Your step-by-step guide to buying with Hive Homes
Step 1

If you’re working out your home buying budget, it’s useful to know how much savings and mortgage you’ll need. Schemes like Help to Buy can really make buying a home more affordable than you think! Use our mortgage and help-to-buy calculator to work out what you’ll need so that you can make the move that’s right for you.

Step 2

We’re here to help you choose the perfect home for you, that ticks all the boxes and will meet your needs now and for years to come! Browse our range of developments today and choose a home that’s just right for you. Our sales team will be able to talk you through all our available homes and purchase options.

Step 3

Found the perfect Hive Home for you? It’s time to consider your mortgage options, and an independent financial advisor or your bank can advise you on what’s best for you and your financial situation. From this, you’ll get a mortgage in principal which summarises how much your lender is happy to loan you subject to more detailed checks.

Step 4

It’s time to reserve your home and appoint a solicitor! Your experienced, friendly Sales Advisor will book your reservation appointment, explain the fee and guide you through the homebuying process.

Step 5

Our legal team will draw up a contract and send it to your solicitor. They’ll get to work and begin the ‘enquiries and searches stage’, and when ready, contracts will be exchanged and a completion date agreed.  Completion takes place once your lender has released funds to your solicitors and they have sent them to ours. When it does, we can hand over the keys to your brand new home.

Step 6

At last! Moving-in day is in sight. Your dream Hive Home awaits and on this day all you have to do is unpack all the boxes, and start making your new house a home.

Step 7

Hive Homes will be by your side all the way; from your first enquiry, to welcoming you into your new home and any after care. We’ll provide you with a handy Home guide with lots of useful information and tips about your new home. You can also contact us if any issues arise that you are uncertain about, and we will do our very best to help resolve these.
