Buyers - The Buying Process

Buying a Property

Keep in touch

Stay in regular contact with us, so that you are at the forefront of our minds when the perfect property arrives on the market.

You can of course register with several estate agents but we will proactively keep highly engaged with you until we find your dream home. Be sure to check out our social media pages @rpsestates and also our Google reviews.  We have long standing members of staff who will look after your needs from the day you enquire and through to the day we find your ideal home.


If you’re a first-time buyer with a ‘mortgage in principle’, make sure you mention this to us so we can relay this to the seller as it puts you in a strong position to move things forward quickly.

When a property catches your eye, don’t be afraid to ask lots of questions.  Bear in mind asking the right questions now might save you quite a lot of money in the future.


Making an offer

You or the seller can pull out at any time before the exchange of contracts takes place.

Your offer should be:

  • Subject to contract (STC) – the final sale takes place only when solicitors have exchanged legally binding documents
  • Subject to survey – this allows for the cost of any faults or issues to be taken into account once your surveyor has checked the property out

Once your offer has been accepted, the property will be taken off the market and no longer advertised for viewings.

You should receive a letter from us confirming your offer. If you don’t receive this for any reason then make sure to ask for one or at least query it.
