New Foundations are by far the best estate agents we have ever dealt with, so if you ever need any recommendations or feedback please do not hesitate to get in touch.

Many thanks for all your help with Mums move, you certainly went above and beyond what you needed to do.

Daryl and Nick, thank you both for all your hard work and professionalism in acting for "Mum", you were asked to go the extra mile and repeatedly did so! Without a doubt the best estate agents ever.

Our sale has been handled with extreme courtesy, professionalism and good humour from start to finish. We would not have one single word of criticism and we are both certain that we have never, ever had better service anywhere.

I have been extremely satisfied with your company throughout, I would have no hesitation recommending New Foundations to other people.

Thankyou for your patience, for your time, for your kindness and for your honest opinions.

The service which I received from New Foundations was excellent. I was kept fully informed at all times and would recommend you to any prospective buyers or sellers.

I will have no hesitation recommending you guys to my friends and family.

You have been fab, informative and "on the ball" throughout. Thankyou

You sold our lovely home in about 2 weeks and worked your socks off to get the exchange date organised. Worth every penny.

I was very impressed with the service you gave me recently regarding the sale of my property. I found you as Estate Agents, very professional and helpful.

From understanding my specific requirements, obtaining in depth information, together with helpful suggestions, encouragement and eventually finding me the right property was all done in a most courteous and professional manner.

Your approach has been most professional in every way, at no time did I feel under pressure.

You wont remember us, because it was nearly nine years ago, however we remember the superb level of service you gave us! If we are ever looking to move in the future we shall of course be making our way to New Foundations.

Buyers Guide

Registering
When you start your hunt to buy a property in Bexhill, make sure you register with New Foundations – either through our website, or by phoning or visiting our branch in Devonshire Road. As new properties meeting your criteria come on the market, we’ll alert you by post, email and/or telephone. If you are interested in viewing a property, contact us quickly as our properties don’t hang around for long!

Organising finances
Ideally before you start your property hunt, it’s worth making sure you have your finances in place. If you have money in savings or shares, make sure you can access them easily and that there aren’t any fixed timelines to withdrawal. If you need a mortgage, we can recommend a mortgage advisor who will work out with you what figure is likely to be available to you. Don’t forget to budget for any renovations and removals, plus stamp duty and other buying costs.

Viewing
We will always try to be as flexible as possible to fit in with you. We pride ourselves on our attention to detail to answer any queries you’ve got, to help you make the right decision.

Making an offer
Once we’ve found a property for you that you like, discuss with us the offer you would like to make. We will ask you to confirm how you intend to fund the purchase of your property. If you already have a mortgage arranged, we will ask you to provide an agreement in principle (AIP) document and we will require the details of your financial advisor so that we can clarify the time frame that will be involved for processing your application. If you are buying without a mortgage (a ‘cash buyer’) you will also need to provide evidence of finance.

Survey
If you are buying with a mortgage, a valuation of the property will be booked by a surveyor on behalf of the mortgage lender. This is to protect their interests by valuing the property and highlighting any major defects that would negatively affect the security of their loan. You can often pay a little extra to have a full survey done at the same time. Our office can also recommend local surveyors should they be required.

Mortgage offer
Once your mortgage lender has received the survey report and are satisfied the loan amount is realistic given the valuation, they will issue a mortgage offer to your solicitor.

Solicitors
It is a good idea to choose a solicitor before you have found your property, so that once you have a sale agreed things can swing into action straight away. If you need a recommendation of a solicitor we can help. Once an offer has been agreed between you and the seller, we will contact each party’s solicitors to confirm the details of the sale. Offers are not legally binding until contracts have been exchanged. From now until exchange, you will need to be in close communication with your solicitor and our office will also be in regular contact with you and your solicitor, as well as the the sellers and their solicitor, and the solicitor and Estate Agent of any other people in your chain to make sure that your purchase goes through smoothly and on time.

Exchange of contracts
Exchanging contracts is the moment when the sale becomes legally binding on both sides. You can only exchange once you have paid a cleared deposit (usually 10% of the purchase price) to your solicitor’s account. Your solicitor will tell you and us when contracts have been exchanged. The completion date is then set by mutual agreement and is also contractually binding.

Completion
Completion is when your property purchase is finalised – the moment you’ve waited for! Your solicitor and mortgage lender will transfer the outstanding balance to the seller’s solicitor. Your solicitor will contact you and us when the money has cleared into their account and we will then release keys to you, and it will be time to move in!

To take the first steps in your property search please either complete the details in the registration form or contact our office.
