New Build Conveyancing

Buying a new build property from a housebuilder is quite different to buying an existing property. There are different issues and timescales, so our specialist team of experts will work for you to ensure that the purchase of your new build home proceeds as quickly and smoothly as possible.

Specialist New Build Departments

Howells is one of the few firms who have multiple new build departments in their conveyancing branches. At Howells, our new build departments consist of experienced and specialist new build solicitors that will give you a service second to none. We work with all major developers, both nationally and locally, with the majority of new build sites across South Wales and the South West recommending us. With offices in Cardiff, Newport, Swansea, Caerphilly, and Bridgend, wherever you are, one-to-one advice will be on hand at all times.

How Can We Help?

We can help you in the following areas of the new build market:
  • Plot purchases.
  • Part exchanges.
  • Buy to lets.
  • Unrivalled experience in 28 day exchange.
  • Extensive local knowledge.
  • Discounts available for related sales/part exchanges.
  • Fixed price guarantee – know exactly how much your conveyancing costs will be before you get started.
  • We work with developers on a daily basis and understand their timescales.
  • We completed the first Help to Buy case in Wales and helped to draft the initial paperwork. Read More >
We have no formal contracts with developers, yet due to our track record over the past 30 years, we are recommended by the majority of developers and national builders across South West England and South Wales.

Help to Buy

At Howells we fully support the Help to Buy scheme. Howells Solicitors were the first firm to complete a Help to Buy transaction in Wales. In addition to this, nearly 30% of the first, 1,000 homes on the scheme were completed by Howells. Read More >
