Buying a property – get your ducks in a row!

Here at Tortoise we talk about getting your ducks in a row quite often. It sums up perfectly the steps needed to take you towards buying a property. Because we have so much experience and local market knowledge we can offer a complete end to end service on your property purchase. Our service goes a step beyond the norm.

You’ll talk to one Relationship Manager throughout to make the journey to owning your own home a pleasant one, but if you are struggling to know where to start and what questions to ask, consider the following:

  1. What can I borrow?

There are a dizzying array of mortgage products available. Whether you want a fixed or variable rate or a buy to let (or have absolutely no idea at this point!) you can be certain that you are getting the best deal for you by speaking to a qualified expert. A Specialist Mortgage Advisor can search through thousands of mortgage deals to find quotes that suit your particular circumstances. Here at Tortoise we have Chris Plummer who combines his role as a Relationship Manager with his work as a practicing mortgage broker. So, if you book a meeting with him, he can advise you on all the products available on the market today as well as help you find your perfect property.

  1. What are my one-off costs?

There are many expenses to consider when buying a property, other than the price of the property itself. You need to make sure that you budget for one off costs such as stamp duty, conveyancing, estate agency fees, surveys and removal costs. We can take you through everything in more detail so that there are no unpleasant surprises.
