Buyers Guide from Alan Cooper Estates
  • paragraph

    image cannot be displayed

    Step 1: What can you afford?

    Deciding to buy a home is exciting! Before you get carried away with property searches, it's best to know just how much you can afford to spend and what you truly require. An independent financial advisor or personal bank is the perfect start. When your circumstances have been evaluated, you'll have a mortgage offer agreed in principle and this puts you in a strong buying position, sending the signal to sellers that your finances are in order. Please check our Additional Services page for Mortgage advice.

    Step 2: Register for instant property alerts

    Once you have established what you can afford it's time to start looking for a property. Register with us on our website or call us on Nuneaton (024) 7634 9336. In addition, Alan Cooper uploads all of its properties for sale to the leading portals like Rightmove, but you'll find them on our website first! In fact, when you're registered you'll be the first to know when a suitable property becomes available. There's always a place for sending property details out to you in the post but Alan Cooper understands that you'll want the newest details sent as quickly as possible. Properties that meet your requirements will be sent via email, so you can browse on the move.

    Step 3: Let the viewings begin

    The buying market is always competitive so Alan Cooper encourages an early viewing to secure that dream home. We'll do everything possible to ensure you see a property within the quickest time frame. We like to be on hand during viewings to answer any questions and to negotiate any difficult areas. We know you lead a busy life, so we're open six days a week to make sure property viewing is a pleasure, not a pain. Opening hours: 9am-5:30pm Monday to Friday and 9am-3pm on Saturdays.

    Step 4: Make an offer

    Everyone gets excited when they find their dream home. The next thought is: secure the property! Let us know which property you'd like to put an offer in on as soon as possible, and we'll work with you to advise how best to present your offer. Once an offer has been formulated, we'll put the figure forward both verbally and in writing, stating any special conditions of the offer. Be ready with your mortgage offer in principle, as this will put you in a strong buying position. There are no legal obligations on either side until contracts are signed.

    Step 5: Offer agreed

    Even when an offer is agreed, we will still be working hard to progress the purchase. We will: Prepare a memorandum of sale. Write to all parties to confirm the agreed price. Ask you to confirm your solicitor's and mortgage broker's details. Now is the time to instruct your chosen solicitor as they will need to oversee all the legal aspects of your purchase. You'll also need to contact your mortgage provider and give them the full details of your purchase in order for your loan to proceed.

    Step 6: Instruct a solicitor

    A good solicitor can be instrumental to a smooth move. Alan Cooper advises choosing a company that specialises in conveyancing but if you're in any doubt, we can arrange a free quotation, with no obligation.

    Step 7: And now the legal bit - Conveyancing

    A solicitor will ensure that you legally own the property you are buying and will oversee the transfer of funds from buyer to seller. Your solicitor will also become a key mediator, along with your estate agent. They will:

    • Raise any enquiries on receipt of the draft contract from the sellers Solicitor
    • Request their own local searches
    • Refer to the information already provided in the sellers pack
    • Agree a date for exchange of contracts

     

    Step 8: Survey and mortgage offer

    The property you want to buy might look good on the outside but only a surveyor can tell if it is structurally sound and worth the asking price. A property survey will be booked on behalf of the mortgage lender, and a surveyor will visit the home you want to purchase to fully evaluate the building and state of repair.The surveyor will file a report that goes to the mortgage lender and to you, the buyer. It will flag up areas of concern and you can decide on whether to alter your offering depending on the content of the report. Once your mortgage lender has received its copy of the report, it will issue a formal mortgage offer - a copy will be sent to you and your solicitor. Make sure you sign this and return it as soon as possible. There are no legal obligations until contracts are signed.

    Step 9: Exchange of contracts

    Once all enquiries have been answered and a formal mortgage offer received by the seller's solicitor, exchange of contracts can take place. The next step involves your deposit. Upon receipt of a contract signed by both parties, your deposit will be telegraphically transferred or paid by banker's draft to the sellers. This is a real milestone in your property purchase and you can agree a completion date with the sellers - the date on which you hope to move in - once the money has cleared.

    Step 10: Completion

    Once the funds have cleared into the sellers solicitors account, we can hand over the keys to you - the new home owners!

    Energy Performance Certificate (EPCs)
    image cannot be displayed

    Energy Performance Certificates (EPCs) give information on how to make your home more energy efficient and reduce your energy costs. All homes bought, sold or rented require an EPC. Find out what EPCs look like and what they contain.

    What they tell you

    • Information on your home's energy use and typical energy costs
    • A recommendation report with suggestions to reduce energy use and save money
    • Details of the person who carried out the EPC assessment

     

    Energy use and potential savings EPCs carry ratings that compare the current energy efficiency and estimated costs of energy use with potential figures that your home could achieve. Potential figures are calculated by estimating what the energy efficiency and energy costs could be if energy saving measures were put in place.

    The rating measures the energy efficiency of your home using a grade from 'A' to 'G'. An 'A' rating is the most efficient, while 'G' is the least efficient. The average efficiency grade to date is 'D'. All homes are measured using the same calculations, so you can compare the energy efficiency of different properties.

    The recommendation report EPCs also provide a detailed recommendation report showing how you could reduce the amount of energy you use and your carbon dioxide emissions. The report lists:

    • suggested improvements, like fitting loft insulation
    • possible cost savings per year, if the improvements are made
    • how the recommendations would change the energy efficiency rating of the property
    • which improvements may be eligible for funding through the Green Deal

     

    You don't have to act on the recommendations in the recommendation report. However, if you decide to do so, it could make your property more attractive for sale or rent by making it more energy efficient.

    If you wish for us to arrange an EPC for you, we can instruct an energy assessor that we can instruct on your behalf.
