    Cullompton is a small market town and a great place to work where I feel part of a friendly community. The town offers a good range of local amenities, a new Tesco superstore, regular farmers market, and a wide range of local independent shops and traders including Local Butcher Veysey's with their award winning sausages. With junction 28 of the M5 lying close by to the east, Cullompton is particularly popular with those commuting to Exeter or Taunton, both less than 30 minutes drive. In fact that was the reason our family moved here in the mid-seventies. Surrounding us there are some very attractive villages and local walks including some great pubs and of course the Blackdown Hills, recognised as being an Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty.

  • paragraph

    Cullompton is a friendly and interesting town, with many historic buildings including The Walronds in Fore Street is a Grade 1 Listed property which is being lovingly restored and is already a hub for community activity and hosts a wide range of events in both the garden and the house. There is also St Andrews Church which is also Grade 1 Listed and in fact there is always something going on for people of all ages. There are many sporting and recreational clubs including the Padbrook Golf and Country Hotel, rugby, football and cricket clubs.

  • paragraph

    One of the many reasons why people choose to live in the area is that house prices are more realistic and easier on the pocket. So do come and check us out and why not enjoy lunch or a coffee in the town and get a feel of what we already know. The team here at Wilkie May & Tuckwood look forward to one day meeting you.

5 Steps to Selling
  • paragraph

    Step 1 - An accurate market appraisal

     

    How much is your home worth? It's vital to get an accurate valuation so the best possible price is achieved. And no one is better qualified than Wilkie May & Tuckwood to provide precisely that - thanks to our unmatched knowledge of the local property market.

    All it takes is a quick call and leave the rest to our friendly and utterly professional team.

  • paragraph

    Step 2 - Marketing your home

     

    Naturally, we use all available means to make sure your home reaches the largest possible number of potential buyers - from local property publications, through the leading home sale websites, to national press.

    Once we've started marketing, our state-of-the-art technology goes to work matching suitable buyers to your home. But at Wilkie May & Tuckwood we're great believers in the human touch, so we'll carefully register and check all applicants, to ensure that they are serious potential buyers who won't waste your time.

  • paragraph

    Step 3 - Viewings

     

    Taking care to match the right people to the right property makes it much more likely that a viewing will lead to a sale. So does the fact that our enthusiastic and incredibly hard working people know exactly how to show off your home to its best advantage.

    With Wilkie May & Tuckwood, it really is all about you - and we'll stop at nothing to do the best possible job on your behalf.

  • paragraph

    Step 4 - Agreeing the sale

     

    When we receive an offer for your home, we'll liaise between you and the buyer until a price is agreed. This may include fixtures and fittings. And, at this point, we'll also be looking to agree a projected time-frame for exchange of contracts and completion of the sale.

    If you're buying a new place, we'll also contact the estate agent concerned to find out about the state of the chain.

  • paragraph

    Step 5 - Instructing solicitors

     

    At this stage, we'll need your solicitor's details. It's very important for you to supply these promptly,since the transaction can't start until both buyer's and seller's solicitors have been instructed.

    We have a number of local solicitors that we recommend, that we're used to working closely together with, which can speed up the conveyancing process dramatically. Please let us know if you'd like a quotation.

5 Steps to Buying
  • paragraph

    Step 1 - Think about your needs
  • paragraph

    Once you have decided to buy, it is crucial that you understand what you require of your new home.

    It would be useful to decide on the one main reason for your move as this will drive your search.

    If you are borrowing funds, or porting an existing mortgage, Wilkie May & Tuckwood Mortgage Services Ltd can provide expert, independent advice and information on the costs involved in buying property, obtaining the most suitable mortgage for your needs, and protecting your home and family for the future.

    Choose a solicitor. Again, Wilkie May & Tuckwood would be confident in recommending a host of local solicitors for you to use.

  • paragraph

    Step 2 - How to find a house
  • paragraph

    Check the online property portals as well as our own Wilkie May & Tuckwood website. These are updated on a daily basis. Keep an eye on the local newspapers, take note of newly erected For Sale boards or visit us in the office.

    We know our seller's situation and properties extremely well and we will be able to match you to suitable properties.

  • paragraph

    Step 3 - Viewing a property
  • paragraph

    At this stage it is important to re-evaluate your requirements and compare the properties you are viewing against this list. Consider the interior, exterior, neighbouring properties and the local area.

    Picture how you would use the space. Where would your furniture go, and is there enough storage?

    Don't worry if you are not able to assess the physical condition of the property at first instance as a survey will tell you more.

  • paragraph

    Step 4 - Making an offer 
  • paragraph

    This is possibly the most delicate part of the house buying process. Don't be afraid to ask us for advice, it is our job to negotiate this deal.

