Buying Process

The buying process

The buying process usually takes between 6 weeks to 8 months

Arrange mortgage in principle - speak to high brokers or your bank and find out what you can borrow and how much you need to invest

Find a property - research the area with good revenue if you are looking to buy to let or look for good amenities i.e. transport, schools etc if looking to buy to live. Make a list of agents.

Make an offer - tell the seller/ agent what you are willing to pay

Offer accepted – book a surveyor to check the condition of the property

Instruct solicitor - to start the sales process, to check any legal issues and to meet legal requirements

Exchange contract -pay a deposit on the property to secure it

Completion - the balance cash is paid, the keys and deed are handed over to you. You are now the legal owner of the property
