Buying

Helping you to buy your next home...

...from start to finish Homes William Charles are here to help!



Buying a property is exciting but it can also be daunting if you have not bought or sold for a while. Whether you are a first-time buyer, investor, moving up the property ladder or downsizing. Whatever the reason, we are on hand to help you every step of the way. It is a good idea to have a clear idea of ‘must haves’ and the ‘nice to haves’ that you are prepared to compromise on. If you have a specific area in mind, be realistic about your budget and your criteria. Also, bear in mind how your lifestyle might change while you are living in your new home. Think about distance to local amenities, train stations, town centres. Once you have made your list, speak to us and we will register you, so you get all our new properties sent to you before going live on the market to everyone else. In today’s market it is important to be at the front of the queue and get a viewing in early.

Once you have decided on the above, the next step is to think about how you are going to finance the move. Most people use a combination of a mortgage and a deposit. If you would like to know more about mortgages, please contact us on sales@william-charles.co.uk

Choosing the right solicitor or conveyancer

The name of your solicitor will be needed before any offer is fully accepted, so make sure you appoint one in good time. A good solicitor can make all the difference to the home-buying process and help everything go smoothly.

The legal work carried out during home buying is known as conveyancing which involves carrying out searches, approving a draft contract, raising enquiries, organising the exchange of contracts and so much more.

Make sure you ask your solicitor for a breakdown of their fees before you give the go-ahead for conveyancing to begin. Charges for legal fees vary and it will help with your financial planning to know what the fee will be in advance. Alternatively, you can let William Charles take the worry out of selecting a solicitor in association with Lifetime Legal.

Their solicitors offer a no move, no fee service at a guaranteed price and with financial protection. Take a look at our conveyancing page or call us on
