Choosing a Solicitor
We recommend that you choose a solicitor before you even find a property. Your solicitor will be able to advise on how best to hold ownership personally, jointly with your partner through an overseas company or even through an off shore trust. If you do not have an existing solicitor then Japan Services will be happy to recommend reputable firms who are experienced in handling expatriates' affairs.
Obtaining a Mortgage
Again, before selecting a property you should have the finance arranged in principle. You will know exactly what you can afford and how much capital you need to provide. Japan Services has excellent arrangements with a number of mortgage lenders and will normally arrange a mortgage for you as part of the full package.
Selecting a Property
Before even looking for a property, it is crucial that you decide if you are mainly interested in investment or want a property for your own use. It is usually a mistake to try and combine the two criteria. Understanding the priority for yourself is the most important.
Making an Offer
Once you have found a suitable property for your purpose you make an offer "subject to survey and contract". When your offer has been agreed it is time to instruct a surveyor.
Organising a Structural Survey & Final Price Negotiations
Having agreed a purchase price (subject to contract and survey), independent Structural Surveyor is asked to produce a critical report on the condition of the property and a current market valuation. The mortgage provider is also request to survey the property.
