Your home is probably the most expensive thing you’ll ever own, but if you’re thinking of buying a house, where do you even start? There’s so much to think about, to research and organise.

There are house viewings, surveys, repairs, legal fees, mortgage arrangement fees and more! It’s easy to feel overwhelmed and be under prepared for the process of buying a house. There’s a reason they say that moving home is one of the most stressful times of your life!

We’ll take you through the process step by step and give you tips on how to plan and prepare so that you’re not blindsided by any costs or elements that could take you by surprise.
