You will find a summary timeline below of key stages of the home buying process. A more detailed timeline is available in the downloads section - at the end of this page.
This timeline will help you keep track of key dates and allow you to plan your move.
At the time of your reservation, you may have selected bespoke options and will have received information about availability. Note: these bespoke options, or selecting customised features, may affect your overall timeline.
If you reserved your new house with the following incentives:
Scottish Government’s Help to Buy scheme
Scottish Government’s First Home Fund scheme
Then your timeline will be slightly different to the one outlined - your Sales Advisor will guide you accordingly and provide the necessary information.
