Will I have a fixed completion date for a new build home?

This will depend on the stage of construction of the property. If building works have not yet started or are at a very early stage, you will be given an estimate of when the property is expected to be completed. As the property nears being finished, the developer will be able to fix a more accurate completion date.

You should remember that this is only an estimate and that sometimes delays can occur, for example due to bad weather. If you are buying a property that has already been built and is finished, then it is likely that the developer will be able to agree a fixed completion date at the time that the contract is exchanged.
