PLS solicitors are new build specialists and boast some of the most experienced newbuild conveyancing teams in the UK. We have acted for thousands of buyers of new build homes over the last 10 years and continue to be recommended by housebuilders across the UK. 

Our objective is simple: to handle your transaction as quickly and efficiently as possible so that you experience minimal stress or anxiety. We actually want the conveyancing process to be an enjoyable and informative process for you so that you will hopefully come away from the transaction with a positive experience of buying your newbuild home.

Out of our offices in Manchester and London we act for UK and international clients.

We are on the preferred solicitors’ panel for most of the large  newbuild housebuilders and have forged strong working relationships with their legal teams. This in turn can help to ensure that your transaction is handled quickly and efficiently. We are experts in the complexities of new build and are fully aware of the tight deadlines which are imposed on you to exchange contracts with the Developer.

Selling Your Existing Property

We can act on the sale of your existing Property. You will have one direct point of contact from initial instruction. We will assist you with the completion of your initial forms and respond to any enquiries which have been raised by the Buyer’s solicitor. We will also exchange contracts with the Buyer’s solicitor and agree a suitable completion date which is acceptable to all parties.


We can also act if you have agreed that you will be part exchanging your property with the Developer or you have come to an agreement with another party . We have experience in dealing with the issues which can arise when part exchanging your property and therefore offer a comprehensive package of advice.

Our approach

With around 200 employees we have dedicated teams which concentrate solely on their specific areas of expertise. For example, we have newbuild teams which will only work on newbuild and residential teams which focus solely on non-newbuild/residential. The fee earner leading the team will generally be supported by three assistants. This means that the fee earner is not “bogged” down in administrative tasks and is available to speak with you and ensure that you feel supported every step of the way from inception to completion. We also utilise cutting-edge technology and innovative processes and systems to maximise efficiencies and deliver a consistent and first-class service to you.
