Contact your nearest Nock Deighton Office. The friendly staff will be keen to meet you and get to know all about you in order to try and put you in touch with the very best properties that meet your criteria, so invest some time and think about the following:
Which are the areas you would like to be buying in?
Are there any other areas that you perhaps hadn't considered?
What type of property do you envisage purchasing?
What are your key 'Must Haves' & 'Don't Wants'
Have you decided on you budget?
In what timescale are you looking to move?
If you need to sell, have you made any preparations to place your home on the market?
Have you spoken to a Financial Advisor to see what amount of money you may be able to borrow?
Once a sale has been agreed, the office will allocate main point of contact between all parties involved in the transaction. That person will also be there to help guide you every step of the way and to assist where at all possible. Your immediate priority is to:
Instruct a recommended local solicitor with experience of your chosen area.
Instruct your IFA/ Mortgage broker (if applicable) to commission a survey on the property.
Once the legal (or 'conveyancing') work has been carried out and your finances are in order, you will be in a position to 'exchange contracts' prior to the agreed 'completion', at which point you can take possession of your new home.
Invest time in your agent; the better they understand your needs, the more they can help.
Make sure everybody who needs to see the property has seen it before you offer.
This is an exciting yet sometimes stressful time for all involved. Be aware of the feelings of all those involved in the transaction and try and react logically and calmly to the ups and downs of the transaction
Get your ducks in a row; there are thousands of mortgage products on the market. Consult an independent mortgage advisor who can tailor the product to your needs.
Don't judge a book by its cover - no property will look like home until you have moved in!
