Buying resources

Here is the process undertaken when buying a property with WWPC

1. Mortgage

Ensure your finances are in check, and that you are eligable for your desired mortgage. For more information about mortgages, navigate to our mortgage advice page.

2. Find your desired property for sale

WWPC offer a range of property for sale in Bournemouth, Poole and London. Navigate to our search page to view our properties for sale.

3. Arrange a viewing with WWPC

We are available to conduct viewings 7 days a week, at the discretion of the homeowner. Links to arrange a viewing are available on the property's page. Alternatively, navigate to our arrange a viewing page to arrange a viewing.

4. Solicitors

A solicitor is required when purchasing a property. You can use your own or a WWPC recommended solicitor. We are happy for you to use either.

5. Exchange of information

A memorandum of sale is sent from the agent confirming the agreed purchasing price and the chosen solicitor's details.

6. Valuation

A valuation is conducted of the home and mortgage to see if you are paying an appropriate amount for your property. This is conducted alongside the home buyer report, used to produce an in depth report into the condition of the property.

7. Searches

Searches are made by your solicitor, for the vendor's solicitor. Draft documentation is sent, along with contracts and deeds to the purchasing solicitor.

8. Funds cleared

Once all parties are satisfied, the contract is signed and sent back. The purchaser's solicitor clears funds ready to exchange.

9. The exchange

The exchange begins when the solicitor signs the contract. At this point local authority searches commence, a mortgage offer is made and money is deposited. A completion date is then set and contracts are exchanged.

10. Completion

Deposited funds are transferred, the property is now yours
