    Hi all,

    We are first time buyers it's fair to say with limited knowledge on the whole process (thank goodness for this forum). So we reserved a new build flat with Miller homes in December 2015, we are nearly there with exchange (just sent all documents signed back to solicitors). Our flat is supposed to be ready on the 24th of June 2016. Went to check the progress the other day, the have just finished the outer shell of 2nd floor (it's a 3 storey build) so looking good for time scales atm. We have our options meeting on Sunday to choose all the upgrades. We have to pay 25% of the price upfront and the rest payable prior to completion. I thought I'd make this thread because a- I'm impatient and wish it was all just ready now, can't stop thinking about it. B- because throughout this forum I've read lots of ?'s re new build and some not so nice stories of things that can go wrong, so thought a bit of support may be nice. c- and lastly just to share others experiences and the long wait with. So who's up for joining me in the wait

    So mortgage offer is in and as expected Taylor Wimpey wouldn't budge on price but did throw in a decent incentive package. Meant to be exchanging contracts at the end of the month but my solicitor hasn't received any paperwork from TW yet so can't see that happening! Good luck all. X

    What is everyones expected completion date?

    We got a letter last week to say we are at the foundation stage, expected completion between 11th Aug and 3rd Nov.

    Took my Aunt and Gran to see the showhome in our style house and they both really liked it. I just can't wait to be in now!

    31st May at the moment. I'm still expecting it to be pushed back into June. It was meant to be next week for a while.
