Lets begin

Your buying journey starts here

Step 1 - Initial internal assessment (if you are buying a shared ownership home)

It’s not as ominous as it sounds – we will confirm if you are eligible for the property you have chosen and carry out a quick affordability assessment with you.

Step 2 - Viewing

We’ll make an appointment for you to view the property so you can have good look around, make sure it’s the one for you and ask any questions.

Step 3 - Reservation

You’ve made your choice and you can secure your property with a reservation fee (we will take this fee out of the money we receive on completion).

Step 4 - Financial assessment

At this stage you will need to have a full financial assessment with an independent financial advisor.

Step 5 - Choose a solicitor

You can choose a solicitor now to help purchase your new home.  If needed, make sure you choose one who is experienced in shared ownership sales, we can recommend some for you to choose from.

Step 6 - Notification of sale

You’re nearly there. We will send an instruction of sale to your solicitor and ours to begin the conveyancing process.  You have 28 days to exchange contracts.

Step 7 - Home demonstration

After exchanging contracts and before your sale completes, you will have the opportunity to view your home and learn how everything works.

Step 8 - Completion

On the day of completion, the money to buy your home is transferred from your solicitor to ours.  We will arrange to meet you at your new home to give you your keys.
