Buying Information

Helping you to buy a home

 

We appreciate that buying your home is one of the most important transactions you’ll ever make. And, from our local knowledge and extensive database, we’re confident of finding you a property that meets your requirements, whether for a home or a 'buy to let' investment.


Our up to the minute website will give you as much information as possible prior to viewing. Through powerful, easy search functions you’ll find photographs, floor plans, in-depth local information, Google maps and online brochures. And when you register with us, you can request instant notification via email as new properties become available.

 

Registering your details

 

Your first step is to register your details - by email, telephone, in person or by completing the online form below. This is so we can identify your particular requirements and then contact you with suitable properties as soon as they come to our notice. 

 

Viewing potential properties

 

Our staff can arrange viewings for any day of the week and giving us feedback after you’ve seen a property will help us both narrow down and speed up your search.

 

 
Making an offer

 

Once you’ve found a property you like, we’ll pass on your offer to the vendor - verbally and in writing. But until a contract has been signed, there are no legal obligations on either side.

Obviously the final decision on price is strictly between you and the seller. What we do – transparently and honestly - is strive to negotiate a deal that keeps both parties happy.
 

Progressing the sale

 

As soon as you’ve agreed to buy a property, you should lose no time in appointing a solicitor to carry out the conveyancing, and contacting your mortgage lender so they can process your application and carry out their valuation.

 We liaise with all parties during the transaction to help your purchase proceed as smoothly as possible, and can recommend a local solicitor if you don’t already have one.

 

Exchanging contracts

 

When all your solicitor’s questions have been answered, your mortgage offer is in place and everyone in the chain is ready, you can exchange and sign contracts. This is when you pay the deposit (usually 5%-10% of the purchase price) to your solicitor and finalise a completion date.

 

Completion

 

 On completion, your solicitor transfers the money to the seller’s solicitors. They’ll release the keys… and you can move in to your new home.
