ListenIt is essential for us to listen to what you want out of your property buying experience and be there to support and meet your needs offering our expertise and personal guidance where relevant.
Arrange viewingsAt Chase Holmes we are able to arrange viewings for the properties you select on any day of the week and to ensure we are meeting your exact requirements we ask for feedback, which will help to further clarify your requirements.
Making an offerOnce you have decided that a property is right for you we will put your offer to the vendor, both verbally and in writing.
Any offer is subject to a contract being signed, prior to which there is no legal obligation. The decision on the price offered is made by you and the seller must decide whether to accept this price.
It is important to remember you should only pay what you believe the property is worth.
Progressing a saleOnce your offer to buy a property has been accepted, it is essential you instruct a solicitor to carry out the conveyancing as soon as possible.
At Chase Holmes we are able to recommend a solicitor that can provide you with the right support through the process of buying your new home.
In addition, you will also need to contact your building society / bank or mortgage broker to progress your mortgage application. It will be our role to liaise with all parties to ensure the process progresses smoothly. If you would like us to arrange for you to speak to one of our Independent Financial Advisors, FREE of charge, then please let us know.
Exchange of contractsWhen your mortgage is in place, your solicitor has all the legal questions answered and all other parties involved are ready, contracts are exchanged, signed by both the buyer and seller. It is at this point the completion date is finalised.
A deposit, usually 10% of the purchase price is also paid to your solicitor at this point.
CompletionOn the completion date, the balance of the monies are transferred from the buyer's solicitors to the seller's solicitors. Keys to your new home can then be released and your move to your new home can then take place.
