Buying Guide

Whether you are buying your first home, or you are looking for your next property to rent, we will help you along every step of the way.

  • The London property market is notoriously competitive. By registering your interest with us as well as your property requirements, this will allow us to secure our clients an unfair advantage to give you exclusive access to newly listed homes.

  • At this stage, it is best advised that you put your finances, so you would have a clear indication of what your budget will look like

    We would also recommend getting in contact with a Mortgage Broker to have a mortgage agreed in principle. ‘Go 2 Mortgages’ is one of the leading mortgage advisers in West London and they are our recommended partner for exclusive access to the market and the best rates available.

    If you're also selling your current home, we would recommend listing your property before beginning the hunt for your new one. That way, you know you will be ready to sell once you come across your dream home.

  • With hundreds of new properties entering the market each week, filtering through all of them can be quite exhaustive! That's why we're dedicated in helping you find the right property that will suit your needs. As a boutique agency, we can avoid all the unnecessary tail-chasing that may arrive with buying your home through bigger agencies, so you should expect to have one dedicated point of contact who will cater all your needs throughout the process. Once you've narrowed your selection down to just one, or maybe a handful of properties, your dedicated agent will coordinate viewings of the properties so you can fully envision living with you and loved ones in the property.

  • A successful purchase needs a reliable and efficient solicitor. We've teamed up with Bhogal Partners as one of the most experienced and professional solicitor firms in the city.

  • By this stage, you would have found your dream home, and you're just a few steps away from arranging the movers to transport your furniture across! Once you have found your ideal home, you can make an offer by contacting your agent, and you can also let us know of any special conditions you may want to communicate to the seller.

    It is also best at this point to demonstrate. You can proceed by finalising your mortgage in principle and solicitor details. There are no legal obligations until the dotted line has been signed on either side.

  • 1. Prepare a memorandum of sale

    2. Confirm the agreed price with all parties

    3. Confirm your solicitor & mortgage details

    At this point, you will need to instruct your solicitor to proceed with conveyancing and your mortgage broker to proceed with the sale. As part of the conveyancing process, we will work closely with your solicitor and mortgage broker to negotiate the finer details throughout the process, keeping you informed along each step of the way.

  • Once an offer has been accepted and both parties are in agreement, we will arrange a surveyor to assess the property and identify any potential structural issues with the property, as well as advising on the property's value. Once the mortgage valuation is complete, a ‘Formal Offer’ will be sent to you and your solicitor which will need to sign before you return it.

  • Exchanging contracts will occur when all parties are in agreement, and it is at this stage that the deposit will be transferred to the seller's solicitor. The completion date will also be agreed upon at this point.

  • Completion is when the residual monies are transferred from your solicitor's to the seller's solicitor. This is usually 90% of the purchase price.

  • That's it! You're now the proud owner of your dream home. The only thing to do now is pop open the champagne to celebrate!
