Making an offer

So now you think you've found your dream home. It's time to make an offer...

When making an offer you will need to provide the following information: your offer price, your buying position, proof of funds, mortgage/ agreement in principle, proof of ID and proof of address, as well as your solicitor’s details.

Acceptance of offer

Great news, your offer has been accepted! The next thing you need to do is choose a conveyancing specialist to act for you in buying the property. Bentley Hurst work with a panel of carefully selected property lawyers, solicitors and conveyancing firms. You will benefit from a no move, no legal fee guarantee (excluding disbursements), giving you peace of mind that you can move forward with the purchase of your dream home.

Book in a property survey

There are three types of survey: a mortgage valuation, a homebuyer survey, and a full building survey. We always recommend having a survey, but it is up to you which survey you go ahead with. If you're taking out a mortgage your lender will insist you have a mortgage valuation.

Sales Progression

Once you're ready to go ahead and any required finances are in place your conveyancer will proceed with the legal process. At Bentley Hurst, we will ensure the purchase of your new home is going through as quickly and smoothly as possible by holding your hand throughout the process. You will receive frequent communication and reliable advice throughout.

Exchange, complete and move in

Once your conveyancer has confirmed your purchase has exchanged and completed, you can collect the keys to your new home!
