OUR BUYERS GUIDE
What Should I Do First?
Our top tip for buyers even before starting to look for property is to get clear on finances. If a mortgage is involved it's worth meeting with a financial adviser who can get a mortgage agreed in principle for you and discuss the costs of moving.
Finding A Property
Whilst there is a wealth of information available on popular property websites such as Rightmove and Zoopla, registering with us so that we understand your requirements and can advise you of new properties as soon as they are available is important too.
Make An Offer
Once you have found your possible new home make an offer and we will put this forward to the owner in writing as well as verbally. The owner may require evidence of your ability to proceed with the transaction. Having a mortgage agreed in principle may help at this stage.
Instructing A Conveyancer
Once the offer is agreed we will prepare a notification of sale and write to all parties outlining the agreed price, special conditions and broad timescales. You will need to appoint a Conveyancer. Oakfield can help you with this if you don't already have one in mind.
Our Marketing Consultants are experienced in sales progression and have an excellent knowledge of the process. We keep all parties informed every step of the way so you are aware of timescales and in the event an issue should arise we will work with all parties to get this resolved as a matter of urgency to ensure no unnecessary delays.
Exchange & Completion
When the finances are available, all enquiries have been agreed and the contract has been signed, we are ready to exchange. At this point a completion date is agreed and the buyer will put down a deposit which is normally 10%. On completion day the balance is transferred and you can come and pick up your keys.
HOW MUCH CAN I AFFORD?
At Oakfield Estate Agents we understand that our involvement after sale is agreed is equally as important to ensure that the conveyancing process runs as smoothly as possible and is not held up with any unnecessary delays in getting the sale through to completion. This is why we have selected highly experienced and professional Solicitors to recommend to both you and your buyer to use for your conveyancing.
Oakfield Estate Agents have good working relationships with these Conveyancers and we deal with them on a daily basis, ensuring we get updates on your sale meaning we can keep you fully informed throughout the process. We know there is nothing more frustrating for Vendors and Buyers alike than not knowing at what stage the Conveyancing is at and the time scales everyone is working to. Rest assured you will always be kept up to date.
In addition Oakfield are extremely hands on with this process and where possible we can assist with chasing information and relay this between parties minimising the usual delays you could experience.
With Conveyancing companies offering fees ranging from the very cheap to very expensive we understand that for our Clients value for money is very important. The Conveyancers we work with offer an excellent service for a competitive and transparent fee.