    Consider factors affecting the price you are prepared to pay for any one particular property such as the location, condition, the situation of the seller and also think about what the market is currently doing.

    Once an agreeable offer has been accepted, Wilkie May & Tuckwood Mortgage Services Ltd can provide expert, independent advice on arranging the most suitable mortgage, and arranging a survey on the property, alternatively speak to your nominated mortgage company. A solicitor should be chosen to act on your behalf at this stage.

  • paragraph

    Step 5 - Conveyancing process
  • paragraph

    The solicitors of the sellers and buyers now perform a set of legal tasks, known as conveyancing, to transfer ownership of land and property from seller to buyer. During this process it is the responsibility of the buyer's solicitor to investigate and inform the buyer and buyer's mortgage company of the legal aspects of the property.

    The seller's solicitor will prepare a draft contract of sale and send this to the buyer's solicitor. The seller will be asked to complete a Property Information Form (which gives important information about the property) and a Fixtures and Fittings Form (outlining what is included in the sale) which is forwarded to the buyer's solicitor. The buyer's solicitor may amend the contract or raise additional enquiries of the seller's solicitor based on the information in the contract or the Title information. The buyer's solicitor may also request any warranties for work undertaken (such as new windows) or evidence of planning consents. The buyer's solicitor will also order from a search provider a range of appropriate searches for things such as planning issues, environmental concerns or flooding.

    The buyer's solicitor will draw up a Transfer document to transfer ownership from seller to buyer.

    Once the final mortgage offer has been received by the buyer's solicitor, searches have been analysed and any additional queries are resolved, the buyer's solicitor will report to the buyer on any issues.

    Once the situation is accepted by the buyer and seller and any required insurances have been purchased, their respective solicitors will fix a completion date and exchange contracts. At this point a non-refundable deposit is paid and the parties have entered a legal contract. Completion occurs when the buyer has paid land registry fees and stamp duty, arranged insurance and the outstanding balance on the property is paid. We are informed when this has happened and at that stage able to release the keys for collection by the buyer. The estate agent is paid by the seller's solicitor from the proceeds of the sale.

Additional Information and Services

    Energy Performance Certificates (EPC'S)
    image cannot be displayed

     

    If you are buying or selling a home you need an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) by law given current legislation. EPCs are required whenever a building is built, sold or rented out. The certificate provides 'A' to 'G' ratings for the building, with 'A' being the most energy efficient and 'G' being the least, with the average up to now being 'D'.

    Accredited energy assessors produce EPCs alongside an associated report which suggests improvements to make a building more energy efficient. Wilkie May & Tuckwood will be able to help you arrange an EPC with an accredited energy assessor, just call any of our offices for more information.

  • service

    Energy Performance Certificates - what they tell you

    EPCs carry ratings that compare the current energy efficiency and carbon dioxide emissions with potential figures that your home could achieve. Potential figures are calculated by estimating what the energy efficiency and carbon dioxide emissions would be if energy saving measures were put in place.

    EPCs also provide a detailed recommendation report showing what you could do to help reduce the amount of energy you use and your carbon dioxide emissions.

    What an EPC looks like

    Information about energy efficiency and carbon emissions is summarised in two charts that show the energy and carbon dioxide emission ratings. The charts look similar to those supplied on electrical appliances, like fridges and washing machines.

  • service

    How to get an EPC

    Wilkie May & Tuckwood will be able to help you arrange an EPC with an accredited energy assessor, just call any of our offices for more information.

    Which buildings need an EPC


    An EPC is required when a building is constructed, rented or sold. A building will need an EPC if it has a roof and walls and uses energy to 'condition an indoor climate'. This means it has heating, air conditioning or mechanical ventilation.

    Which buildings don't need an EPC


    The following buildings don't need an EPC when they are built, rented or sold:
    • places of worship
    • temporary buildings that will be used for less than two years
    • standalone buildings with total useful floor area of less than 50 square metres that aren't used to provide living accommodation for a single household
    • industrial sites, workshops and non-residential agricultural buildings that don't use a lot of energy

  • Buyer Testimonial

    within 24 hours a new mortgage was found
    I was recommended to see Jonathon Crump when looking for a mortgage in late 2012. I was not disappointed. I found him very knowledgeable and dependable. We discussed my requirements, and Jonathon did the rest. I had to go in again to sign various forms, but other than that Jonathon did it all. So I got my offer of mortgage. Perfect. But then I changed my mind and had 3 weeks to sort out a new mortgage for another property, get it all in place, and move. No problem. Within 24 hours a new mortgage was found, and within 7 days a new mortgage offer. I can`t praise Jonathon highly enough. Totally professional, knowledgeable, reliable, and fast. 
    Mr Carl Shearing
