A GUIDE TO PURCHASING A PROPERTY
  • paragraph

    Main & Main have offices across South Manchester situated in prime locations all with excellent High Street frontage. For most people buying a home will be their most important and largest investment, consequently it is important that you seek the correct advice from professional Agents who 'know the market place' - Main & Main fulfil that requirement.

    It is essential that as a buyer follows simple rules so as to make the transaction as smooth and trouble free as possible.

    1. When you have chosen the property that you wish to purchase, submit your offer to the selling Agent, give as much background information as possible on your situation including any related sale, details of your mortgage requirements. We would strongly recommend that mortgage advice be sought prior to purchasing , we have an in branch mortgage advisor available to assist.

    2. Once your offer has been accepted, the selling Agent will require further details in order to instruct solicitors to act on your behalf. Having completed your mortgage application and paid your survey fee the Building Society/Bank will instruct a surveyor to inspect the property. Surveys are undertaken in various ways depending on the fee.  Providing that the surveyor is satisfied with the home that you are proposing to purchase he will submit a report to the Building Society/ Bank and a mortgage offer will subsequently be made. This will give you details on condition, necessary repairs and value both for mortgage and insurance re-instatement value. Be careful not to confuse these two valuations as these figures can vary considerably and this in turn will lead to confusion as to the price that you are expected to pay for the property.

    3. Your solicitor will check the contract documentation, raise any queries and apply for the necessary searches, for which you will be required to pay a fee.

    4. Once you have signed your contract and exchanged with the sellers solicitor, having placed a deposit  a completion date will be set for the balance of the funds to be paid over, this is normally fourteen to twenty eight days after exchange.

    5. On completion you may have to pay Stamp Duty (A tax levied by the Government)The rates are as follows:

    • No stamp duty up to £125,000 in most areas, this is at a higher level of £150,000 in areas of regeneration.
    • Up to £250,000 - 1% of the total purchase price
    • £250,001 - £500,000 - 3% of the total purchase price
    • £500,001 - £1,000,000 - 4% of the total purchase price
    • 5% of sales over £1,000,000

     

    6. Finally, on completion day keys are not handed over to you until the sellers solicitor has advised the Selling Agent that all monies have been received.
