Reserving your new Eccleston home
You’ve found your dream Eccleston home! So what happens next?
We sell our new homes in order of the route that we build them and plots are released for sale at various times to
follow this route and ahead of them being built.
They are sold on a first come, first served basis and purchasers are required to exchange contracts within 6 weeks
(42 days) with the appropriate 5% or 10% deposit. This usually means that you will need to be either a first time
buyer, have your current property sold subject to contract, be a none dependant purchaser, or a cash purchaser.
If you have a property to sell, you could consider using one of our home sale assistance schemes, EasyMove or
1. Mortgage in Principle
In order to reserve your new home, you’ll need a Mortgage in Principle, or Decision in Principle (DIP) from your mortgage provider. Based on basic information, such as your income and outgoings, your lender will provide you with a certificate or statement that confirms ‘in principle’ the amount of money they will lend you. If you need help obtaining a Mortgage in Principle we have access to independent new homes mortgage specialists who are able to provide you with free advice on the range of new homes mortgages available. Please ask your Sales Consultant for further details.
2. Proof of identity
As you’re undertaking a financial transaction with us, we’ll need to see a copy of your passport (for non-UK citizens also a copy of a valid visa) plus proof of your address – this could be from a recent utility bill or driving license. Your Sales Consultant can provide you with a list of all acceptable forms of proof of address.
3. Reservation fee
We ask for £1000 reservation fee to secure your new home. If you’re purchasing using the Help to Buy scheme, it’s just £500. The reservation fee forms part of the overall price of the property and is credited upon Legal Completion.
4. Reservation meeting
To secure your new Eccleston home, we will set up a reservation meeting. It gives us the opportunity to take you through your reservation paperwork, share the technical drawings and run through the finer details about your new home and the buying process. And of course, the most exciting bit, you can sign your formal reservation confirmation documents meaning your dream Eccleston home is off the market! Please allow at least an hour for this meeting, this gives you time to ask any questions you may have too.
