YOUR MORTGAGE AGREEMENT

When it comes to purchasing your new home, we would always recommend to seek professional financial advise from your bank or prospective lender. This will identify how much you are able to borrow and you will be provided with a mortgage agreement in principle.

FINDING A PROPERTY AND HAVING YOUR OFFER ACCEPTED

When arranging viewings to find your new property, we will always encourage you to try and see as many as you can that match your criteria and never rush you into making a decision. When making an offer, a decision in principle is key, this will let the agent know you have funding in place and can proceed quickly.

INSTRUCTING THE RIGHT SOLICITOR

There are many solicitor firms that offer a conveyancing service to people buying and selling property. We would always recommend to work with a firm that gives personal service and good customer care to ensure there are no delays in the process. Should you require us to, we can refer you to a professional firm that we recommend.

SURVEY

When purchasing any property we would always recommend to have a survey carried out. Should you be using a mortgage, a survey will be a requirement of the lender before they release funds. We will always attend surveys to ensure surveyors have all the information they require to complete their report, thus speeding the process up.

EXCHANGING CONTRACTS

This is the time when you are required to sign the contract and exchange with the seller. Upon exchange the purchaser will have to pay a deposit, usually 10% of the purchase price. Once exchange takes place, both parties are both committed to the transaction.

COMPLETION

Upon completion, the balance of the funds is due and once the goes through, you will now be the legal owner of your new property. The stamp duty land tax will also be due at this point if applicable. You will be handed keys and the deeds to the property and will be able to proceed to move into your new home.

The above should be taken as a brief summary. For further information or any queries please contact us and we will be more than happy to discuss any of the process in more detail.
