    Sandersons is renowned for applying the highest standards of quality and integrity in all our property services. We are proud of our growing reputation for uncompromising professionalism in everything we do. The trust that our clients place in us is earned day in and day out by serving them as we would like to be served ourselves.

    No Contracts
    image cannot be displayed
    We believe that at the heart of what is wrong with our industry is the concept of a fixed term sole agency contract. It is our contention that this encourages agents to promise the world to get the instruction on and then be complacent, safe in the knowledge that their client is bound to them for anything up to 16 weeks. We do not tie our clients into any such contract. In the unlikely event that you are not entirely satisfied with our performance you can dis-instruct us immediately with no penalties. We believe that the quality of our service should be the reason you remain loyal to us not that you have no choice.

Sandersons UK - Step by Step Buying Guide
  • paragraph

    image cannot be displayed
    If you are thinking of moving, most you of will now register online with agents in your area or will respond to something that you have seen advertised on one of the property portals. On the whole you will have no choice about the agent you deal with as the vendor will have chosen who they want to represent them. Clearly we hope that you are buying your property through Sandersons and have compiled the following check list so that you know what the process involves and how to avoid some of the common pitfalls.
  • paragraph

    Putting in an offer
    You will have worked out what you can afford and, when you find the property you want, will put in your offer accordingly. The agent acting on behalf of your vendor has a legal responsibility to put your offer forward and will give you feedback on the vendor's response. The process of negotiating around the price can be lengthy and there are no fixed rules but do make sure that you are clear as to exactly what you want included in the sale in terms of fixtures and fittings.
  • paragraph

    Substantiating your offer
    It is likely that you will be asked to substantiate your offer. You may already have an AIP (Approval in Principle) from your lender in which case you will be able to provide this in writing. It may be that you have not chosen a mortgage product yet in which case you may be asked to provide proof of income. You will also be asked what the position is with regards to your current property and whether your purchase is subject to a sale. Obviously, from the vendor's perspective you are more attractive as a buyer if you either do not have to sell a property to proceed or are a long way down the road to selling the property you are currently living in.
  • paragraph

    Acceptance of the offer
    Once the vendor accepts your offer you will need to provide details of your solicitor or conveyancer. You will then be sent a Memorandum of Sale by the agent. This will list the two parties (vendor and purchaser) and their legal representation, the agreed price and any fixtures and fitting agreed in the price. Also it will detail any special agreements ie whether you have agreed an exchange date.
  • paragraph

    Solicitor or conveyancer
    We would recommend that you use a specialist firm for the conveyancing, they tend to be cheaper and more efficient that general practising solicitors. We are happy to recommend a firm should you wish.
  • paragraph

    Arranging finance
    Make sure that you compare all available products that are available on the market. Even if you have been with your current lender for some time, do make sure that you have the most competitive product on the market. It could amount to £100s per month difference. If you would like us to obtain a "no obligation" comparison for you please contact one of our sales managers.  
  • paragraph

    The progression process
    The agent and your conveyancer should keep you informed of the progression of the sale. Most offers are subject to at least a valuation and often a survey. Local authority searches will need to be commissioned and enquiries raised with the vendor. If you are involved in a chain, your exchange and completion will have to be synchronised with the other people in the chain. This is often a complex process
  • paragraph

    Arranging buildings insurance
    Remember that you are responsible for insuring your new home from the day that contracts are exchanged. Again, ensure that you have looked at a range of products comparing competitiveness and what is actually covered. Not all insurance products or companies are the same. We have found that many of our landlords have come away from the cheaper end of the insurance market as when they have come to make a claim they have found that they were not covered as comprehensively as they thought.
  • paragraph

    Exchange and completion day
    Before an exchange of contracts can take place, you will have to sign the contract with your conveyancer/solicitor. Once contracts have been exchanged you are now legally bound to complete the sale. At the point of exchange a non-refundable deposit of usually 10% of the purchase price is lodged with your conveyancer. In the unlikely event that you pull out of the sale, this is passed to the vendor. On exchange a date for completion is set and you will know the day that you will have to move.

      We believe in complete transparency so, rather than giving you selected and possibly edited comments of what our customers have said about us, we employ the services of a third party that collects feedback from all our clients. This is posted on our website www.sandersonsuk.com. In this way, you can see all comments positive and negative alike and make an informed decision.

      We have held the Investor in People Award since 2005. The following are extracts from a report compiled by our Assessor

      "People at all levels demonstrate an extremely high level of personal commitment to the provision of quality services and have a clear focus on the needs of their respective clients"

      "The Company has high aspirations and continually challenges its performance; there is great energy throughout the organisation and people at all levels are innovative and anxious to perform well. People have a clear focus on maximising their personal potential in supporting the Company's overall aims and objectives."

      "People view Sandersons Property Management as a really good company to work for and it's rare to find people who are so proud of what they do and are keen to see it succeed; people feel truly empowered and exhibit great commitment."

      Totally committed! A truly remarkable service from beginning to end, nothing was too much trouble and we were kept informed along the way. Special mention goes to Julie who worked tirelessly to progress things, even communicating out of hours with us. We have moved eight times and without doubt Sandersons stand out as the most efficient, they took personal responsibility in dealing with any stressful scenarios that surfaced during the purchase of our property. Use them - you won't regret it!

      Amazing company to have selling your home
      By Jamie D   On 14/01/2015 

      Sold with the first couple that walked through the door - Amazing company to have selling your home. My property was sold to the first couple that walked through the door. Julie was amazing and her experience in selling absolutely second to none. It's worth mentioning that I had dealt with two Estate Agents prior to Sanderson's coming on board, that were in no way as professional as Sanderson's.
    • Seller Testimonial

      I felt they always had my best interests in mind.
      By Mrs Monckton On 16/10/2014 

      Really helpful and on my side I hadn't moved for 33 years and am a pensioner so I was very nervous when it came to doing this. Sandersons put my mind at rest and not only sold my home for higher than expected, really looked after me throughout and made a difficult time stress free and easy. I felt they always had my best interests in mind. Would thoroughly recommend Sandersons of Maidstone to anyone.
