Guides and checklists

If you’re looking for help climbing on and up the housing ladder, you’ve come to the right place.

Our checklists will guide you through:

Our property purchase checklists for buying a home are rich resources designed to guide you through the whole process, from saving up to moving in.

We offer guidance on a wide range of topics, including budgeting, finding a suitable mortgage lender, sourcing the correct documentation for the application, and removal tips for when you get the keys to your new home.

Saving for a house

Saving for a mortgage deposit is the first step towards getting a mortgage and moving home, but for many of us it’s no mean feat.

This checklist provides information on the many government schemes available to savers, including first-time buyers.

It will help you to work out how much you need to save each month and what you can do to reduce costs.

Help for first-time buyers

This checklist is for those taking their first step onto the property ladder.

As a first-time buyer, you’ll discover information on the different government schemes available today, including Help to Buy, Right to Buy, and Shared Ownership.

You’ll also find information on budgeting, how to find the right mortgage for your needs, and the other costs you’ll need to prepare for.

Moving house

You’ve exchanged contracts and got the keys - but don’t forget you still need to pack!

Jokes aside, our moving house checklist will ensure you have every important detail covered; from confirming the date of your move with everyone concerned, paying your solicitor fees, to getting quotes for removals.
