Buying your new home
Here at Walton & Allen we understand that buying a property is about more than just a business transaction; it’s about making your dreams come true. And we want that process to be smooth, enjoyable and exciting – the way it’s meant to be.
Buying a property is a huge investment, one that is often mired with the complex financial and legal processes involved. With our agents you’ll only ever get straightforward, friendly advice.

The buying process
When buying a home the first thing you need to do is find out how much you can afford. If looking to buy with a mortgage, don’t just go directly to a bank. Speak directly to a mortgage broker who can compare the whole of the market to find a great deal for you. You can talk to our mortgage broker for free today by calling 0115 924 3304.
Once you know how much you can afford, browse through properties on Rightmove, Zoopla and Prime Location to find those you like. Book in to view these properties and then make an offer once you find the perfect home!
Be prepared to negotiate with your offer. Others may also be looking to buy the same property.
Once an offer has been accepted, you will need to instruct a conveyancing solicitor. We can send you comparison quotes for all our recommended solicitors. We recommend certain solicitors because we know they are efficient and get the job done quickly. The average conveyancing process is 12-16 weeks.
Don’t always choose the cheapest solicitors. A house is probably the most expensive thing you will ever buy and the process needs to be done right.
During the conveyancing process you will exchange contracts and then collect your keys on completion. Congratulations, you can now move in to your new home!
Here at Walton&Allen estate agents we don’t just find you a property and leave you to it. We help you every step of the way.
The process of buying a home is an exciting experience, but it can also be one of the most stressful. And it often isn’t helped by all the estate agents’ jargon and financial legalese. But with Walton&Allen you get a different kind of service, because we cut through the jargon and talk to you in plain English.
If you have any question regarding the purchase of your home feel free to give a member of our estate agency team a call and they’ll be all too happy to help. Our aim is to make the process of buying a house in Nottingham as stress free and enjoyable as possible.
Help to buy
The government backed help to buy scheme has helped thousands of people climb the property ladder and with Walton&Allen it could help you too.
What is help to buy?
Help to buy initially began in 2013 as a means to help first time buyers get onto the property ladder. Providing a buyer could raise a 5% deposit then the government would fund the remainder of the deposit as an equity loan. Although the scheme was initially for first time buyers buying new build properties only but was quickly expanded to include people moving up the property ladder. Now the scheme has also been expanded to include existing properties as well as new builds.
If you have any further questions about how you could move into a new home with as little as 5% deposit, talk to a member of the Walton&Allen’s estate agency team today.
