Buying a home

Buying a home

Buying a home is an exciting time.  It can also be an anxious time and our team is here to help you through each stage of the transaction, with understanding and experience.

If you are a first time buyer you will be in a strong position.  You may be able to use this to your advantage when negotiating the price of your property.  Be sure to factor in additional costs such as stamp duty land tax and search fees when calculating your costs.  We can help you with this so that you can budget properly.

If you are an unmarried couple and are buying a property together, one of you may have more to contribute towards the deposit than the other.  You should consider whether to protect your interest in the event of your relationship breaking down in the future while you still own the property.  In these circumstances, we would recommend that you enter into a declaration of trust to show exactly how you hold the property and how any future sale proceeds should be shared.

When buying or selling a property you need reliable, practical advice.  We provide a thorough, professional service at an affordable cost.

Please call us for a fixed price quote, or complete the Enquiry Form.
