Step 2:

GET YOUR FINANCES IN ORDER

Before you begin your property search, it is advisable to arrange your finances and, if required, have a mortgage agreed in principle. This will confirm how much money you will have to fund the purchase, which will ultimately influence your property search.

This will confirm how much money you will have to fund the purchase, which will ultimately influence your property search. If you require a mortgage to buy the property you may be dealing with a bank or building society, either directly or through an advisor. SunnyBay is not allowed by law to give you any financial advice but we might refer you to an adviser with which he has links or which is a separate part of the same company. We will not have access to the records of the mortgage provider or adviser and have no control over the progress of any mortgage application.

Instructing a solicitor
The successful purchase of a property can be reliant on the instruction of an efficient and experienced solicitor. It is a good idea to use a solicitor who knows the area that you're moving to and specialises in conveyance.

Step 7:

EXCHANGE CONTRACTS

Your solicitor will contact you to confirm your deposit money, you will need to transfer this amount to your solicitor. This acts as a binding agreement between you and the seller. At this point you should also get a quote for buildings and content insurance.
A completion date will have been negotiated between your solicitor and the sellers. Make sure your mortgage lender is ready to release funds in advance of your completion date, Once funds have cleared your solicitor will confirm that deeds have been transferred and our purchase is complete. The legal documents needed to transfer ownership are handed over to the buyer. The property now belongs to the buyer.
