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

      Absolutely fantastic from start to finish
      Proctors were absolutely fantastic from start to finish with the sale of our house. It was not an easy sale, encountering a few problems along the way, but everything was always dealt with in an incredibly professional manner, that I could not fault in any way. All of the staff at the West Wickham branch were always extremely helpful and friendly. They made what can be a very stressful time in your life, as smooth an experience as possible. I would recommend Proctors without reservation.

    • Seller Testimonial

      A tremendous thank you 
      Dear Charles, A tremendous thank you for selling our house and helping make the transaction go as smoothly as possible. We had followed the housing market and knew the sort of price our house would achieve. The valuation you gave us concurred exactly with ours and this proved to be spot on, with several offers, within days of it going on the market, one for the exactly the price you had quoted, which we accepted. As you know, as with most house sales there are problems, mostly related to chains. I can safely say that without your input, we would not be happily living in our new home. You have a fantastic team working for you in your West Wickham office, who were always on the case if you were not around, namely in no particular order, Emma, Rodney, Sharon and Andy. Rest assured I will always recommend your office to anyone wishing to put their house up for sale. 
       Kind regards, Mr and Mrs R
    • Seller Testimonial

      A team that feels like one of the family
      When we were looking for an agent for the sale of our late father's property we knew we would need someone who could act as an intermediary between the 4 beneficiaries. From the first valuation through to completion Proctors have gone above and beyond what we hoped for. Every one of the team at the West Wickham Office had to be involved at one point or another and everyone was friendly yet professional. They were able to calm members of our family and interact when all other avenues were closed. They accompanied prospective clients and when offers were received they negotiated the best possible price, after giving us all the required information to be able to make an informed decision. Their professionalism did not stop there. Once an offer had been accepted they acted as a go between for all parties, at times having to placate a nervous buyer as well as handle our families requirements. You could not ask for a more professional service from a team that feels like one of the family. I would highly recommend them for the sale of any property. It's just a shame they don't have an office in Bristol. A big thank you to Emma, Andy, Sharon, Rodney and Charles for everything you have done.
      Mr H

    Testimonials from Buyers

    • Buyer Testimonial

      Very pleased with the service
      In 2015 we sold and bought property through the Proctors West Wickham office and were very pleased with the service we received. We were kept up to date throughout the process and when there were tricky negotiations they were dealt with efficiently. The whole team were friendly and helpful making our move as easy as possible. They were also very good at chasing up on solicitors and giving good advice on other services such as surveyors and removers. We never felt pressurised and think that they are a very good local company who look after their clients well, whether buying or selling, in a very professional manner. Thanks in particular to Emma for all her hard work and helpfulness.

    • Buyer Testimonial

      Superb Service
      Dear Sirs, Just wanted to place on record our appreciation of the superb service my wife and I have received from the West Wickham office of Proctors, and in particular Emma Duyckers, in connection with the purchase of a property in Hayes being marketed by Proctors. Throughout the negotiations we have always been kept fully informed of developments and at no time have we had to wait/chase for calls to be returned and e-mails answered - what a refreshing change! Please be assured that when we move again (hopefully not too soon) Proctors will be our first choice as Agents.
      Mr P
    • Buyer Testimonial

      ..service, customer support cannot be understated
      We purchased our house a month ago and I can honestly say it was pleasure to buy through Proctors. Their service, customer support and general helpfulness cannot be understated. It can be a stressful time and what we really needed was somebody on our side to guide us through it and that's exactly what we got with Emma Duyckers from Proctors West Wickham branch. She was professional, reliable, straightforward, facilitating and charming. I would not hesitate to recommend using Proctors as an agent (although having just moved we feel that maybe we'll leave a little while before we move again)!
