Buying your first home

Buying your first home is an exciting time. Before you decide where you are planning to put the furniture you have managed to collect together you may want to consider a few things.

Before looking at buying your first home you will need to make sure that you have a deposit saved. Generally, this is between 5% to 20% of the value of the property.

It is not only the cost of the property you will need to consider on top of this you will have to pay other costs. Look at our charges page for more details or contact us for a bespoke quote.

On top of this you will have to consider

  • removal fees
  • survey costs
  • buildings insurance
  • furnishings and decorations
  • mortgage arrangement
  • valuation fees
  • stamp duty

This is not an exhaustive list of things to consider.

There are some government backed schemes available to first time buys so it might be wise to look at these to see if any can help you.

Once you have had your offer accepted contact us to find out what you need to do next. We can help you through the process.

We are always ready to help and can give you the advice you need to make sure that your transaction runs as smoothly as possible.
