    offer making
    image cannot be displayed
    Once we've found a property for you that you like, discuss with us the offer you would like to make. We will ask you to confirm how you intend to fund the purchase of your property and availability of the deposit (usually 10% of purchase price). If you already have a mortgage arranged, we will ask you to provide an agreement in principle (AIP) document and we will require the details of your financial advisor so that we can clarify the time frame that will be involved for processing your application. If you are buying without a mortgage (a 'cash buyer') you will also need to provide evidence of finance.
  • paragraph

    What happens next
    the survey

    If you are buying with a mortgage, a survey of the property will be booked by a surveyor on behalf of the mortgage lender. This is to protect their interests by valuing the property and highlighting any major defects that would negatively affect the security of their loan..

    the mortgage offer

    Once your mortgage lender has received the survey report and are satisfied the loan amount is realistic given the valuation, they will issue a mortgage offer to your solicitor.

    the conveyancing

    Once an offer has been agreed between you and the seller, we will contact each party's solicitors to confirm the details of the sale. Offers are not legally binding until contracts have been exchanged. From now until exchange, you will need to be in close communication with your solicitor and our Sale Progression Manager will also be in regular contact with you and your solicitor, as well as the the sellers and their solicitor, and the solicitor of any other people in your chain to make sure that your purchase goes through and on time.

    exchange of contracts

    Exchanging contracts is the moment when the sale becomes legally binding on both sides. You can only exchange once you have paid a cleared deposit (usually 10% of the purchase price) to your solicitor's account. Your solicitor will tell you and us when contracts have been exchanged. The completion date is then set by mutual agreement and is also contractually binding.

    Providing excellent customer service is the most important aspect of my job and having bought and sold several times in Brighton and Hove myself, I know how much difference it makes having a supportive Estate Agent on your side. I also love the creative element of the copywriting, so I recently evolved my role and have become one of the professional copywriters. I believe we are different to other Estate Agents and the positive feedback we all get from customers when we match them to their perfect property is a real motivating factor.

      your business is truly a credit to your industry!

      Dear Simon,

      I just wanted to write to thank you so much for everything you have done particularly in the last 24 hours re OSR. I have been so impressed with your approach throughout the "on the market stage" & especially regarding the drop out yesterday & we are thrilled to be accepting an offer that more closely represents the value we all felt was fair for the house.

      I am so grateful for you taking the trouble to offer to update Stuart at Rowland Gorringe also. We know we have to keep everything crossed with the chains, but couldn't be happier with the situ this far. I couldn't even express it when you called me today, I was so surprised & thrilled sorry if I seemed underwhelmed!

       I have also been incredibly impressed with all the teams in the Hove & Kemptown office and Karen Frank is superb also, she gives every confidence she is on the ball & will do everything to make the sale progress. I will wholeheartedly recommend Brand Vaughan to everyone I know, and considering all my contacts and friends know I am incredibly exacting that will be praise indeed! Thank you again.

      Finally David, I am so glad I met you at OSR that day, when I was so devastated at the state of my former beautiful home, your approach was so positive yet not fake or over selling! I wish your business every success you & your business truly are a credit to your industry! Best K

      above and beyond the call of duty.
      We moved from Brighton recently and Karen and the Brand Vaughan team were unbelievably helpful.

      We often said during what can be a very difficult time that we wouldn't know what we would have done without them, especially Karen it has to be said, who we felt worked for us above and beyond the call of duty.

      Many thanks and if we ever buy or sell again we know where to come.

      Best wishes. Lee Ross

      Only one agent I shall sell through in the future.
      Hi Jason,

      Just wanted to write the following to express our gratitude.

      Please feel free to quote in any company testimonial literature. Having not had no luck selling our property through a local agent (after 2 months on the market), we noticed that Brand Vaughan had managed to sell a similar house just a few doors away almost immediately after we had seen the 'for sale' sign go up.

      We decided to change agents and thank goodness we did.

      Toby's enthusiasm was infectious and he was confident that he would have a buyer within the week.

      We thought that a little ambitious but we were really impressed by his positive attitude and energy.

      We gave the property to Brand Vaughan on a Thursday. By the following Monday (the property had not yet gone live on the internet) Toby phoned with 3 offers.

      To say we were very pleasantly shocked is an understatement.

      We accepted one of those offers and the follow up service was then passed to Karen Franks who chased the sale all the way through to completion.

      She was fantastic and kept us informed at every step of the sale.

      I have bought and sold numerous properties over the years but have never been so impressed as with the service Brand Vaughan provide.

      There is only one agent I shall sell through in the future, that's for sure.

      Many thanks Soly Daneshmand

      I would recommend Brand Vaughan.
      I brought and sold my property through Brand Vaughan.

      I found Jason incredibly approachable and knowledgeable.
      It was refreshing to have an estate agent that was calm and not pushy.

      He marketed my property well and it quickly sold. He kept me informed about the process. I would recommend Brand Vaughan and I am now very happy in our new home.

      Brand Vaughan came across as professional, vibrant, fizzing with energy and worked together as a team.

      Brand Vaughan were recommended to me by a flat owner in the same block who had used Brand Vaughan, and in term I would have no hesitation in recommending them to anyone looking to buy or sell a property in Brighton.

    • Seller Testimonial

      my gratitude to the whole team really!
      Just a quick note to express my appreciation and gratitude to your team for managing the sale of my house.

      Not only the team was professional, polite, competent, but also understanding and sympathetic to a very sensitive situation in someone's life.

      A big thank you from my heart to Matthew, Lee for his amazing negotiation!

      Annie for following up the whole process in an extremely competent and warm manner, my gratitude to the whole team really! Once I complete on the transaction, I will make sure my appreciation is demonstrated to your team.

      I just wish the estate agents in London have the same level of competence and professionalism to your team in Brighton. Unfortunately it is not the case. My very best wishes to all of you.

      Sincerely, Laura Padovani

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      professionalism and integrity in all my dealings.

      I used Brand Vaughan on just this one occasion and was very impressed as illustrated by my responses to the questions asked above.

      Estate agents tend to get a bad name but I experienced a high degree of professionalism and integrity in all my dealings with this firm.

      The market was fairly feverish at the time but once I had made my offer, they were absolutely open with me about their client's expectations which made negotiations straightforward.

      They did an excellent job for their client.

      I shall be using this firm to sell my properties in future.

      Finally, I was also impressed with the updates I received from the firm once my offer had been accepted.

      They maintained a watchful eye over the parties' solicitors to see that their work was progressed swiftly and always kept me informed.
