New Build: Enjoy the unpredictability

In a fast-paced, ever-changing, deadline-driven market like New Build, you and your clients need to be ready to go when the time is right.

In other words, you can’t afford to sit around waiting. By the time you’ve started from scratch and got the offer across the line, your client’s dream home could be gone.

That’s why we’ve designed our New Build proposition around quick decisions and long offer periods. That includes:

  • 9 month offers as standard with 3 month extensions available, subject to criteria
  • Underwriting all fully packaged New Build applications within a target time of 48 hours
  • Any additional requested documents reviewed within a target time of 24 hours
  • No charge for a standard valuation for mortgage purposes, which is instructed on day 1.

Committed to First Time Buyers

We’re passionate about helping the next generation of homeowners – and helping people into affordable, greener houses – and our approach to New Build has been designed with this in mind.
