Course Acting for a Buyer on a New Build: Pitfalls and Tips


This course is aimed at the buyer’s solicitor who receives a “mountain” of paperwork from the developer. This is especially true when the property is part of a multi-plot estate. The developer will invariably impose an exchange deadline, the client has paid a reservation deposit and the pressure is on.

Whether it is plot 1 of 2 or 49 of 400 there are points of similarity and this course will provide practical guidance and updates on the documents you are likely to receive and the statutory frameworks applicable to them as well as ways to improve your investigations and reporting given the need for fixed fees in this area.

This course will include:

  • S38, S104 and s 106 Agreements- how is my client affected?
  • NHBC and similar schemes- what do I need to do?
  • CML requirements- what do I need to report?

  • Planning- what is CIL and will it affect my client?
  • Covenants and restrictions- ensuring they affect the Property?
  • What do I tell the client?

This course is aimed at all residential practitioners whatever their level of experience or years of qualification. For the more junior members of the team it will provide an overview of the issues common to most new builds and it will provide a refresher for the more experienced practitioner.

You may also be interested in attending: Conveyancing Searches and Enquiries: Best Practice which takes place at the same venue in the afternoon.
