Buying a House Only

When you are just buying a house, without selling another, there are still a number of fees to account for! These can include the cost of moving your belongings, your deposit for the new property and legal fees. Our handy calculator can quickly tell you the expected costs of your new home purchase.

Set Your Budget

You need to ensure you have a figure in mind for how much you want to spend on your new home - this will depend on how much of a deposit you have, alongside how much you can afford to borrow as a mortgage. Don't forget to add on the costs of redecorating, stamp duty and removals!

Finances & Mortgages

There are different types of mortgages available, so make sure you look at all your options when you sort out your finances. Get a mortgage application in early rather than later, and a "mortgage in principle" will leave you in a stronger position when you begin to view potential homes.

Choose Your Property

View property you are interested in buying and make sure you look at all the details - you don't want any hidden surprises later on. You can even look to purchase an RICS Homebuyers Report which will provide you with a good amount of information regarding the property you like.

Offers and Prices

House prices are often a little different from what you actually have to pay. Most people put in an offer which is near the asking price and expect to negotiate the price. You speak to the seller via their estate agent who relays your messages and offers to them.

Legal Matters

It's important that you use a qualified legal representative such as a solicitor or conveyancing expert to get you through the buying process smoothly. Without a legal representative, the process of moving house becomes very daunting, quickly.

Exchange & Completion

Once all the checks and surveys have been done, it's time to exchange and complete! Exchange is a legal term for the contracts being sent between buyer and seller (see here for advice). Once this happens, the contract becomes legally binding and your deposit is paid. Completion usually occurs a number of weeks after exchange, where you become the new owner!
