Buyers - The Buying Process

As a buyer you will be guided through the various stages of the property buying process by our expert team.  


Broadly speaking there are eight stages of the property buying process;


Stage 1 - Registering your details with us as an interested buyer either by registering online via our Home page or by calling us on 01912760550

Stage 2 - Having the necessary funds in place including a Mortgage Agreement in Principle if applicable and providing us with evidence of this or meeting with one of our Mortgage Advisers

Stage 3 - Viewing the property that you are interested in at a mutually convenient time with the vendor and/or one of our accompanied viewers

Stage 4 - Making an offer that is within your budget

Stage 5 - If your offer is accepted then instructing your Survey, Solicitor and getting your Mortgage application underway if applicable ASAP

Stage 6 - Receiving your Offer of Mortgage

Stage 7 - Exchanging contracts with the vendor via your Solicitor (this is the point of no return!)

Stage 8 - Completion


It is crucial that prior to making an offer that you have the funds in place to follow through with your offer, subject to survey.


First time buyers with no prior experience of buying will be offered additional care as we recognise that the process of buying a property can be daunting event for the more experienced person!
