Is online conveyancing a cheaper option?
In today’s market getting the best deal in the housing market is the ultimate goal for most first time buyers and whilst you can look up housing online, it has always been a struggle to do any other aspect of the house buying process through the internet. online conveyancing has always been a big issue, but with some top law firms now, this has become possible to complete your house move only having to meet with solicitors once to sign and exchange contracts. For first time buyers getting an initial mortgage arrangement put in place is essential, you will also need a good deposit on the property, this can stand at around 40,000, as a large initial deposit is now required by most banks.
The estate agents will not accept any offer nowadays without a firm offer from a bank being in place, and proof of this is required by the estate agents before they will take any property off the market.
Ensure that you have a good solicitor in place and one which will keep you informed about every aspect of your purchase. Buying any house can be frustrating at times, but a first time buy should go through smoothly especially if there is no chain involved in the sale.
Always make sure that you have a survey in place on the property you are buying, do not rely on the fact that the previous owner has had a survey done, as many things can change over the course of time and airing on the side of caution is always worth doing.
