What Else Do We Offer?

Here at Direct Moves, we cater to all our customers’ requirements, whatever they might be. To that end, we offer a range of services, including:

Assistance with Buying Property 

Every property has little details that set it apart from other properties, even on the same street. Some properties have plenty of bedrooms while others don’t. Some properties have a large spacious garden and off-road parking, while others don’t. Some properties need work doing while others don’t. The list goes on.

It’s important to be mindful of what you want and what each property delivers. That way, you aren’t left disappointed or dealing with unforeseen costs. You may even be able to negotiate a lower price. We help you navigate such considerations while providing other assistance, chiefly in the form of financial advice.

Proper financial planning is important, after all, as there are so many costs involved with buying and selling property. These costs include:

  • Solicitor’s Fees
  • Land Registry Fees
  • Moving Costs
  • Mortgage Application Costs
  • Survey Costs
  • Buildings and Contents Insurance

Our team is very knowledgeable about such matters and can help you project the costs and budget accordingly.

We’ll talk you through the various fees so that you understand how much it’ll cost and how much money you need to set aside. Bear in mind that you may need to set aside money if the property requires any work carried out. While you can negotiate a lower asking price, this might not necessarily cover the full amount you’ll need to spend, so budget sensibly.

One other important factor to consider is that you’ll need legal assistance when buying and selling property. There are so many legal pitfalls that can easily snare you, delaying the process and costing you a fortune. A conveyancer is a legal professional that specialises in property sales. They’ll assist you every step of the way so far as the legal aspects are concerned.

They’ll perform a range of duties on your behalf, from paying stamp duty to liaising with all concerned parties, ensuring the money will be available for the mortgage, checking land registries, and more.

We recommend you browse our page entitled ‘What Does Your Solicitor or Conveyancer Do?’ for more details.

Mortgage Advice

Unless you’re sitting on a small fortune, you likely won’t have the funds to buy a property outright. After all, you’re talking hundreds of thousands of pounds plus additional expenses. A bank or building society can offer you a loan called a mortgage. This loan covers the cost of the property minus the deposit and is repayable through monthly instalments.

Once the mortgage is paid off, you own the property outright. Of course, there are hundreds of mortgage properties on the market, all with different rates and features. At Direct Moves, we help you sort the wheat from the chaff, drilling down into the various products out there to find the ones that are worth your time.

We excel at offering FREE, professional mortgage advice and have helped steer countless buyers and sellers in Portland in the right direction over the years. Once you’ve found the right mortgage product, we’ll help you with the application process, and your conveyancer will liaise with the lender to ensure the funds are available on completion day.

These are just a few of the ways that we at Direct Moves can assist you with our in-depth mortgage advice service:

  • We Cover All Options, Including Help-to-Buy, Buy-to-Let, and Affordable Housing Schemes
  • Our Team will Consult with You Face-to-Face or Over the Phone at a Time That Suits You
