Find out your price range:
If you are a first time buyer or not subject to selling a property this will depend on your personal circumstances and criteria such as income, deposit amount, level of debt, etc. If you are subject to selling your property it is always a good idea to find out its current value.

Get a current market appraisal of your property:

Make an offer:
Once you have found your dream home it is time to put in an offer. We will forward your offer to the seller in writing and verbally, and let them know of any particular conditions you might have. At this point you may be asked to show evidence that you have spoken to a mortgage advisor or provide proof of funding, dependant on the property and our instructions from the vendor. It's now time to cross your fingers and wait and see if your offer is accepted!
Congratulations, your offer has been accepted! Now you will be asked to provide some details & documentation so we may formally agree the property to you and get the legal and financial balls rolling. These will include documents such as copies of your ID - normally driving licence or passport; Proof of current address - normally a bill or bank statement; A pre-contractual deposit in some instances, your appointed solicitor and mortgage advisors details.
Appoint a solicitor & Apply for a mortgage:
Now that you have a property Sale Agreed it is time for your appointed mortgage advisor or bank to submit your mortgage / co-ownership application. Your lendor will then instruct a valuation / survey of the property on your behalf to ensure there are no structural issues and that you are paying a fair price.
This process normally takes around 3 - 6 weeks in total dependant on your individual circumstances, chosen lendor and whether or not you are subject to co-ownership. If there are no issues your solicitor will then be issued with a mortgage offer.
Now that you have a mortgage offer your appointed solicitor will make legal questions on your behalf - this can include queries about rights of way, warranties, council certificates and boundaries - all to protect your interests! If satisfied with the responses they will arrange for contracts to be signed by both the vendor and yourself and for you, if appropriate, to provide the remainder of your contractual deposit.
A completion date will then be agreed, monies will be transferred to the vendors solicitor and once cleared we will hand over the keys to your new home!
