PURCHASE PROCESS

How Leef make the purchase easy for clients

Leef produce a detailed document about each suitable property which is then circulated to individual clients.

If a client is interested and wants to view the property we arrange a viewing date and accompany the client to the property, together with the Refurbishment Contractor. At this stage the initial draft specification of any refurbishment works required will be produced by the contractor for authorisation by the client. We can also arrange a Survey with a RICS qualified surveyor.

Many of our clients are not able to view the properties and rely on us to provide them with details of the property and the contractor to provide a Specification of Works for them to authorise.

  • When a sale is agreed Leef confirm the details in writing outlining the procedures involved in the sale, listing contact details of Solicitors and Finance Providers. At this stage we need our clients to act swiftly so we can secure the deal we have agreed on the property.
  • Leef instruct Solicitors, Finance Providers and Vendors, on behalf of the client, to commence proceedings with the purchase providing them with details of the property to be purchased and details of the client.
  • During the completion process Leef monitor the progress with the Solicitor, Finance Provider and Agent ensuring the client has the minimum disruption to their daily lives.
  • On the day the purchase completion takes place Leef arrange to collect the keys and meet the Refurbishment Contractor and the Letting and Management Agent at the property to agree timescales so the property is marketed for a tenant as soon as possible.
  • We also invite the client to come along on the day of completion to see their property and discuss in detail the final specification of any refurbishment works with the Contractor. If the client is not able to attend we will handle this and if we find any further works are required, which occasionally happens, the Contractor will quote for these works for authorisation by the client.
  • Leef also provide a Purchase Completion Letter to the client giving any information about the property we think the client may need and advise the local authority regarding change of ownership.
