Secure your perfect home

We always offer our new homes for sale before they have been built, allowing you to pick the apartment that suits you best.

We generally allow people to reserve their desired apartment several months before construction has been completed. This gives you plenty of time to plan the sale or rental of your existing home. 

Reserving is made easy by our friendly and knowledgeable team, who can visit you at home to discuss the reservation – always at a time that suits you. 

Your consultant will stay in touch with you throughout the buying process, helping you select your ideal home, helping with legal processes, and arranging our free Lifestory Homemoves service. Our panel of solicitors can help to make the move smoother, and we contribute to your legal fees. 

Benefits of Reserving Off-Plan: 

  • You have ‘first pick’ to choose the apartment best suited to you.
  • Our professional and friendly consultants will visit you at your home, at a time that suits you, to discuss and formalise your reservation. Further home visits will be arranged to progress with the reservation, all at a time that suits you.
  • Regular contact with our friendly consultants throughout the reservation process, from helping you to choose the apartment best suited to you, the reservation itself, choosing your solicitor and estate agent, the removals process and finally exchange of contracts. Exchange of contracts is typically three months prior to completion.
  • We offer ‘panel solicitors’ to help make your move smoother, and we also contribute to your legal fees if you choose to use them.
  • Time to plan your move into your new apartment, including downsizing and removals. We offer a free national moving service called Lifestory Homemoves, which is designed to assist you throughout the process and make your move as stress-free as possible.

  • We provide ‘sample boards’ to show you what to expect from the fixtures and fittings within your new apartment.
  • A visit to nearby development may be possible to get a real insight of what you can expect from your new apartment.
  • An opportunity to attend ‘meet your neighbours’ events, free of charge with complimentary food and drink, and a chance to meet your new friends ahead of your move in.

Mrs Peters reserved her perfect apartment off-plan, at our Hartley Wintney community in Hampshire:

“When I first visited the upcoming development at Hartley Wintney, I found it difficult to see past the builders, mud and all the work going on. Now, as I sit on my balcony looking over the beautifully landscaped gardens with a glass of wine, I realise I made the best decision in reserving early.”

Terry and Mary Wilkins, married for 53 years, are enjoying their next chapter at a beautiful apartment in Wokingham:

“We'd been looking for the right place for a year or so. With no family close by, we were looking for a development near to where we currently live so we can remain close to friends. It was visiting the Renaissance community at Haywards Heath that really sold it to us – the quality of build, the style of furnishings and the space were all first class. We were there five minutes and turned to each other and said: 'We could definitely move into a Renaissance apartment!' We are thrilled with our apartment and the additional lifestyle of Renaissance living. We had 40 years of memories in our current house and are now building new ones at Fleur-de-Lis Wokingham.”
