The market can be a confusing and turbulent place at times, but we are here to help make the process as hassle free as possible. With our extensive experience in buying and selling properties we have collated the following advice to help you in the offer making process.
However, if you would prefer we can do the property search for you, find out more about how we can help with your search here
Making an Offer
Prior to making an offer you will need to ensure you have a solicitor in place. From our experience, we advise that you use a London solicitor, as we have found this eases the process. If you do not have one, we can give you a selection of solicitors that we have worked with in the past.
With some purchases we may need proof of funds. This can be in the form of a bank statement, or a letter from your solicitor stating that you are in funds for the purchase of the property. Unfortunately, due to some timewasters, these checks are requested by some sellers to ensure the purchase proceeds smoothly.
Having Your Offer Accepted
On having an offer accepted we will require the following documents so that we can comply with UK Money Laundering regulations:
- Photographic ID from the buyer
- Copy of a utility bill / bank statement / proof of address
