The Buying Process
We make it easy
All property sales follow a structured
process and Coppersun Properties will help you every step of the way.
You can register with Coppersun Properties by using the form on this
website, e-mailing or telephoning. The more information you can provide
about the type of property that you are seeking will enable us to respond
more quickly to your requirements.
We will start the process of searching for properties that meet your
criteria. You will be sent details of potential properties and can also
search for yourself using our website. Simply contact us and we will
arrange appointments for you to view all properties that you are interested
in. Coppersun Properties will undertake making an offer for a property
on your behalf. We will contact the seller and put forward your offer.
All offers are subject to contract which means that there is no legal
binding to buy or sell until the contract has been signed by all parties.
The Conveyance stage of the sale requires a solicitor. The solicitor
will handle all legal paperwork required as part of the sale process
and subsequent transfer of ownership. We will be happy to recommend
solicitors to handle this aspect of the process. Once an offer has been
accepted you will need to advise your solicitor who will deal directly
with the solicitor of the seller. Agree on dates for the exchange of
legal contracts and the actual completion of the sale as early as possible
in the process. If you are arranging a mortgage then contact your lender
at this stage.
Survey and Searches are carried out at this stage. The seller's solicitor
will make a Land Registry search. Your solicitor will submit a local
authority search that will show any planning consents or local issues
that may have relevance to the property. The mortgage lender will complete
a survey of the property to check for structural problems and will subsequently
make a valuation. A Draft Contract will be drawn up by the seller's
solicitor and forwarded to your solicitor. Your solicitor approves the
draft contract at this stage, provided that any queries or questions
raised have been answered satisfactorily.
The lender will send a Mortgage offer to your solicitor, which you will
be asked to sign. Once this has been done the money to buy the property
is in place. An Exchange of Contracts now takes place, which both buyer
and seller sign. A deposit is paid either by bank transfer or banker's
draft. A completion date is finalised and the outstanding balance is
paid on that day, at which point you become the proud owner of the property.
