Buying a home?

Aspire recognises the fact the purchase of your home is the most important and expensive transaction you are likely to undertake. Our database features all of our properties and we are sure that with our local knowledge and expertise, we will be able to find you a property to suit your needs, be it a straightforward move or a ‘Buy to Let’ investment.

Register with us

Once registered, you are then in a position to receive details from us directly in person, via mail or email or download and print these out from our website.

Viewing

Our sales teams are available to arrange those all important viewings of your selected properties. We are open at times convenient to you, until 7pm during the week and open on Saturday and Sunday by appointment.

Mortgage

In order to speed up your house buying process, it is advisable wherever possible; to get a mortgage agreed in principle before any final decision on your new property is made. This has the advantage of providing you with a clear indication of what is affordable and the fact that you have a mortgage agreed in principle is also attractive to sellers.

We work with a number of local and nationwide companies and can arrange for someone to make contact with you to discuss.

Making Your Offer

Once you have located your ideal property, your offer will be submitted by us to the vendor for their consideration. This is done both verbally and in writing.

NB: Please note that all offers are “subject to contract” and therefore neither party is legally bound until the contract is actually signed.

Accepted Offer/Instructing Solicitors

As soon as your offer has been accepted by the vendor, you should instruct a solicitor to act on your behalf. Your solicitor will handle all legal requirements of your purchase (property conveyancing).

At this point, you also need to formally proceed with your mortgage application and instruct your mortgage consultant/broker accordingly.

Survey

The next step is to obtain the Mortgage Valuation, as required by law. This will be conducted by a Chartered Surveyor acting for your Lender. The report is to provide a Valuation i.e. determine whether the amount to be loaned is secure and also deals with the basic condition of the property. Since you as the buyer are also provided with a copy, it allows both parties to evaluate the findings prior to entering into a commitment to purchase.

Additional Homebuyer Survey/Valuation

The survey’s purpose is to highlight any defects and problems which are likely to have an overall impact on the value of the property.

The objective of the Homebuyer Survey is to provide a more in depth report which will assist the buyer in making an informed decision whether to proceed with the purchase and also whether the agreed price reflects the actual value. Moreover, the professional opinion of the surveyor as contained in his report will also set out particular features of the property which may possibly have an affect on the present value and potential future marketability.

Searches

These are conducted by the buyer’s solicitor who submits a local authority search to the local borough council. Its purpose is to ascertain if there is any planning consented previously granted on the property or if there are any other local issues which may have an impact on the purchase.

Draft Contracts

The draft contract is drawn up by the seller’s solicitor and is forwarded to the buyer’s solicitor for consideration. Any additional queries or questions will be asked and answered and the contract amended accordingly, subject to final approval.

Mortgage Offer

The Lender is now in possession of the Mortgage Valuation survey and, subject to the findings of this report; receipt/approval of the mortgage application and provided all references and checks have been conducted satisfactorily, the Lender will send a formal mortgage offer to the buyer and their solicitor. The document is then signed and returned and funds requested by the buyer’s solicitor.

Exchange of Contracts

Once the contract has been signed by both parties, a deposit (normally a small percentage of the purchase price) is paid by either bank transfer or banker’s draft. At this stage, the parties agree on a date for completion.

Completion

Completion usually follows a few days or weeks after exchange of contracts. The balance of the purchase price is transferred by the buyer’s solicitor to the seller’s solicitor and the keys released – Congratulations! You are now the owner of your new home!

I recently sold my house using Aspire, and the house I purchased was also conveniently through Aspire! The brochure and photos produced for the marketing of my property was of high quality. I found all of the Aspire team to be extremely professional, efficient and kept me informed throughout the selling and purchasing. My queries were dealt with quickly and the Aspire team ensured that selling and buying were completed in good time. Thank you.

