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!

Luke was a pleasure to deal with as first time buyers, it can be daunting going into the process, but Luke was really professional, efficient and knowledgeable. The solicitors and surveyor he recommend were amazing as well. The overall process was smooth from start to finish.

I can't thank Romans enough for making my first time buyer experience so easy. From the very first viewing, I was very impressed with the level of service and professionalism. Arun did an excellent job answering any queries that I had and also arranging subsequent re-visits to the flat. Romans also ensured I was regularly updated during the entire process.

As a first time buyer Paula and others at Romans had been of great help, guided us in all possible way to speed up the buying process, I would strongly recommend Romans for entering the property ladder as they had been of great help in getting things done quickly and efficiently in a reliable way.
