Buying a House

Buying a house in the UK can be done but the process varies from the way its done in the States.

A good resource for information is Consumer Direct.

Here is an overview of how the process works:
  1. Find out what your buying power is by finding out how much you will be able to spend on a house. This can be done by going to a bank. They will discuss the mortage options available to you. This maybe 3 times your income.
  2. .Find a house. An estate agent can help you this. You might have to visit a few estate agents as they only show the houses listed with them unlike in the States.
  3. Agree on a price.
  4. Get a mortgage.
  5. Move in.
Another resource about buying a house is the Housing office.
