  • paragraph

    What Should I Expect?
    · A professional service

    · Experienced, friendly and enthusiastic staff with a high level of expertise and local knowledge

    · To achieve the best possible price within a timescale that suits your needs

    Key Features To Our Service
    1. A free market appraisal - Our no pressure 'anytime, any reason' approach makes it easier for people to communicate with us. Whether you require an initial valuation or you are ready to sell, we are at your service and happy to help.

    2. When you are ready to sell, we will send out our professional photographers, arrange the room descriptions, drone photography, a 3D interactive Dolls House walkthrough and virtual tour for virtual viewings, a floorplan and arrange for an EPC to be carried out. This is all paid for by HoldenCopley to showcase your property and make sure you stand out from the crowd.

    3. Shout it from the rooftops! Maximum exposure of your property is paramount. We want to reach as many potential buyers as possible. Specific time is allocated to contacting our extensive database of hot buyers and your property is uploaded to all of the major property websites, as well as our social media feeds. A distinctive For Sale board will also generate extra enquiries which when coupled with our prominent office window displays, provide additional 24-hour marketing tools.

    4. Keeping you informed - We aim to provide regular feedback from each viewing as well as keeping you informed with regular marketing updates. Our philosophy is to provide answers before you need to ask the questions!

    5. Longer opening times - Most of our viewing activity takes place outside of normal working hours, with Saturday being our busiest day of the week; right through from morning until late afternoon. As you can imagine, email and internet activity is constant so we are structured to be available and adequately staffed when we are needed the most.

    6. Seeing the job through - Moving home is what it's all about, which is why our selling fee isn't payable until the end of the process. From start to finish, our objective is clear: to achieve the best possible result for our seller, by listening and being there for them every step of the way. When the job is done, we are then paid and having made sure your experience was a good one, you will tell others where to come when they need to move.

Buyers Guide
  • paragraph

    At HoldenCopley we believe in providing you with as much information as possible in order to assist you with your buying plans.

    This guide sets out the main aspects of buying a property and provides tips and guidance to help you along the way.

    Every situation is individual and our team of sales professionals will be pleased to advise you the options and best courses of action for your circumstances.

    What Can You Afford?

    Buying a property is a major decision involving a substantial long-term financial commitment, so it is important to think hard about what you can afford. You will need to consider the assets you have - e.g savings - as well as your income and outgoings.

    If seeking to purchase with a mortgage, we recommend taking professional financial advice to ensure that the best options for your circumstances are obtained.

    HoldenCopley can recommend an independent financial adviser.

    Obtaining A Mortgage?

    For most people buying a property, the biggest ongoing cost is the mortgage - simply a loan secured against a property. You can't sell the property without paying off the mortgage first and if you don't keep up the repayments the lender can repossess the property.

    It is vital that you secure a mortgage in principle with a lender before starting the searching process. This way, when you find the right property, you will avoid being beaten to it by another buyer and you'll also be in a much stronger negotiating position.

    Generally, the best mortgage deals available are when you can contribute a significant deposit.

    Our financial adviser will be able to find the best option for your circumstances.

    Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.

    Finding The Ideal Property

    You will need to consider what aspects of a property are most important to you:

    • Number of bedrooms/bathrooms?
    • Parking provisions?
    • Separate kitchen or dining room?
    • Private garden?
    • How much time/money you may want to spend redecorating etc?

    At HoldenCopley we can help you find exactly what type of property you are looking for and look at the elements that you could compromise on. We will take into consideration what you definitely don't want and whether you have a mortgage agreed in principle. Our sales professionals will be able to provide useful information about house prices, school performance, public transport links and other local amenities to help you with your search.

    Getting The Most Out Of Viewings

    We will provide you with as much information as possible to help you with your property search and help you to decide whether you wish to view. We provide high quality photographs, floorplans, virtual tours, online brochures and local information. If there is anything more you wish to know that is important to you we will do our best to provide it. As soon as you have established a property is of sufficient interest for you, contact us to book a viewing.

    Making An Offer & Negotiating The Purchase

    Once you have found the property of your dreams, the next step is to make an offer. It is important to consider all the things that matter before making your offer.

    First time buyers, buyers with no chain and buyers who have pre-arranged mortgages often have a head start on most of the competition. If this is you, then this can put you in a favourable negotiating position.

    Knowing your budget ceiling is crucial so decide your maximum limit from the start and stand firm. If your offer is not accepted, you will need to think very carefully whether you wish, or can afford to increase your offer.

    Once you make an offer, make it clear that it's subject to contract and a satisfactory survey. Once the seller has accepted your offer, you will need to move fast - the seller will want to see progress so try to avoid any unnecessary delays in getting the surveys and other legal work done.

    Complete any lender's application form and send them the documents they require - this will include proof of your ID, evidence of your earnings, proof of your address over the last few months and your bank statements, so have these ready.

    Your lender will arrange for a valuation to be done on the property. If you do not need a mortgage you will not need a survey, though buying a property without one is not advisable. If you are buying an older property, a property that needs repairs or just for your own peace of mind, you could consider getting a more detailed survey done than the basic lender's valuation.

