Mortgage

 

In order to speed up your house buying process, it is advisable wherever possible; to get a mortgage agreed in principle before any final decision on your new property is made. This has the advantage of providing you with a clear indication of what is affordable and the fact that you have a mortgage agreed in principle is also attractive to sellers.

 

Making Your Offer

Once you have located your ideal property, your offer is will be submitted by us to the vendor for their consideration. This is done both verbally and in writing.

 

Accepted Offer/Instructing Solicitors

 

Straight away as your offer has been accepted by the vendor, you are able to instruct your solicitor to act on your behalf. Your solicitor will handle all legal requirements of your purchase. You also need to formally proceed with your mortgage application and instruct your mortgage consultant.

 

Survey

 

There is the next step to obtain the Mortgage Valuation, as required by law.

This is going to be conducted by a Chartered Surveyor acting for your Lender. The report is to provide a Valuation that is determine whether the amount to be loaned is secure and also deals with the basic condition of the property.

Since you as the buyer you also have to provide with a copy, it allows both parties to evaluate the findings prior to entering into a commitment to purchase.

 

Drafts Contracts

 

The draft contract is drawn up by the seller’s solicitor and is forwarded to the buyer’s solicitor for consideration.

 

Mortgage Offer

 

The Lender is now in possession of the Mortgage Valuation survey and, subject to the findings of this report; receipt/approval of the mortgage application and provided all references and checks have been conducted satisfactorily, the Lender will send a formal mortgage offer to the buyer and their solicitor. The document is then signed and returned and funds requested by the buyer’s solicitor.

 

Exchange of Contracts

 

Once the contract is has been signed by both parties, a deposit is paid by either bank transfer or banker’s draft. At this stage, the parties agree on a date for completion.

 

Completion

 

Completion usually follows a few days or weeks after exchange of contracts. The balance of the purchase price transferred by the buyer’s solicitor to the seller’s solicitor and the keys released.

 

 

EPC

 

All new buildings require an EPC that’s mean the Energy ratings for some years, showing by the colorful banded charts that rate the energy efficiency from A to G, with A being the most efficient.

The average is around £90, although we can offer them at a discounted rate.  We can arrange this on your behalf or you can find an assessor through the online EPC register.

 

Whether you’re getting an EPC, you will need to contact an accredited Domestic Energy Assessor (DEA).

 

 

The DEA will be looking at what insulation your home has. They’ll take into account the size, age, position and type of property.
