Once you have found a property which you like, you will need to decide how much you are prepared to pay for it and then make an offer to the seller (usually via the estate agent). Any offer you make is "subject to survey and contract", which means that neither you nor the seller has to go ahead with the deal. The sale of the property is not legally binding until the official exchange of contracts. Once your offer has been accepted by the seller, you will then need to formally arrange your mortgage to buy it. This can take up to three months.
