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!

Highly Recommended Leaders Estate Agency, It is our first time moving out and within our first day viewing we managed to find a property we loved.  Hannah was a pleasure to work with and made the process very straightforward along with keeping in touch and providing regular updates. She is a credit to the business.

Currently in the process of buying a property. Dan has been absolutely delightful to deal with so far. A lovely guy who was easy to get on with, and very professional as well. We are finding the process easy, quick and enjoyable.

Absolutely amazing!! Can't thank the team enough for going above and beyond in the purchase of our home. Professional and honest through the entire process and chased all levels of the chain to ensure we knew exactly what was going on. In desperate times of pure frustration amongst the chain, Leaders were proactive in getting things sorted acting more like a Solicitor!
