Step by step buying guide

Step  1  Arranging your mortgage

Before you begin your property search, it is advisable to arrange your finances and, if required, have a mortgage agreed in principle. This will confirm how much money you will have to fund the purchase, which will ultimately influence your property search.

Step  2  Register your interest

The first step to finding the right property is to register with us either by calling us on 01743 276666 or visiting our office where you can discuss your property requirements with one of our staff.

Step  3  Finding the right property

Once we have a clear understanding of your requirements you will receive a selection of properties that match your criteria. We can also keep you constantly up-to-date via email when the latest properties become available.

Step  4  Instructing a solicitor

The successful purchase of a property can be reliant on the instruction of an efficient and experienced solicitor.
We have a selection of tried and tested solicitors that are experts in property who we would be happy to recommend.

Step  5  Making an offer

Once you have identified a suitable property we will put your offer forward to the seller stating any special conditions of the offer. You may need to demonstrate, if requested, that you are able to proceed (e.g. provide evidence of your mortgage agreed in principle).
There are no legal obligations on either side until contracts are signed.

Step  6  Offer agreed

Once your offer is accepted we will do the following:
Prepare a memorandum of sale
Write to all parties to confirm the agreed price
Ask you to confirm your solicitor’s and mortgage broker’s details
