The Process of Buying a House With Ringrose Law?

Buying a house can feel confusing, no matter how many times you’ve been through the process. The process might vary slightly based on individual circumstances. However, these steps provide an overview of what you can expect when buying a house;

Step 1: Setting Your Budget

Before you start house hunting, you need to make sure you know how much you can afford to borrow. Figure this out by adding up your income, savings, and any investments you have.

Step 2: Arrange a Mortgage in Principle

It’s a good idea to get a mortgage in principle before house hunting. This is a non-binding agreement from a lender. It tells you how much they might be willing to lend you based on your financial circumstances.

Step 3: Find a Property

Once you know how much you might be able to borrow, you can start looking for your dream home. You can do this through estate agents, property websites, or local listings. When you find a property you like, arrange to view it in person.

When you find a property, you want to buy, the next step is to make an offer to the seller through the estate agent. When your offer is accepted, the paperwork will begin.

Step 4: Hire a Conveyancing Solicitor

At this point, you’ll hire us to handle the legal aspects. We’ll draft contracts, conduct property searches, and liaise with the seller’s solicitor.

Step 5: Get Property Survey

Before you complete the purchase, it’s wise to get a property survey done. This will identify any structural issues or necessary repairs. These might influence your decision to buy the property or the price you’re willing to pay for it.

Step 6: Finalise Mortgage and Contract

Based on the survey results, you might want to renegotiate your offer. Once agreed, you can formally apply for a mortgage. Meanwhile, we’ll finalise the draft contract and detail the terms of the sale.

Step 7: Exchange Contracts

Once you and the seller are satisfied with the terms of sale, we’ll exchange contracts. This makes the agreement legally binding. At this point, you’ll need to pay your deposit to the seller.

Step 8: Prepare for Completion

Between the contract exchange and completion, we’ll prepare the transfer deed and make arrangements for you to pay the outstanding balance. You should also finalise your moving arrangements during this time.

Step 9: Completion

On the agreed completion date, we will transfer the remaining funds to the seller’s solicitor. Once received, the seller will hand over the keys, and you can move into your new home. we’ll then register the transfer of ownership with the Land Registry.

Step 10: After Completion

After moving in, it’s time to settle into your new home. Make sure to notify every one of your changes of address and set up necessary utilities and services. We will also pay the Stamp Duty Land Tax.
