    Viewings

    Allow yourself enough time to travel between your appointments so that you arrive on time (you don't want to feel rushed when the next people turn up to view). Be aware if you are meeting an agent or the homeowner - your agent will probably be waiting outside for you but if it's a homeowner, they'll expect a knock at the door. Have a list of key questions prepared and don't be afraid to ask them - you may also want to write things down so you can remember key details. Remember you can always have a second viewing if required. Be prepared to give honest feedback about each property you visit.

    Making an offer

    Once you have found a suitable property, be confident about making an offer, don't delay as you could miss out. All offers will be communicated both verbally and in writing to the seller. Your ability to proceed and a copy of your Mortgage "Agreement In Principle" will help us present your offer in the best possible light.

    Instructing a solicitor

    Once your offer has been accepted, a Notification of Sale will be issued, to do this, you must have selected a solicitor. Without one, the agent will not able to write the letter and confirm the sale. At Bradford & Howley we recommend solicitors that have a proven track record for providing quality service and sound legal advice. Remember, the property will not come off the open market until a solicitor has been selected.

    Conveyancing process

    Your chosen solicitor will carry out the conveyancing process on your behalf, they will review the contract, raise enquiries, request relevant searches, agree fixtures and fittings and discuss and agree dates for exchange and completion. At Bradford & Howley, we pride ourselves on sales progression, our dedicated team will liaise with all parties throughout the transaction, keeping everybody up to date. At the same time, you will need to submit your mortgage application and arrange any surveys.

    Exchange of contracts

    Once your solicitor has completed all the legal work, you have signed your contract and your mortgage offer has been issued, you are now ready to exchange. Typically, a 10% deposit is required to exchange and a completion date is agreed.

    Completion

    Completion is the day the property becomes yours and the day you can move in. The balance of the money will be transferred by the solicitor and once this has been confirmed, you can collect the keys to your new home.
