Guide to buying your first home

Finding your first home and mortgage is an important and exciting time. But it’s a big commitment too.

Tried and trusted for generations, Chorley Building Society will explain all the options to help you make the right mortgage decision. We’ll also help explain to you the fees connected to buying a home, such as paying for building surveys, legal work by solicitors and stamp duty.

  • 1: Do your homework

    What savings do you have, what home would you like, what type of location do you want?

  • 2: Let’s talk mortgages

    Speak to us about your financial needs and what you can borrow.

  • 3: Agreement in Principle

    This is an agreement from us to help you in your discussions around buying your new home.

  • 4: Get viewing!

    Time to step-up your home searching and viewings now that you know how much money you can borrow.

  • 5: Full mortgage application

    You’ll meet a Chorley Building Society mortgage adviser to fill in an application

  • 6: Speak to a lawyer

    We’ll help find a solicitor to assist your property purchase – this is called conveyancing.

  • 7: The survey

    A friendly, expert valuer will check the property you want to buy to see that it’s correctly priced for its condition.

  • 8: Offer & exchange of contracts

    If you’re eligible, we will offer you a mortgage. Then you swap legal contracts with the property seller (vendor). The sale is now bound by law.

  • 9: Completion

    The mortgage and property buying process is complete. Hurray! Move in and enjoy your new home.

Types of Mortgages

We offer a great range of mortgages suited to different needs. Our discounted mortgages typically offer discounts from the standard variable rate for the first few years – typically two or five years – to help you in the early period of home-ownership. We have mortgages for borrowers with limited deposits living in the north of England; and or professionals, such as accountants, doctors and surveyors.
