The Buying Process

At Roger Parry and Partners we offer buyers a professional, informative, helpful and reliable service.

Buying a house can be an extremely stressful and time consuming process. We endeavor to ensure that viewers have the full details of the property they are viewing, together with clear directions to find it. We encourage buyers to discuss the suitability of the property with one of our valuers who has viewed the property to ensure that any specific needs are addressed before viewing, particularly when travelling long distances.

In order to facilitate your offer, we advise buyers to have full details available of the purchasers i.e., address, contact telephone numbers, e-mail addresses and full details of any finances required. Written confirmation of any mortgage offer or cash funds required for the purchaser, together with details of their chosen solicitor and any chain details relating to their own sale if relevant are also very helpful. If you can supply all this information to an agent when making your offer, the agent will be in a much better position to put a strong case forward for your offer to be considered. 

We would advise prospective purchasers to check their financial situation by having an up to date valuation of their own property (if relevant) and if they require finance, to speak to a qualified financial advisor or contact their mortgage company, in order that they have full information on their overall budget prior to starting to view properties.
