When looking for your new home, the process can sometimes be a daunting task, below are some tips to help you in your search.
Before you commence with viewings, you should speak to a mortgage broker to assess your circumstances, what mortgage products are available to you and gain an understanding of how
much you can borrow. If you like, we can put you in touch with our recommended mortgage broker, who is independent and has access to the entire mortgage market, ensuring you find the best deals available.
It is advisable to register your details with us and even set up a property alert with Rightmove & Zoopla, enabling us to keep you updated should something come to market that matches your criteria.
Once you know your budget, the area you're focusing on & the style of property you desire, you can begin organising viewings. Our advice would be, view as much as you can, as this will help you find what is most important to you & help ensure you find the perfect property.
Once you have found the ‘perfect’ property, make your offer as soon as you can. Remember when submitting your offer to include your mortgage brokers details or better still, provide your mortgage agreement in principle and your conveyancing details (if you have any) to prove you’re serious and are able to proceed. If your offer is subject to any conditions, be clear on these when submitting your offer to avoid any confusion later on in the process.
Once your offer has been accepted you will need to provide your conveyancers details. If you don't have one already in place, ask us for a quote, we can provide you with a free, no obligation quotation over the phone, via email or in the post. The conveyancing process can be complex and time frames can vary from property to property, we like to estimate between 8 - 12 weeks, but of course this can take less or more time depending on the chain length or property in question.
