It can be the most exciting time, buying your first home, or any new home. It can also be a passage into the unknown and a little overwhelming. At Let’s Move we are here to guide you through the sales process and assist you every step of the way.

Initially you will have some idea of which type of property you are looking for, you will also need to find out what you can afford to pay, and create a list of wants and needs for your property. Once you have more of an idea you can begin looking at and viewing potential properties. If you see a property you particularly like and you require a mortgage, it would be a good idea at this stage to talk to a mortgage/financial advisor about any potential borrowing you may require. You will also need to obtain a mortgage in principle, if you require a mortgage for the purchase of the property. You may then proceed to:

  • Call, email or message us via our website to arrange a viewing.
  • We will ask you a few questions to build background information with regard to your status and financial position.
  • We will contact the seller to arrange a suitable time for you to view the property
  • If you like the property you may make an offer to purchase (based on your mortgage in principle and financial position)
  • We will forward your offer to the seller for consideration and inform you if it is accepted or not.
  • Offer accepted? You should now instruct a conveyancer/solicitor to assist you with the legal process of buying a property.
  • We will ask you for valid ID documentation and proof of address to comply with Anti Money Laundering Legislation.
  • We will forward memorandum of sales to conveyancers to confirm the sale and your instruction.
  • If you are having a mortgage, you should inform your mortgage provider that an offer has been accepted on a property and begin the mortgage application process.
  • Your mortgage lender will arrange a survey to assess the value of the property for mortgage purposes.
  • Your conveyancer will carry out searches and prepare pre-contract documentation. They will raise any queries that may arise with the seller’s conveyancer.
  • We will carry out regular progression on your property purchase, through to completion, liaising with seller’s, agents, conveyancers and mortgage advisors to ensure the smooth completion of your purchase. We will assist with any queries you may have and will report back to you with any developments.
  • Once all the contract documentation and searches are checked and any enquiries have been raised and resolved by both parties, your conveyancer will report to the seller’s conveyancer with regard to exchange and completion dates. Your conveyancer will request the deposit be transferred to them in readiness for exchange.  Exchange and completion can be carried out on the same day, or separately with completion at a later date.  You will be legally committed to the transaction following exchange of contracts.
  • Exchange of contracts will take place on a date agreed by both parties.
  • You will need to arrange property insurance prior to exchange of contracts.
  • Completion Day! You will now own your new home and will receive the keys.
