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!

We had a great experience with Romans Bracknell - especially our agent Keziah Davies! She always kept us up to date with information and called anytime a property matched our search criteria! Taking off the stress of looking for a new home! Great service and we look forward to the next two years in our new home!

As a buyer, Jack provided excellent service throughout the very long (thanks Covid...) process - excellent communication, realistic and pragmatic conversations, and always a cheery attitude. We're now in the thick of making our new home 'home' - thanks for helping make this happen

Very positive experience dealing with Romans for sale and purchase. Nothing was too much trouble. We particularly appreciated the responsiveness and professionalism of the sales team - Daniel and Michael. We would certainly recommend.
