Information for buyers
Buying property can be a complicated process.
1. Arranging your mortgage
Before you begin your property search, it is advisable to arrange your finances and, if required, have a mortgage agreed in principle. This will confirm how much money you will have to fund the purchase, which will ultimately influence your property search.