Philip McNaughton

Selling (or buying) a house can be a unpredictable period of uncertainty and worry. When I decided to sell my Oundle property in June, I started by comparing the various estate agents’ websites. I was initially attracted by Aspire’s website’s friendliness and dynamism. After appointing Aspire, I immediately experienced what it felt like being looked after by a caring and professional company. Whilst other estate agents are tempted to lower house prices to sell them quickly, Aspire made it possible for me to sell my property at the best asking price. At the same time, I felt they were being honest and fair to the buyers themselves because they knew the market (and down to my road) so well. The photos of my property were so amazing that I was even half-tempted to buy my own house!

In every step of the way, Aspire gave me encouraging and timely updates. The company exhibited an ‘agile’ and collaborative approach because anyone in the office I spoke to seemed to know about my property. Their final gesture of care and help was when I asked them to take the final meter readings on my behalf at Completion Day, and they did so promptly and cheerfully. Due to family bereavement and other circumstances, I had to sell two other properties in the past 7 years, Aspire is the first estate agent that I felt was utterly open, honest and did not ‘conspire’ with buyers to make a quick sale. I thoroughly and warmly recommend them – without reservation – whether you are selling or buying a house. Open honesty is a rare virtue that needs to be experienced to be treasured! Special thanks to Sarah, Emily and Angela!

They went beyond what I’m sure their job description states. They were patient, understanding and when they said they would get back to you, they did and. I was very impressed indeed.

Aspire made moving house easy. From the first enquiry to completion, the service was friendly, personal and authoritative. Not only were they able to find the perfect house, they kept us informed and helped us every step of the way to ensure that we reached a positive outcome. Both selling and buying, it always felt like they were on our side. Not only were the team at Aspire brilliant, but so too were the solicitors and mortgage brokers they recommended. Should we ever look to move again, Aspire will be our first call.

Angela is great. Professional and authentic.

Rachel Presland

Aspire lettings do an outstanding job for their tenants, from first viewing to post moving in. All the staff have been professional, empathetic, responsive and knowledgeable. They take the time to get to know you, I get welcomed by name when I go to their offices and seem to work in my best interests at all times. They mediate well too, liaison between landlord and tenant can always be a little tricky, subjective and they do this very well always ensuring each parties responsibilities are upheld and met. I have no hesitation in recommending Aspire as a lettings agent.

Warren Gunn

We had an extremely professional prompt and attentive experience dealing with Angela and the team at Aspire, Oundle. Nothing was too much trouble and Angela passed on lots of local knowledge to help us settle into our cottage. We would highly recommend Aspire to anyone looking buy or rent in the Oundle area.

Kimberley MacGregor

This is what Estate Agents should be like!
We brought our new home through Aspire and they were great.
Friendly, Professional and responsive to all our questions. They kept us up to date on the progress of the purchase and did so much more than the estate agents selling our property. I would fully recommend Aspire to sell and/or purchase our next property. Thank you to all the Team at Aspire.

We would just like to say a very big thank you to Emily and all the staff who helped us realise our dream. They were all amazing in helping us navigate through the minefield of moving and were very professional in making sure we were kept up to date with any enquiries we had. Many thanks Aspire.

Lisa Baylis

We recently sold our house through Aspire. Throughout they did a great job. Emily was initially very helpful in looking at the house and advising us on small improvements prior to marketing. She also spent the most time with us of all the agents we contacted and was contactable throughout. We were very confident of leaving Helen to do the viewings. Most of all, we’d like to place on record our appreciation for Angela, our sales negotiator, who was contactable, communicative and just so helpful throughout. Thank you to all at Aspire, we feel we made the right choice.

David Lea

Emily, Sarah, and the other agents are wonderful to work with Aspire Lettings. We have been letting flats and a home with them for the last two years and their customer service is excellent. They are quick to address any issues while letting, and they provide continual reassurance in the letting process. We have loved the many locations we have let from them. They are all very personable as well, making my family and I feel very welcome as we are living abroad in England from America. I would highly recommend this agency to anyone seeking dedicated customer service, beautiful properties, and a high standard of quality and care.
