Buyer testimonial

Having just purchased a home through Moores Estate Agents and can’t thank them enough. No matter who we dealt with they were always friendly and helpful. Especially Jenny who was patient and kept us informed, as it wasn’t the smoothest of a purchase due to the sale of our flat. But every step of the way the communication was so good so we never had to wonder. We could not have been in better hands.

Thank you all so much for helping to get us moved from Hertfordshire to Oakham.

The buying process

Accepting an offer | memorandum of sales instruction of solicitor

Once you have accepted an offer, Moores will prepare a memorandum of sale, writing to all parties confirming the agreed price and introducing 

solicitors. Your solicitor will send out a contract to the buyer’s solicitor who will conduct preliminary enquiries. At this stage, you can negotiate the dates for a survey on your property, exchanging the contracts and a proposed completion date.

Continuous contact with solicitors

To ensure the sale runs as smoothly as possible, we are regularly in contact with all parties and their respective solicitors. We will keep you informed each step of the way and can advise you and negotiate on your behalf throughout the process.

There are no legal obligations until the contracts are signed.

In the market we are in currently, it has never been more important to get personal, professional and independent advice to ensure you really are getting the best possible deal for you and your circumstances, so call us today to book an appointment or alternatively schedule a 20 minute initial consultation call here: www.calendly.com/lkfinancial

Paying for services

Exchange of contracts

The exchange of contracts occurs once preliminary enquiries have been conducted, evidence of title provided, lease issues highlighted(where applicable), local search queries completed and confirmation of fixtures and fittings included in the sale. Once the contract has been signed by both parties the deposit (usually 10% of the purchase price) will be paid by the buyer’s solicitor to your solicitor.

The completion date will then be set by mutual agreement.


Completion is usually one week after the exchange. The timing of this is negotiable and must be agreed by both parties at the point of exchange. On the date of completion, the keys are handed over once the monies have been received by the respective solicitor. The balance of monies (usually 90%) is transferred from the buyer’s solicitor to your solicitor’s

account. Your solicitor will notify you when the money has cleared in your account and will then inform us to release the keys.
