New Homes It's not hard to see the appeal of a new home. A space no one has occupied before, designed and built just for you and furnished exactly the way you want it. Howkins & Harrison has considerable experience across the many specialist areas of knowledge applicable to the planning, designing and selling of new homes. We work with a wide range of developers, from individuals undertaking their own self-build projects, to local builders and national house-building companies. The first task is to secure a suitable site. We can assist with your search for a site or building plot. Hand-in-hand with that of course, comes planning permission. Our highly qualified planning department have the knowledge, contacts and wisdom of experience to be able to advise you on every administrative, legal and tactical aspect of planning applications. You may well need an architect. We have long standing partnerships with architects who've designed and built every type of residential dwelling. For those who are selling newly-built homes we offer a full sales service, assisting with marketing and advertising, providing expert accompanied viewings and acting for the seller to negotiate the best possible sale price.
