Once you have made an offer on your chosen property, you may think that that’s the end of any negotiation that might be available to you. Finding ways to reduce the cost of your dream property needn’t end there though.
At Saracens Solicitors, we can help you find hidden opportunities to negotiate further with your seller and get yourself a better deal. Another great advantage of working with a mortgage solicitor in London is that you won’t be lost under the mountains of paperwork required when buying a property, reducing the stress put on your shoulders.
Our aim is to make everything run smoothly and get the best deal for you with the help of our mortgage solicitor in London.
Knowledge is power when negotiating
When you have made your offer on your chosen property, your mortgage lender will conduct a survey to check if the property is worth the money you are paying for it.
It’s a good idea for you to also get a building survey. Some properties will appear perfect at first glance, but things may be worse than they appear. Having the property surveyed by a professional will give you a good insight into the condition of the property.
If there are any signs that could reduce the property’s value, you have grounds to negotiate further with the seller.
Knowing the condition of the property will help you to avoid any costs further down the line and may give you some leverage for further negotiation on the property’s price.
There are lots of different services available for surveying both flats and houses so you can have your peace of mind.
Utilising your mortgage solicitor in London
Another service that we provide at Saracens Solicitors is checking with local authorities if there are any legal restrictions on your property. We can prepare a report on past planning permissions and other information on the property before you commit to buy.
We can also look into the surrounding area to make sure there are no unexpected surprises after you have committed to buy your chosen property.
We are here to help everything run smoothly and so that you can have complete peace of mind when buying and negotiating the price for your new home.
