Source a Mortgage Agreement in Principle and make an offer
It's important at this stage to consider other costs when buying a property, including surveyor and solicitor fees. Bentley Hurst works with Embrace financial services, who can provide help and guidance throughout the process. Embrace gives you access to thousands of mortgage deals from high-street lenders, sourced and reviewed by experts. When you have the mortgage agreed in principle, it’s time to make the offer. Make sure you can 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, legal and survey
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 works with a panel of carefully selected property lawyers, solicitors and conveyancing firms and can even advise you as you book in a survey for the property, whether that’s a mortgage valuation survey, a homebuyer survey, or a full building survey.
Closing the sale
Once you're ready to go ahead and any required finances are in place, your conveyancer will proceed with the legal process. We will ensure the purchase of your new home is going through as quickly and smoothly as possible throughout the process, with frequent communication and reliable advice. And when your conveyancer has confirmed your purchase has exchanged and completed, you can collect the keys to your new home!
