Making an inventory
At our first meeting we shall be making an inventory of your requirements.
What kind of property are you looking for and where? Do you prefer a newly-built house or an existing one? What is your budget?
Searching and viewing
Once we have clarified what you are looking for, I shall start looking with you, or on your behalf, for a suitable property. I shall arrange viewings, I shall be accompanying you and inspecting the property. Next I shall determine the value and structural condition of the house. If necessary, I shall arrange for a structural inspection and review the structural report. Furthermore, I shall be checking all relevant information, such as the NVM's questionnaire, proof of ownership, Land Registry, documents from the Owners' Association, and civil law aspects.
Negotiation is an art form, and this is where my strengths lie. Together with you I shall determine the negotiation strategy. In addition to price fixing, I deal with contingency clauses, special clauses, penalty clauses, and I can help you choose a solicitor.
It is essential to know what you are putting your signature to! I shall check the purchase agreement meticulously, whereupon I shall go over it with you. I shall also check the title deed and final statement drawn up by the solicitor meticulously, and go over these too with you, to ensure that all is perfectly understood.
We are nearly there... the final inspection of the property is next. Are you actually getting that which has been agreed upon? Has the selling party kept their side of the bargain? I shall be keeping a close eye on this. When the solicitor approves the title deed, I shall be present. And then the happy moment: the handing over of the keys. Congratulations on your new house!
Property buying agency Van weele can look out for existing houses, but newly built ones are, of course, a possibility, too. Els can advise you across the price ranges. A detached house, a semi-detached house, a terraced house. Or preferably a flat. A house in a busy neighbourhood, or rather in a quiet one. Near main roads or public transport. Anything is possible, for every budget.
