Buying your first home: the process

Work out your budget

Buying your first home involves a number of stages. Knowing what you can afford and establishing a budget is a great starting point. Before viewing properties, a mortgage adviser can help you work out a realistic budget. Finding your ideal first home in a competitive property market can be challenging, but with the right support discovering what you like and imagining your future in a property can be an exciting part of the process.

Assess the Home Report

Once you have found your perfect home, we can request the Home Report on your behalf. Our property experts will scrutinise the Home Report and advise you on the condition of the property. If you are interested in a property but not prepared to commit to making a formal offer, we can note interest on your behalf. This will serve to notify the seller and estate agent of your interest, and you will be kept informed of matters concerning the property, for example potential closing dates.

Make an offer

Once you are ready, we will submit a formal offer on your behalf. The offer will contain the offered purchase price, the date of entry and any other conditions or qualifications you may wish to be included. The seller will consider your offer and possible counter-offers may be exchanged until an agreement is reached. Our Property Law Solicitors have years of experience in negotiating property purchases and will represent your best interests throughout this process.

Conveyancing and completion

Once an agreement is reached, this will form the binding contract between the seller and purchaser known as the missives. Our property law experts will then proceed with the necessary conveyancing formalities and perform the relevant checks and searches. If these are all in order, payment of funds will be made and ownership of the property will be transferred to you. We will also prepare the Title Deed in your favour and ensure that your title is registered in the Land Register.

Conveyancing FAQs

Buying a property is a momentous life decision and you are likely to have a number of questions about the process. Our highly responsive team is here to answer all your queries and keep you informed throughout.

We offer the highest standards of legal advice and guidance without complicated hidden costs. Contact our Property Law and Conveyancing Team for a no obligation discussion and fixed fee quote.

What are searches?

Searches are carried out on a property to determine important information about the building before purchase. Searches will ensure that the seller has title to the property and identify any burdens that may affect your use and enjoyment of the property. This is an important step in the purchase of any home and is often required by mortgage providers. We conduct all the necessary searches and checks on your behalf and will advise you in the event that anything unexpected or onerous is identified.

When can we move in?

The date of entry will be specified in the offer we make on your behalf. Once the missives are concluded, we will transfer the purchase price value to the seller’s solicitors and in return receive the keys to the property. We will take care of the registration of your title while you enjoy making your first house a home.
