legal representative should take place immediately after you have reserved your Tilia home, the details of which are to be submitted to the sales advisor. This legal representative will undertake all the legal formalities and look after your interests throughout the buying process.

Step four - issue of draft contract, conveyance plan and any other required information to your legal representative

This is all the information specific to your plot.

Step five - the mortgage application

By now you will have been in contact with a financial advisor to discuss your affordability and suitable mortgage products, but you will now be required to formalise your application. This application will be specific to the property you are now purchasing. Please keep the Tilia Homes sales advisor informed of the progression of this process.

Step six – conduct a survey

When applying for your mortgage you will have paid your valuation fee. When the application has been processed an appointment will be made for the surveyor to come out and value the Tilia home you are purchasing.

Step seven - mortgage offer

Once the survey has been carried out, your mortgage offer will be issued. You will need to check this offer, sign it and return to your lender. Please ensure that both your legal representative and the onsite sales executive are aware of this.

Step eight – sign your contract

You will discuss the terms of the contract with your legal representative and determine how your deposit monies will be paid upon exchange of contracts, as well as upon completion. You will sign the contract documents in preparation for exchange.

Step nine - exchange of contracts

Your legal representative will exchange contracts and transfer the deposit to our solicitors. At this point both parties are legally bound by the terms of the contract and your deposit will be protected from exchange to completion by the NHBC Buildmark Cover. It protects you if the builder becomes insolvent, you will receive two years warranty cover from your builder and insurance cover from NHBC until the end of the policy.

Step ten - completion

Upon completion the remaining funds will be transferred to the developer and your keys to your new home can be released. You will now legally own your new Tilia Homes property.

All you have to do then is move in!
