Are you a First Time Buyer?

  • Posted

At Chattertons we are aware that buying your first home is a very significant turning point in your life.

You will probably have dreamt of owning your own home for years, have possibly been scrimping and saving for years to raise the all important deposit and you have finally reached the point where you are ready to face the future and commit yourself.

Most of us who work at Chattertons have already taken that first step of moving into the housing market and remember taking that tentative first step on to the first rung of the property ladder. It is with this personal experience and our extensive legal expertise that we are here to guide you through the process.

We know that the challenges facing first time buyers today range from mortgage availability to being inundated with legal jargon and Estate Agent banter all set against a backdrop that feels at times as if things are spiralling out of your control.

This is where we come in. We are committed to all our clients but understand that our First Time Buyer clients need a huge amount of support as not only are you entering the housing market for the first time, this will probably also be the first time that you have had to make contact with a Solicitor, a Mortgage Adviser and a Surveyor.

We are able to provide you with a complete in house service as we provide the full range of conveyancing services and also have an independent mortgage adviser who can talk you through the mortgages that are on offer, arrange your buildings and contents insurance and your life insurance. Once you have completed your purchase we can refer you to our Private Client Department who will guide you through the next important stage which is to make a Will.

To ensure that our First Time Buyer clients receive the best possible service, each of our offices has a dedicated First Time Buyer Adviser who will liaise with you, the Estate Agent and your mortgage adviser from the beginning of the transaction to the day that you collect your keys. You will have a named adviser who will be available to you during working hours via email, phone or can see you in person at the office of your choice.

To find out more about our service we offer please buying and selling your property or call one of our offices and ask to speak to a First Time Buyer Adviser.
