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!
