    Bringing together buyers and sellers is the heart of our business. We honestly believe that nobody in central Somerset is better placed, or better qualified to deliver this service, which is such an important event in your life.

    The Experts in Property Group

    We are part of the The Experts in Property network. That means your property will be marketed not just by our three Holland & Odam offices in mid-Somerset, but 100 other independent estate agents around the country, including London.

    That puts your property in front of many, many more buyers than you'd normally get, creates extra competition for the property you are selling, and ensures that you are in the driving seat when it comes to negotiations.

    If you would like to arrange a free, no obligation valuation of your property, please complete the property valuation form and we will contact you as soon as possible.

    image cannot be displayed

    When, or ideally before, you start your property search, it's worth making sure you have your finances in place. If you have money in savings or shares, make sure you can access them easily and that there aren't any fixed timelines to withdrawal. If you need a mortgage call our independent financial adviser Woodward Insurance & Mortgage Services. They will not only identify lender and type of mortgage that is best for you but will also do the legwork and the paperwork, leaving you to get on with all the other important things going on in your life at this time. 01458 840404

  • paragraph

    Offer Making

    Once we've found a property for you that you like, discuss with us the offer you would like to make. We will ask you to confirm how you intend to fund the purchase of your property and availability of the deposit (usually 10% of purchase price). If you already have a mortgage arranged, we will ask you to provide an agreement in principle (AIP) document and we will require the details of your financial advisor so that we can clarify the time frame that will be involved for processing your application. If you are buying without a mortgage (a 'cash buyer') you will also need to provide evidence of finance.

    What Happens Next...
  • paragraph

    The Survey

    If you are buying with a mortgage, a survey of the property will be booked by a surveyor on behalf of the mortgage lender. This is to protect their interests by valuing the property and highlighting any major defects that would negatively affect the security of their loan.

  • paragraph

    The Mortgage Offer

    Once your mortgage lender has received the survey report and are satisfied the loan amount is realistic given the valuation, they will issue a mortgage offer to your solicitor.

  • paragraph

    The Conveyancing

    Once an offer has been agreed between you and the seller, we will contact each party's solicitors to confirm the details of the sale. Offers are not legally binding until contracts have been exchanged. From now until exchange, you will need to be in close communication with your solicitor and our Sales Progressors will also be in regular contact with you and your solicitor, as well as the sellers and their solicitor, and the solicitor of any other people in your chain to make sure that your purchase goes through and on time.

  • paragraph

    Exchange of Contracts

    Exchanging contracts is the moment when the sale becomes legally binding on both sides. You can only exchange once you have paid a cleared deposit (usually 10% of the purchase price) to your solicitor's account. Your solicitor will tell you and us when contracts have been exchanged. The completion date is then set by mutual agreement and is also contractually binding.

    • Seller Testimonial

      I would heartily recommend them to anyone
      Your company has recently sold my bungalow in Chilton Polden and negotiated the purchase of my new property - perhaps not a lot of money all told for you - but the ladies in particular, with who I had most of my dealings with at your Street office have been most helpful, courteous, very professional and always with a smile on their faces, it was indeed a pleasure to work with them. I wanted you to know that the team spirit throughout works very well there and I would heartily recommend them to anyone. 
    • Seller Testimonial

      Knowledge of local buyers and the market
      Jack and Sue, I appreciate all your hard work on the sale of the house and in achieving an asking price offer so quickly. Your knowledge of local buyers and the market has paid dividends and I am very grateful for that

    • Seller Testimonial

      Thanks for all your support
      Just a little note and a small token of my appreciation for finding such a lovely flat for my Mum, showing us all around and then sticking with us through 'thick and thin' when we had an enormous upset following her fall at Christmas. She is now pretty good, walking quite well and looking forward to life surrounded by all her Somerset family. Big thanks for all your support and best wishes to you all for the future.
