When you make an offer on a property we are obliged to put the offer forward.
The property has an asking price. Your offer should be as realistic as possible and based upon the property, its condition and location as well as your own circumstances. You should not discount work that you may want to do to the property, as this is something you want to do and it is not something that will overly interest the Vendor, particularly if the property is popular.
Before you make an offer on a property you should have in place
- A mortgage offer or confirmation that you are suitable for a mortgage.
- If you have a property to sell then you should be under offer with that property or very close to receiving an offer.
- A Vendor is very unlikely to accept an offer and then wait for you to sell your home.
- A Vendor is very unlikely to accept an offer where you do not have a mortgage offer in place.
