8 simple steps to buying your next home

start hunting

Step 2: Start home hunting!

Register for property alerts and speak to the team at your local Romans branch so they can let you know as soon as new properties come onto the market.

viewings

Step 3: Viewings

Visit the properties you like at different times of the day and always make notes. To make it more convenient you may now be able to view the property virtually, at a time and place convenient to you, before attending a physical viewing. 

organise conveyancer

Step 4: Organise your conveyancer

Be prepared and do some research so you know which conveyancer you want to use. They look after all of the legal work involved when buying a house, including stamp duty. Request your bespoke conveyancing quote.

make offer

Step 5: Making an offer

The exciting part - you've found your dream home! Think carefully about your budget as well as the competition from other buyers, as this can drive offers beyond the asking price.

arrange survey

Step 6: Arrange a property survey

Your mortgage lender will usually insist on a Mortgage Valuation, but we also highly recommend you arrange a HomeBuyer report or Building Survey so you know exactly what you're buying.

finalise mortgage

Step 7: Finalise your mortgage

Check your Mortgage Offer carefully (with the help of your conveyancer) and arrange your life and building insurances to cover the loan.

exchange

Step 8: Exchange of contracts & completion

Once contracts are exchanged you are legally bound to go through with the purchase. You can then agree on a completion date and the keys to your new home will be handed over!

Sam Bailey at Romans looked after me throughout the process of offering and purchasing a flat. He was extremely patient, helpful and applied the same high level duty of care through the entire process. In my experience this is quite rare and I would absolutely purchase through Romans and in particular get Sam's support on any future purchases.

Great agency, I recommend them if you're planning to buy/sell a property. In particular I would like to thanks Callum White that assisted me in the process. They have been really helpful and responsive. They also introduced me to a great independent mortgage adviser and solicitor. I'll rely on them again in the future!
