Once you have placed the booking deposit of €5,000 on your new home you should do two things:

Firstly, advise your solicitor so that he or she will be expecting the documentation from the developer’s solicitor. You will be given contact details for the developer’s solicitor when you book the house.

Secondly, inform the financial institution with whom you have arranged a mortgage that you have placed a deposit on a home.

The Help to Buy incentive is designed to assist first-time buyers with obtaining the deposit required to purchase a new house.

Jana Developments Ltd is a qualifying contractor registered with the Revenue to allow you avail of the Help to Buy Scheme.  For more information visit the Revenue website.

The legal formalities and your financial arrangements are processed during the reservation period. When your solicitor is satisfied with the results of his enquiries and you have your finance in place you will then be in a position to make a binding commitment to purchase, i.e. to exchange contracts. This exchange normally takes place within 21 days from issue of contracts to your solicitor. At this point your solicitor will ask you to pay the contract deposit of 10% of the purchase price (less the €5,000 you have already paid as a booking deposit). He then sends this to Jana Developments solicitor together with a contract signed by you.

The exchange of contracts is a legally binding document and neither party may change their mind from that time on without incurring further costs.

When your new home is complete, Jana Developments Solicitor will notify your solicitor who will ask you to arrange an inspection of the house. This is the “snagging” of the house and must be carried out and the report issued to Jana Developments within 10 days of you being notified to snag, otherwise snagging will be carried out only after the sale has been closed.

You will also need to arrange the final valuation of your house through your lending institution or mortgage broker. Please ensure this is processed immediately as it is often the cause of lengthy delays.

Under the terms of the contract, a period of fourteen days is normally allowed after your new home is completed, to enable financial completion to take place. This is to give time for you to carry out a final inspection and for your solicitor to gather the balance of the purchase money and documents together.

Please note that when you carry out your own inspection (or your surveyor carries one out for you) it is very important that we are notified immediately (by email to: [email protected]) if you feel there are some items which require attention. Jana Developments will attend to this list and request you to do a final inspection when the list has been attended to.

Failure to close the sale within the period allowed for in the contract will result in interest being charged on a daily basis.

Services such as electricity and gas are provided to your home and will be connected by the Developer prior to the sale closing. Just prior to closing the Developer will take a meter reading to close both accounts, at this time your contact details will be given to the provider so you can be contacted to prevent services being disconnected. You can choose your own provider if you do not wish to set up an account with the current provider. Ducting will be provided for fixed line services.
