How do I go about buying a house off the landlord if it’s a private sale not through an agency?
We’ve lived in this house for 4 years now and we are looking to get on the property ladder if we get accepted for a mortgage but we don’t have any experience in property, we’ve been reading about it and trying to learn. The house was valued at £85,000 and we asked the landlord if he would sell to us as he has 5 properties, he said he would but wouldn’t list it up for sale with an agency and he would only sell to a tenant who already lived their. So if it’s not going to be sold via an agency what pitfalls should we be trying to avoid and will the bank sort everything out for us? Any advice is greatly appreciated
