Buying Property Advice

When it comes to buying a property everyone's an expert! The problem is with buying property advice, it is very individual to your circumstances. Just because your mum, brother or cousin didn't get a full structural survey on their property, doesn't mean you shouldn't. Just because your best mate or colleague at work went for a fixed rate mortgage doesn't mean this is the right buying property advice for you. The trick to buying property advice is to make sure that you get the bespoke advice you need from an independent expert (or experts).

At Designs on Property our aim is to find you the best buying property advice we can. In the main because we are experienced in buying property, both personally and professionally, we can pretty much answer most of the questions ourselves. However, if you need some buying property advice and we don't know how to help you, we can find the right mortgage person, surveying practice, legal company, insurance expert or estate agent to make sure you get the buying property advice that is right for you and your circumstances.

What FREE buying property advice can we give you?

There are lots of ways we can help give you property advice when you are buying a home:-

  • Ask your property advice question and we'll answer for FREE!
    If you have a buying a home question and want an independent answer, then just contact us and we'll send you the answer you need. Why do we do this? We make most of our money via consulting work to help the industry to communicate better with you, the consumer. The more we understand what kind of questions and problems buyers have, the more up to date research we have. Please be aware though everything you send to us is confidential, we never pass on your information without your permission.

Both buying processes have 75 things you will need to do to make sure you buy the property that is right for you and your circumstances.

Don't forget, we don't sell your data, we don't pass on your data to anyone without your permission and if we think your legal, surveying, mortgage or insurance broker is giving you the right buying advice, we'll say so. If not, we'll suggest you talk to the experts that we know, without any obligation to taking on their services.
