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!

I recently used Romans Crowthorne and they were brilliant. Micheal was extremely helpful, went out of his way on several occasions and had the answers to all the questions we had. Responses to phone calls and emails was always prompt and helpful. Micheal was lots of help and very genuine

I have always been very sceptical of estate agents in general. I am in the process of buying a property facilitated by Romans in Crowthorne and I must say I have been very impressed by the professionalism by them. Especially dealing with Michael who has actually changed my opinion on estate agents for the better! He has been honest and upfront with great communication throughout this whole process so far. I would highly recommend them. I was looking at a few properties before making the decision and you can totally see the difference in how you are treated by different estate agents.

You can consider you have the keys to your new home and consider it all done if Lyndsey deals with your file. She is the superwoman of Romans. :) All other Staff at Romans are super quick and professional. Special thanks to Stephanie who have been so helpful and friendly throughout the process.
