Offer

Step 5: Make your offer

Congratulations – you’ve found your dream home! When making an offer, consider competition from other buyers as well as how far you can stretch your budget.

Survey

Step 6: Arrange a survey

Most mortgage lenders insist on a Mortgage Valuation, but we a suggest you also arrange a HomeBuyer report or Building Survey, so you know exactly what you’re buying.

Mortgage

Step 7: Settle your mortgage arrangements

With the help of your conveyancer, check through your Mortgage Offer carefully and put life and building insurances in place, to cover the loan should you need it.

Exchange

Step 8: Exchange contracts and complete!

Once you have exchanged contracts, you are legally bound to finalise the purchase. Agree on a completion date and the property will soon be your new home!

We have just bought a house through Leaders - from the start they were fantastic, quick responses, always keeping us updated, and I felt completely reassured that they were doing their absolute best to help us achieve our end goal. Absolutely faultless, comprehensive and enthusiastic service, and whilst extremely professional, we also had a laugh too! We would not hesitate to use Leaders in the future for our own sale and could not recommend Leaders enough! A special thank you to Chris Grace and Joseph!

I found Lucy to be very helpful & friendly & very professional when dealing with our paper work towards our move. I wouldn't hesitate to use their services again if needed. If asked by anyone, I would highly recommend Leaders Estate Agents.

Dominic and Beth have been amazing whilst helping me find a house to buy. They've been professional yet friendly from the start and have made the process far less stressful than I anticipated. Highly recommended.
