Buying a new home is an exciting time for anyone. In order for the process to run smoothly, it’s important you have a solicitor with market-leading expertise and outstanding client service to get you moving.
That's where Switalskis comes in. Whether we've been recommended by a housebuilder or you found us yourself, our new build team is ready to give you the help and peace of mind you need, right from the get-go.
We are independent experts, led by fully qualified solicitors, and have an entire department dedicated to helping you buy your new home. Our department is headed by our director, Richard Wisnia , who brings over two decades of experience in helping the buyers of brand-new homes.
We understand that this is more than just a transaction for you: it's a big life moment. That's why we aim to make the legal side of things as smooth as possible. We'll break down any complicated legal language, keep you in the loop and work to make sure everything goes off without a hitch.
From your first contact with us, we know you will feel confident that we’re the right people to help you. We invest time to discuss the things that are important to you, make sure that you’re looked after properly, and that our service is delivered to you in the way you need it to be.
We’ll make sure you understand the home buying process, what you can expect from us as your solicitors, and how you can help to keep things running smoothly.
Our team will translate jargon into plain English and make sure that the paperwork is right. We take on the bulk of the legal responsibility and work to the housebuilder’s timescales. You’ll be able to focus on things that really matter to you, like planning the move and choosing new furniture.
Every client is unique, and so is their home-buying experience. Our advice to you will be comprehensive, clear and tailored to you, so every decision you make is fully informed.
You’ll be regularly contacted and updated, and you’ll know when we need something from you.
With Switalskis, you’re not just getting a solicitor; you’re getting a brilliant team of people passionate about your purchase.

If you’re a first-time buyer or have never bought a brand-new home before, the legal processes involved are unique in many ways. There are many factors that buyers and sellers of second-hand properties won’t have to think about, so it’s important to do your research.

The first step is to get in touch with our team. When you contact us, whether by phone, email or our contact form, we’ll discuss your needs and situation, and send you a quote for our services.
If you have received a quote from us via our dedicated online portal, all you need to do is click ‘Accept Quote’. The process will then start straight away via the portal with full instructions about what you need to do next.
If you received your quote from a member of the team directly by email, simply reply to the team member who sent the email to confirm you’d like us to act on your behalf. We will then begin your process.
We’re often recommended by housebuilders because of our specialist expertise in this area of law, our outstanding client service and the strength of our reputation. We’re fully independent and work in strict accordance with our professional rules of conduct. That means that we only ever act in the best interests of our clients.
Throughout the process, you will be given the comprehensive advice you need in language you can understand, and the decisions you make as a client of our firm will always be fully informed.
The UK government’s New Homes Quality Code recognises the benefits of working with us - both to you and the housebuilders who recommended us. Thanks to our in-depth understanding of the housebuilder who gave you our information, our relationship with their legal team (whom we have usually dealt with over a number of years), and our knowledge of the development itself, we don’t need to raise title enquiries, which can save time.
This results in better communication with you, the housebuilder and their legal team, from start to finish.
Our team is on hand to provide you with a quote for the cost of our legal services. Our quotes are given without any obligation to use our services, though we hope we’ll make a big enough impression that you’ll want to work with us.
Even if you have been given our most up-to-date price guide by your housebuilder, we will need to make sure that you get the most accurate quote for your circumstances, as there are lots of factors in the conveyancing process that might affect the cost. To get a quote, get in touch today.
