The Process of Buying PropertyWhether you are a first time property buyer in Telford or looking to step onto the property ladder, a seasoned investor or maybe looking to upsize, our friendly and helpful staff are looking forward to helping you make your move, and to guide you through the process.
We recommend you ensure your finances are organised before you begin your property search, this will allow you to know how much money you will have to fund the purchase. If you need to arrange a mortgage Belvoir can introduce you to full market mortgage brokers for both Residential and Buy To Let Mortgages.
Arranging Your Finances

Let Us Know Your Requirements
When we know your property requirements we can find a range of properties that meet your criteria. We can also ensure you are kept up to date with the latest properties via email. If we don’t have what you want let us know as we can set up a lifestyle property profile in the area you want and help you find what you want.
Finding the Right Property
We offer accompanied viewings with a knowledgeable Belvoir representative to ensure that an experienced advisor is on hand to answer any queries. We arrange viewings for times that are convenient for you.
The successful purchase of a property can be reliant on the instruction of an efficient and experienced solicitor. We strongly recommend that you use a solicitor that specialises in conveyancing who knows the area where the property is. If you don’t have a preferred conveyancing company we can put you in touch with experts within Shropshire.
Appointing a Solicitor
When you have found a property you would like to make an offer on we will put your offer forward to the vendor both verbally and in writing. At this stage you will need to provide required information to verify you are able to proceed with the purchase (e.g. produce evidence of your mortgage agreed in principle and proof of other funds if needed). This will save time when you make an offer, especially in a dynamic market. Until both sides have signed the contracts there are no legal obligations.
Making an Offer
Once the vendor has accepted your offer we will:
• Prepare a memorandum of sale
• Write to all parties to confirm the agreed price
• Request that you confirm your solicitor's and mortgage broker's details
At this time you will need to inform your solicitor to proceed with the conveyancing process and your mortgage broker to go forward with your application.
Your solicitor will do the following as part of the conveyancing process:
• Raise any enquiries on receipt of the draft contract from the vendor’s solicitor
• Request their own local searches
• Refer to the information already provided in the seller's Home Information Pack
• Agree on a date for exchange of contracts
A surveyor will organise a survey of the property on the behalf of the mortgage provider to identify any structural problems that may be present and to confirm the value of the property.
Survey and Mortgage Offer
There are no legal obligations until contracts are signed.
The formal exchange of contracts agrees the terms of the sale and makes them legally binding on both you and the buyer. The deposit will then be transferred from your solicitor to the vendors solicitors account. Once this has happened then a completion date will be agreed with the vendor.
Exchange of Contracts
When the remaining money has been transferred via solicitors the purchase is complete. Once the money has cleared in the vendors account then the keys will be released.
Congratulations, you are now the legal owner of the property and we will be pleased to help you family and friends do the same.
