Buying A Home With BHW ResidentialTake The Stress Out Of Buying, Selling And Remortgaging Your Property

1

Instruct a Solicitor

Once your offer has been accepted on a property, contact us and we'll send you an engagement letter, including a request for two forms of identification (for each named buyer). We will also send a letter to the seller's solicitors confirming that we are acting on your behalf and requesting they provide a contract package including a draft contract.

2

Investigate Title & Enquiries

We check the title to the property and raise any necessary enquiries with the seller's solicitors.

3

Pre-Contract Searches

We carry out a number of searches on the property. These searches will depend on the location of the property, your requirements and your lender's requirements.

4

Mortgage Offer

We check your mortgage offer and let you know of any special conditions of which you should be aware.

5

Property Report

Once we have received and reviewed the title, your mortgage offer, the search results and replies to any enquiries raised, we will prepare a report for you and arrange for you to sign the purchase paperwork. We will also request the deposit from you.

6

Exchange

We contact the seller's solicitors to exchange contracts. Once both parties have signed and dated a copy of the contract they are both legally bound to the completion date.

The signed contracts are then exchanged by post, and your deposit cheque is sent to the seller's solicitors.

7

Pre-Completion Searches

We will carry out a Land Registry priority search and, if you are having a mortgage, a bankruptcy search.

8

Prepare for Completion

We will request your mortgage advance from the lender (if applicable) and any balance money from you.

9

Completion

On the day of completion we will arrange for the purchase money to be sent to the seller's solicitors. Once this is received the purchase is complete and you can move in!

10

Post-Completion Matters

We deal with post-completion formalities, like registering the property in your name at the Land Registry and submitting the Stamp Duty Land Tax Transaction Return, so you can focus on enjoying your new home.
