We will call you back with the result of your offer.
Step 4 -
Depending if your offer has been accepeted or declined we will guide you though the rest of the process of drawing up contracts and dealing with solicitors for you or we can place another offer on the property if your original offer was declined.
If your offer has been declined
In the event that your offer has been declined by the vendor, your account handler will start the negotiation process. This will hopefully end with both parties agreeing on a acceptable figure.
If your offer has been accepted
If your offer has been accepted we will now start the paperwork process.
The deposit is usually either 5% or 10% of property value, this is to be agreed with the vendor.

A few points to bear in mind
Verbal offers in England and Wales are not legally binding. Any offers must be in writing and signed before they are a legally binding.
Verbal offers in Scotland are legally binding.
If you decide to pull out of the property sale after you have signed and exchanged contracts you will be in a lengthy and expensive dispute, in which you may still have to purchase the property.
