Find the place you Belong.
Make a sensible offer based on your circumstances.
Get your offer to acceptance, compromise is often required.
Make sure you apply for your mortgage promptly; it can take a while for your application to be approved formally. Need help, just ask.
Decide which survey you might want. They range from a simple valuation to a detailed building survey costing much more.
If you need one we can help.
Many solicitors will not ask you for money for your searches until they have received a mortgage offer from your bank or building society – this can cause a delay.
Solicitors ask the local authority to comment on planning and building regulations, amongst other things. This can take up to three weeks.
The sellers solicitor provides a contract for the buyers solicitor, from which they raise enquiries on the buyers behalf.
Once the solicitor has your searches, your mortgage offer, and any pre-contract enquiry answers, they will invite you to sign your contract and pay your deposit monies.
