Buying through Proctors
  • paragraph

    We recognise the fact the purchase of your home is the most important and expensive transaction you are likely to undergo. At Proctors we are sure that with our local knowledge and expertise, we will be able to find you a property to suit your needs, be it a straightforward move or a 'Buy to Let' investment.

    To enable you to unravel the complexities of buying your home, we have set out below a brief overview of the various procedures involved:
  • paragraph

    Registration & Viewing
    The first requirement is for you to register your details and property specifications which you can do on our website, by email, phone or in person at your local branch. Once registered, you are then in a position to receive details from us.
    Our friendly team will then arrange those all-important viewings of your selected properties.

    Mortgage
    In order to speed up your house buying process, it is advisable wherever possible to get a mortgage agreement-in-principle (AIP) before any final decision on your new property is made.

    Making your offer & acceptance
    Once you have located your ideal property, we will submit your offer to the vendor for their consideration. This is done both verbally and in writing.
    As soon as the vendor has accepted your offer, you should instruct a solicitor to act on your behalf. Your solicitor will handle all legal requirements of your purchase.

    Survey
    The next step is to arrange a survey. If you are taking out a mortgage this will be conducted by a Chartered Surveyor acting for your lender. Their report is to provide the lender with a Valuation i.e. determine whether the amount to be loaned is secure and also deals with the basic condition of the property.

    Draft Contracts
    The draft contract is drawn up by the seller's solicitor and is forwarded to the buyer's solicitor for consideration.

    Mortgage Offer - where applicable
    The Lender is now in possession of the Mortgage Valuation survey and, subject to the findings of this report; receipt/approval of the mortgage application and provided all references and checks have been conducted satisfactorily, the Lender will send a formal mortgage offer to the buyer and their solicitor.

    Exchange of Contracts
    Once both parties have signed the contract, a deposit (normally 10% of the purchase price) is paid. At this stage, the parties agree on a date for completion. This is necessary before exchange can take place.

    Completion
    Completion usually follows a few days or weeks after exchange of contracts. The balance of the purchase price is transferred by the buyer's solicitor to the seller's solicitor and the keys released.

    Congratulations! You are now the owner of your new home!

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      They found a buyer within a week
      A big thank you to the Proctors team at Beckenham, and especially to James, for making my house sale as stress free as possible. All the way through they were professional, courteous and respectful. They found a buyer within a week. James ensured the sale progressed as quickly as possible including using his excellent mediating skills to negotiate the occasional hiccup. I couldn't have asked for more. I would definitely recommend to anyone, to use James and the team. Best wishes Sarah V
    • Seller Testimonial

       I couldn't be more satisfied.
      Estate Agents sometimes have a bad reputation and I was anxious that my little terraced house was going to be difficult to sell. I couldn't have been more wrong! Ian Davy took on the task and his infectious optimism meant that the entire process has been easy and painless. He (and his colleagues at the Beckenham branch) went above and beyond - for example, photocopying documents before hand-delivering them; always responding promptly to any queries and keeping me informed at all times. The marketing of my house was of a really high standard (the photos taken by James were brilliant!) and having just one weekend of block viewing resulted in two full-priced offers. From start to finish (I.e. contacting Proctors to completing on the house) has taken less than 4 months and I couldn't be more satisfied. Thank you for all your hard work - I will recommend Proctors to anyone looking to buy or sell!
    • Seller Testimonial

      Never kept on hold, always kept us in the picture
      Ian Davy met us at the house, full of promises and seemed too good to be true.....but everything he promised was done with a professional and friendly manner. Estate agents are often slated publicly but Proctors deserve none if this, I could not be more delighted, as we are based some way away, Ian checked the empty property regularly, arranged house clearance, even read the utility meters...and in fact so much more. I have no connection whatsoever with this business, but if I had, I would be immensely proud of the integrity and pleasant way staff deal with matters. Never kept on hold, never failed to phone back, always kept us fully in the picture, even every viewing advised by email...gosh what a pleasant surprise, especially in this modern world find a company who seem to actually put the customer first....top marks guys A*****

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      Ian Davy was a breath of fresh air.
      Having met many estate agents before I was very unimpressed with estate agents, ranging from the couldn't care less to the stereotype estate agent. Ian Davy was a breath of fresh air. He cared about his client but was also very supportive to me through the process. Would definitely recommend Proctors. As you would say, Ian you're a star! Thank you. Very happy with my purchase and will use you again.
    • Buyer Testimonial

      we have the house of our dreams
      It was April last year that the we first viewed the property which later became our family home. From that moment on with our hearts set on the property we received exemplary service from Ian and the team, there was a real sense that they wanted to help fulfil our purchase as well as meeting the needs of their client. We had regular contact throughout and were informed fully of progress - even when glitches arose. A year on, and with plenty of work still to do on the house we know we have the house of our dreams and part of that is down to Ian and Proctors.
    • Buyer Testimonial

      extremely responsive and personable throughout
      Have just completed the purchase of a property marketed by Proctors. For unclear reasons (seemingly a lack of communication flow through solicitors), what should have been a straightforward transaction turned something much more prolonged, despite a willing buyer and seller. Ian Davy in the Beckenham branch (backed up by James Higgins over holiday cover periods) proved extremely responsive and personable throughout the process, and I was particularly impressed at his manner with me as a buyer given I wasn't ultimately the end client. Despite the slow pace of the transaction, I felt that Ian made every effort he could to assist its progression, and ensure a clear flow of information at all times. Thank you, very pleased it finally happened!
