At Boulton & Griffiths we are mindful that a property purchase is not only exciting, but can be a little daunting. Our aim is to ensure that we are as helpful as possible and are here to guide you through your property transaction. We will work closely with your Solicitor and Mortgage Broker, if appropriate, to ensure that your purchase is as stress free as possible. Please ask for any assistance in relation to the progress of your transaction at any time.
Transaction times vary from case to case. An average transaction takes approximately 6 to 12 weeks, with the national average currently being 11 weeks. You should discuss specific times frames with your solicitor.
In the event that you have any questions for us, please do not hesitate to Contact us
You may feel your question is obvious & you may feel that you should know the answer and therefore do not want to ask. We would encourage you to ask, as we are more than happy to help. We appreciate that you may have not purchased a house before or could find the process difficult, so please do not be reluctant to call.
What you need to do
- Ensure that your mortgage application is in hand and ensure that you let your chosen solicitor know who your mortgage broker is along with their telephone number. This will allow your solicitor to make contact with your broker if there is a delay or if assistance is needed.
- Please ensure you return all documentation that is sent to you from your solicitor as quickly as possible. Your solicitor will ask for proof of your identity and money on account. Ensure that these are sent to your solicitor, or your transaction may be delayed.
- You must decide whether you wish to have a survey carried out on the property. Your mortgage company will carry out a survey for mortgage purposes, but this does not give you any protection. If you need any more assistance in relation to a survey please do not hesitate to contact us or your solicitor.
