Buying Your Pure Home
Preparing for Completion
Once our legal representatives has confirmed to your solicitor (who has then confirmed to you) that your new home is ready for legal completion and occupation you can begin making arrangements for your big day.
Inspections and passes
Prior to legal completion our legal representatives will supply your solicitor with a cover note from the Local Authority Building Control. This confirms your new home meets all the rigorous industry construction standards and building regulations and has been inspected and passed. This cover note is required for a mortgage lending to release your mortgage funds.
A final inspection of your new home is undertaken by a member of a build team. They will check that all appliances and systems are operating correctly and that your new home is finished to our high standards. It will then receive its quality assurance pass which confirms the home is clean and ready for you to move straight in to.
Our build staff will tell our legal representatives that your new home is ready to be presented to you.
We will also provide you with:
Energy Performance Certificate: This certificate will be available if the new home has been built and is ready for completion. If it is not fully constructed a Predicted Energy Assessment will be provided at this stage, giving estimated information.
Our aim is to give you time to plan your move and whenever possible we will give you as much notice as we can of your moving in day.
However there are instances when you may exchange contracts ‘on notice’ – that is without a fixed legal completion date because your new home is not fully built. Once your new home is ‘build complete’ and has passed its building standards inspection, our legal representatives will ‘serve notice’ on your solicitor. The ‘notice’ confirms that your new home is ready to move into and a completion date can be agreed between you, us and the legal teams.
This notice period allows you time to make your final arrangements to move and confirm exact timings. It enables your solicitor to complete all the remaining legalities and request the mortgage funds, in accordance with your mortgage providers requirements.
If you do exchange contracts ‘on notice’ your sales advisor will keep you fully informed and updated on the build progress of your new home between exchange of contracts and when ‘notice’ is servced.
The completion date is the day on which you become the proud owner of your new Pure home. It is often also referred to as ‘moving in’ day or ‘handover’ day. The completion date is when the balance of the purchase money is paid to us and legal ownership passes from us to you. If you are moving into your new home on this day we will arrange a time to meet you, welcome you, present you with the keys and arrange the handover inspection.
