A Guide to Mortgages for those Moving Home

People often get confused about what they should do first when it comes to selling and buying on. This page should clear up some of the questions you may have. In theory, there is no “right or wrong” way to do things but we’ve found, in our years of experience, that the steps we’ve put together here are usually the most fool proof.

There are lots of other things you will need to consider as well but they will usually be unique to you and your circumstances. We are here to help and only a phone call away if you get stuck or want a question answered. We don’t only help with your mortgages but we will help with everything else too.

The best way to start is by calling us on 0151 459 9826 or by leaving your details in the callback form so an expert can call you and talk you through it for FREE.

Let’s start right now with 8 simple steps.

Step 1 - Get a Valuation

You’ll need to understand how much your house is worth before you do anything. Without this it’s hard to work out what your options are…
Most local estate agents will offer a free no obligation valuation
Book a local estate agent to come out and give you an up to date valuation along with their selling fees.

Step 2 - Investigate your options

Speak with a Mortgage Expert to find out:
What are the costs of moving or buying?
How much you can borrow?
How much you can buy for?
How much your monthly repayments will be?
Get an Agreement In Principle from your AL Mortgage Solutions expert

Step 3 – Instruct an Estate Agent

You had it valued, now it’s time to put the property on the market. The Estate Agents will:
Take photos of your property
Run through your contract
Get your property online
Find you a buyer.

Step 4 - Find Your Dream Home

This is the fun part. Get yourself out there and view as many properties as you can…
Arrange viewings with Estate Agents
Negotiate on the property (don’t forget to start low. You can always go up but you can’t come down)
Agree a deal with the seller

Step 5 - Time to Apply

We will give you advice and submit all the applications on your behalf.
Apply for your mortgage and protection
Instruct your solicitors – we can help put you in touch with a local solicitor we work closely with to ensure everything runs smoothly
Your Mortgage expert will send off all your documents to the lender for them to review


Step 6 – Mortgage Offer

The importance of dotting the i’s and crossing the t’s. Make sure there isn’t a stone left unturned. Once your survey has come back and documents accepted form the lender, a full mortgage offer will be produced
We will review your mortgage and protection arrangements with you to make sure you’re happy with everything.

Step 7 - Exchange Contracts

This is a vital part of the process and it’s all legally binding. We will help you get to this period as quickly as possible.
Before you exchange you’ll need to sign a mortgage deed, a contract and a transfer of equity form
This is when your deposit is lodged with the solicitors and it becomes legally binding… Time to relax!

Step 8 - Completion

This is the most existing part of the process… Time to take the first walk in your lovely new home!
This will usually happen a week or so after exchange however, it might be longer depending on others in the chain or if it’s a new build
Time to pick up the keys, put the kettle on and have a cuppa in your new home!
