Valuation and process

Once you’ve sent us both forms, we'll review your application and let you know if you can buy your home in 28 days.

We'll then arrange for an independent valuation of your home. A surveyor will make an appointment with you to inspect your home.

We’ll then send you a formal offer letter. This will include:

  • The current market value of your home
  • The discount you’ll receive
  • The final amount you’ll pay for your home
  • The number of days you have, to accept or reject the offer
  • If you accept the offer, you’ll need to arrange your mortgage and appoint a solicitor.

We’ll then work with you through the sale process.

We’ve also prepared some answers to  Frequently asked questions about buying your home [PDF] 187KB
