can borrow before you start looking at properties. A good mortgage adviser will help you find the most suitable mortgage for your individual financial circumstances. We can put you

​View several properties so you can compare and form your own judgement with regards to price and suitability.

Most Sellers try to ensure the accuracy of the details in their schedules and advertising, but you cannot always guarantee that they are correct. Always verify the details, particularly the asking price, room sizes, ownership and the tenure of the property before you make an offer.