    The lender will use the surveyor's Valuation Report and other information you provided to calculate how much it will allow you to borrow by way of mortgage secured on the property.

    What Happens Next?

    In England and Wales, Exchange of Contracts is the last stage of the legal process after which you cannot pull out and a completion date is agreed.

    Once everything is ready, you'll be asked to pay a deposit - usually 10% (but sometimes 5%) of the property value before contracts can be exchanged. If you pull out after this stage, you will lose your deposit and may face legal action from the seller. It is essential to have buildings insurance cover in place at this stage and you should also consider other protection such as life insurance.

    A date for completion is usually set for at least two weeks after contracts are exchanged. This should give you enough time to arrange moving in.

    Your conveyancer will call you to tell you when your money has arrived - so you can get the keys and move in. The conveyancer will also send you a completion statement. Read it carefully - it should reflect their original quotation.

    Completion Day

    It is unusual to hear from someone who didn't have a slightly stressful time moving but being organised is the trick to minimise your stress levels during this time.

    Here are some tips to make moving day as smooth as possible:

    • Use a good removal firm - HoldenCopley can recommend a good local firm who are members of the British Association of Removers who operate on a strict code of conduct
    • Mondays and Fridays are the busiest days on the roads and Fridays in particular are popular for moving house due to the weekend. This is however often reflected in both the availability and cost of a removal firm
    • Save time and cost by doing some of the packing yourself
    • Check out the best value utility contracts for your new property well in advance and read the meters in both properties on moving day
    • Redirect post well beforehand - this is especially essential to protect yourself from identity theft
    • If your new home comes with appliances, download the instruction manuals from the manufacturer's website

Additional Services

    Mortgages

    Our advisers have access to a wide range of exclusive mortgage deals that you will not find on the high street. From your initial mortgage enquiry, they will assign you your own dedicated adviser who will then guide you through the entire mortgage and house-buying process. Your adviser's job is to ensure that you understand all aspects of the transaction and that things run as smoothly and efficiently as possible for you.

    All advice on mortgages and financial services is provided by our recommended advisers who are 'Whole of Market' mortgage specialists.

    Our advisers have years of experience so let us take care of it all for you!

    Your home may be repossessed if you do not keep up repayments on your mortgage.

    Conveyancing

    Selling or buying a property is a legal process where both the seller and buyer appoint a legal representative to act for them and ensure that their interests and those of any lending institution are protected.

    Good communication and a proactive, solution conscious approach is required to help a transaction reach a successful conclusion.

    Our experience has enabled us to identify the best conveyancers and we would be pleased to discuss with you and agree the best option for your circumstances.

    Surveys

    When buying a property it is prudent to have a survey undertaken to ensure that you are aware of the properties condition and any repair liabilities that may exist.

    If you are arranging a mortgage, your lender will require a valuation report but this is not a survey or report on condition.

    There are different levels of survey that can be undertaken and we shall be pleased to advise and arrange both a quotation and for an inspection and report to be carried out.

    EPC Assessment

    When selling or letting a property it is a legal requirement to have an Energy Performance Certificate (EPC) in place at the time of marketing. An EPC provides a rating showing the energy efficiency of the property and is valid for ten years.

    Our qualified Domestic Energy Assessors can inspect and produce certificates at short notice.

    Clients selling a property with HoldenCopley benefit from the provision of a FREE EPC within our comprehensive marketing package.

    Legionella Assessment

    Landlords of residential accommodation (housing, flats etc.) have legal responsibilities for combating and preventing Legionnaires Disease. Health and Safety legislation requires that landlord's carry out Legionella risk assessments for the Legionella bacteria which cause the potentially fatal Legionnaires' disease.

    Most domestic rented premises will be low risk but as it is a potentially fatal disease it is important that you risk assess your rented residential premises.

    Our assessors can carry out the required risk assessment and report on whether any actions are needed to be undertaken.

    Virtual Property Tours

    Virtual property tours offer a unique way of showing your property online.

    Our trained staff are able to produce multi room virtual tours at short notice.

    Selling clients of HoldenCopley benefit from our 360° virtual tours which are invaluable in generating high quality enquiries from prospective buyers who appreciate the ability to "walk through" a property rather than just rely on static photography.

    Refurbishment Services

    Our years of experience and our relationships with approved contractors mean that we are well placed to advise clients on refurbishment plans including extensions. We can also obtain costings and project manage the works being implemented.

    Crucially, we are able to advise on maximising the returns on a property and the suitability of any proposals.

    Insurances

    Our advisers have access to a wide range of exclusive insurance products that will provide peace of mind.

    Buildings cover is essential for all property owners and landlords need to ensure that their policies are appropriate for properties that are let.

    Rent guarantee insurance will provide income replacement should a tenant default.

    Contents cover for both owner occupiers and tenants can protect the value of contents against damage or theft and can be extended to include items outside the home.

    Our advisers have years of experience so let us take care of it all for you!
