    Property buying guide

    REGISTRATION

    The first requirement is for you to register your details and property specifications with us which can be achieved in a number of ways (i.e. email, phone, in person, or by simply CLICKING HERE and completing our registration form. This will give us an insight into your personal requirements, thereby enabling us to modify the properties we bring to your attention. Once registered, you are then in a position to receive details from us directly, via the communication route that best suits you. Many of the better quality properties are sold to our database before they even have time to reach the internet, so to get the best new properties first register with us.

    MORTGAGE

    It's important to understand what price you are able to pay up to and therefore we recommend if you require a mortgage to purchase that you seek advice on how much you can borrow, the likely deposit size you will need and what are the associated costs of purchasing. This ensures you only look at property that is affordable to you and also gives you the confidence to offer should you see something you really like. Most lenders will issue an AIP (Agreement In Principle) which is advisable to get as this will also save time once you do find a property to purchase.

    VIEWING

    Our friendly team are available to arrange and escort you around those all important viewings of your preferred properties. Our offices are open 7 days a week so please contact us to arrange a mutually convenient time.

    MAKING YOUR OFFER

    Once you have found a property you wish to purchase, the next step is to make an offer via us which we will submit to the vendor for their consideration. This will be put to the owner both verbally and in writing. We will then let you know our clients response and if accepted, a sale can be agreed subject to contract. If not accepted, we will report our clients views back to you and if you wish to improve your offer, a process of negotiation will begin, which we will guide you through, with a view to trying to agree a price that is acceptable.

    AGREEING THE PURCHASE

    Once your offer has been accepted you will need to instruct a solicitor to act on your behalf, at Hurst we have specialists in this field we work with and will be happy to introduce you to them. Your solicitor will handle all legal requirements of your purchase known as property conveyancing. Also at this point you will be asked to formally identify yourself to allow us to comply with Anti Money Laundering Legislation. Finally if a mortgage is required you will need to organise to make your broker/lender aware of your purchase and fill in a full application asking for a mortgage on the specific address you have agreed to purchase.

    THE SURVEY

    It is generally the requirement of any mortgage for a surveyor, appointed by the lender to carry out a Mortgage Valuation and basic survey before a mortgage offer can be approved/released. Even if you do not require a mortgage it is still recommended that you instruct a surveyor to check the property is structurally sound before you purchase. The basic report is designed to provide a Valuation (I.E. Determine whether the amount to be loaned by the lender is secure and also deals with the basic condition of the property). Since you as the buyer are also provided with a copy, it allows both you and the lender to evaluate the findings prior to entering into a commitment to purchase/lend. Should you wish for a more detailed survey to be carried out you can often ask the surveyor acting for the lender to carry this out for you at the same time, albeit at an increased charge.

    There are generally two types of advanced survey available:

    1. Homebuyer Survey/Valuation- This is the mid-range option as it is more expensive than the Mortgage Valuation but less than the Building Survey (see below). The objective of the Homebuyer Survey is to provide a more in depth report which will assist the buyer in making an informed decision whether to proceed with the purchase and also whether the agreed price reflects the actual value. Moreover, the professional opinion of the surveyor as contained in their report will also set out particular features of the property which may possibly have an affect on the present value and potential future marketability.
    2. Full Structural Survey- This survey is comprehensive and lists full technical details of the construction, materials and condition. It highlights the full spectrum of defects from the more serious down to the insignificant and the terms of the survey are therefore tailored to fit the client's specific needs. This type of survey is often carried out where structural concerns/issues already exist or after the aforementioned surveys results are in, where they point to areas of concern that require more detailed further investigation.

    THE SEARCHES

    These are paid for by you the purchaser and conducted by your solicitor who submits a local authority search to the borough council in which the property is located. Its purpose is to ascertain if there have been any planning consents previously granted on the property or if there are any other local issues in the immediate areas surrounding the property which may have an impact on the purchase. In most instances, the search will also include an Environmental and Drainage search. A mortgage company will generally require all these searches, however even if purchasing without a mortgage, we would still recommend that you have the searches carried out, to ensure you have all the information that may affect the property before concluding the transaction.

    THE DRAFT CONTRACT

    The draft contract is drawn up by the seller's solicitor and is forwarded to your solicitor for consideration. The contract detail the parties involved in the transaction, the price agreed and all the relevant legal documentation on the property. Your solicitor will read through the content before asking any queries/questions they may have via the seller's solicitors about the legal title.

    THE MORTGAGE OFFER

    Once the Lender is in possession of the Mortgage Valuation/Survey Report and, subject to the findings of this report and provided all references and checks have been conducted satisfactorily, the Lender will send a formal mortgage offer to you and your solicitor. The document is then signed and returned and funds requested by your solicitor once a completion date is agreed.

    COMPLETION

    Completion is usually agreed anytime up to a week or more after exchange of contracts, although sometimes they do occur on the same day as exchange if prearranged. The balance of the purchase price is transferred by your solicitor to the seller's solicitor and the keys released - Congratulations! You are now the owner of your new home!

    • Seller Testimonial

      From Neil heath, a seller In 48 Honiton RoadI recently sold my house through Glenisters. They gave me a great deal on the cost and marketed the property very well. I achieved above the guide price thanks to their help. They really earnt their money with the after sales service, Linda went above and beyond pushing the sale over the line. I would 100 % recommend them!!!
    • Seller Testimonial

      From Mr & Mrs Moulden, a seller In 76 Fontayne AvenueWe used Glenisters to sell our house and are so glad that we did. They made what can be a very stressful time very simple and did everything for us, keeping us informed throughout the whole process, from the initial valuation up to the minute of completion. The staff are so friendly, helpful and knowledgeable and were always available to speak to. We had an amazing amount of interest in our house probably due to the lovely photos that were taken and the price we got far exceeded our expectations. Estate Agents often have quite a bad reputation but I would have no hesitation in recommending Glenisters to anyone. They did a fantastic job.

    • Seller Testimonial

      From Sandra Gaskin, a seller In Seymer RoadI have used Glenisters twice now to sell two properties. I have been given realistic valuations both times and achieved the asking price. The staff are friendly and courteous while being professional. They put things across clearly. All calls were promptly answered and if the person being asked for wasnt available, the call was returned the same day. Glenisters staff stayed in contact and chased matters when appropriate, staying on top of the chain (which involved five sales) and knowing what position everyone was in at any given time. I would recommend Glenisters to friends and family and when I eventually sell again, I will return to place my business here.

      From Kevin Helsden, a seller In Rush Green RoadLinda gave us excellent service because although flat was wold on the first viewing the sale took over a year to go through due to my mothers health. At all times Linda was professional, friendly and patient.
    • Seller Testimonial

      From Richard Redding, a seller In Garry WayI sold through Glenister which was great. But have experience the service of most of the other agents covering Havering. I would just like them all to care as much as David and his team at Glenisters. Most of my communication was with Jemma and Linda. There are many words I could use to describe them but helpful, honest, informative and friendly would do. We sold by having an open day. Best option prepare the house once gave it to David for 90 mins on a friday. Had an excepted offer on the Tuesday. I wish all agents were confident to use this method. Well done to Glenisters. David was available if I needed advise and gave me a personal call when he realised we had exchanged. He also popped in on moving day. I did not know about this review site before I began looking for an agent to sell. I will now look at what customers of other agents in Havering. Just to see if they match with my experience.
