Buying your new home

So you've found your dream Astrum Home...


We want to make the process as simple as possible...

Follow our home buying guide to find detailed information about the process of buying your home and to learn about the services we offer: 

Reserve your home

Found "the one"? Reserve your plot through our estate agent partner and start your home move journey.



Time to instruct a solicitor to oversee the purchase of your new home. Your solicitor will carry out searches, review contract documentation and co-ordinate fund transfers as well as giving you advice about your purchase. 


Mortgage and insurance

If you need a mortgage you should apply as early as possible. Your lender may require your identification documents, pay information, bank statements and other documentation to approve your application. You will also need to arrange buildings insurance. Once contracts are exchanged, you must have insurance in place as you are legally responsible for your home.


Exchange of contracts

Once the legal documentation and finance is in place, exchange of contracts can take place. Make sure you understand all relevant details of the contract as explained by your solicitor. 

At this point, the transaction becomes legally binding and you will pay a 10% deposit (unless otherwise agreed) for the property. We will then keep you updated regarding the progress of your property and let you know when completion will take place.
