Buyers Guide to Buying A New Home...
  • paragraph

    Buying a new ouse can seem a daunting prospect and we hope this guide will provide a suitable structure to help you get the right property for you.

    Visit our office or register online for Hollis Morgan updates and we will email details of properties which we feel suit your requirements.

    Please find below a basic outline of the process but we always happy to elaborate - either call us or pop in for a cup of tea!

  • paragraph

    Viewing
    Unless otherwise stated, viewing a Hollis Morgan New Home will be like any other property viewing.
    Call up and we can organise a specific time to meet you on site or at the developments show home.
  • paragraph

    Making an offer
    Having identified a suitable property the next stage is to make an offer. Clearly, as agents for the seller our duty is to obtain the best possible price for our client. All offers will be submitted to our clients immediately and we will keep you advised whether or not they are acceptable. If we have an indication from the seller of a new figure which is acceptable you will be promptly informed.
  • paragraph

    Reservation
    When a price has been agreed, the likelihood is the developer will request a small reservation fee to take the property off the market and to reserve it.
    This is normally paid to the developer direct and will enable the purchase to begin.
  • paragraph

    Solicitors
    After agreeing a sale we will require the details of the legal firm acting for you, as quickly as possible, in order to minimise delays. We have excellent working relationships with many solicitors in the area and are happy to recommend a local firm.

    Typically, the developer will expect you to exchange contracts within 28 days from when the developers solicitor provide the initial paperwork to your solicitor.
  • paragraph

    Building Survey
    One of the most popular reasons why buyers prefer to buy a new build property is that there shouldn't be any maintenance issues to worry about so a full building survey probably won't be necessary.
    However, if you require some added piece of mind, we would be happy to put you in touch with some local surveyors who will be able to run through the various options for you.
  • paragraph

    Exchange & Completion
    Once everything is in place legally and financially, your solicitor will discuss with you what will be required to exchange.
    This a legally binding agreement where you and the developer are committed to buying and selling the property respectively.

    If the property build is finished, a specific date to complete would have been agreed on exchange.
    However, it is possible that your property hasn't yet been quite finished. If this is the case, then you will complete 'on notice' meaning you will be able to move in as soon as the property is ready.
  • paragraph

    Completion Day
    Our client's solicitor will ring us to allow keys to be released as soon as he is in receipt of the total funds and you are free to collect them from our Clifton office.

    2020 - Charity Review
    image cannot be displayed

    Andrew Morgan MBE reports on a memorable year... for all the wrong reasons.

    When I attended a drinks party for "All Aboard" on an idyllic sunny evening in late 2019 and saw people enjoying sailing in Bristol Docks and learned more of the work of this relatively unknown Charity none of us could have foreseen what a devastating year 2020 would turn out to be for us all and especially for the charity sector which relies so heavily on fund raising and donations. "All Aboard" aim is to provide water-based activities to everyone, especially those facing challenging circumstances, those with access needs or disabilities, people on low incomes and people with dementia. It is so rewarding to see the pleasure and sense of achievement on the faces of those people using these facilities, consequently, we were delighted to adopt them as the Hollis Morgan Charity for the year. For obvious reasons we were unable to organise any fundraising events but dedicated ourselves during this difficult time, not only to keep our firm prosperous and our own staff fully employed, but also to be able to make an end of year donation of £5,000 to "All Aboard" from our Buyer's Premiums. I am pleased to say we successfully achieved this.

    All my normal fixed charitable events were postponed until 2021 which was a great disappointment as I always look forward to these regular events in the annual calendar such as the feverishly exciting RWA secret postcard auction, the glamorous Ladies Long Table Lunch held at Penny Brohn, The festive Bristol Zoo's Gala evening as well as many others. 2021 is already promising to be a very busy year as we all work to help to re-build the charitable sector.

    It always leaves me humbled when I see the dedication of so many people working with charities and it is a great pleasure to be able support them by offering our free service as charity auctioneers at their fund raising events.
