The Buying Process

Contact our property experts to discuss your unique circumstances, and we’ll provide detailed guidance on the steps involved and what to expect when becoming a property owner. If needed we can also connect you with local surveyors, conveyancers, and financial advisors.

Whether you have bought property before or are a first-time buyer, here’s a quick summary of what happens when you buy a house:

before you start


Before you look seriously, make sure you know what you want, have the finance to pay for it, and have arrangements in place to sell any existing property. You’ll also need to choose a firm to do the legal work (conveyancing) but we can recommend if you like.

ask our property adviser


Take a look at what our property adviser recommends and find your dream property.

offer and negotiate


After talking to the adviser, put in an offer and negotiate to get it accepted. The property is now ‘Sold subject to contract’.

the legal stuff


Give the adviser all your details, including the conveyancer, and then ring the conveyancer to tell them what is happening. It’s now up to them to sort out the legalities and the finance. You may need to get a survey done.

the contract


The conveyancer will prepare the contract, as will the seller. This will take a while and all we can do is chase them for you. They will give you advance notice of the expected dates for exchange and completion.



Once all the queries are resolved, the contract for you to buy & the seller to sell will be ‘exchanged’. At this point you’re committed to the purchase.

move in


A few more days will pass, and then the purchase will be ‘completed’. You will get the keys and can move in!

My relationship with Alexander Philips extended over a decade as my letting agent for a flat on Worthing Seafront. I found the team (especially Paige) excellent, always finding a tenant and managing them well. When the time came to sell the flat I dealt with their sales arm (Peter Hayler) who not only found a buyer but was super helpful in every stage of the process. Would thoroughly recommend.

Paige was very supportive throughout the process of us getting to rent our lovely flat haven just moved into West Sussex. She has also been just a call or Mail away in helping us settle in, addressing any concerns we have very swiftly.

Peter has provided outstanding service with our house sale. He went above and beyond for us and we believe that he is a true credit to the profession. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Alexander Philips to anybody that's thinking of buying or selling. Thanks to Paige as well, who is equally outstanding.

Paige at Alexander Philips has been outstanding throughout the process of applying for tenancy of a flat in Worthing. Super efficient, very professional and responded to all comms so quickly. Managed to get my tenancy through in 1 week - all thanks to Paige. I would totally recommend Alexander Philips, especially Paige!

Paige was a pleasure to deal with in helping us secure our new home. She was proactive and professional at all times. Nothing was too much trouble and she always responded to our emails, phonecalls and questions without delay. We'd have no hesitation in recommending her and ultimately are now extremely happy in our beautiful new home.

Alexander Philips and Paige in particular have been the best and most helpful and responsive agency I've ever dealt with.I rented through them at the same property for just over year and there have been a few problems throughout but both the landlord and Alexander Phillips were always been extremely quick to respond and resolve the matters, and keep me informed.I would recommend them without the slightest bit of hesitation, they've always been there for me, from viewing all the way through to receiving my deposit back! Definitely a 5* company!!!
