Buying Guides

Step 1: Financing
Unless you are a cash buyer, the first thing you need to do is work out how much you can borrow, how much deposit you will require and agree on the necessary mortgage in principle.
Step 2: Dream Home
Time to find your Dream Home. You can browse our ‘Current Developments’ or ‘Past Developments’ or simply contact us directly to understand more about the properties we currently have available and to organise a site visit.
Step 3: Reserve
To secure your dream home, you’ll need to pay a reservation fee of £5,000 and be in a position where you can proceed to buy, e.g. sale agreed on an existing property, living in rented accommodation or cash buyer etc. From this point, no one else will be able to reserve your new home for 28 days.
Step 4: Find a solicitor
You will need to engage with a Solicitor that specialises in conveyancing (preparing property transfer documents), so someone can take care of all the legal aspects of the home-buying process.
Step 5: Mortgage
Now it’s time to arrange your Mortgage. Once you’ve spoken to a mortgage advisor or Independent Financial Advisor (we can recommend local Advisors), you can select the option that’s best for you. As part of this process, your mortgage lender will arrange a valuation of your current property, to confirm that the house is worth what you’re paying for it. This will involve a small fee.
Step 6: Exchange
Usually, within 4-6 weeks of you making your reservation, all the legal surveys & enquiries would have been processed by your Solicitor, and you will be in a position to exchange contracts with us. At this point, you will need to pay a deposit of 10% of the cost of your new home – legally confirming you will purchase the property.
Step 7: Legal Completion
On completion, the purchase monies are transferred from your Solicitor to Tregenna Properties, and you officially become the legal owner of your new home. You will be presented with a ‘Welcome Pack’ by our team, and will be walked around your property so any initial questions you may have can be addressed.
