When an offer is made on a property it will most likely be subject to a mortgage and possibly the sale of the buyer’s property. If there is a problem with either, the sale will fall through.
As a member of the Property Ombudsman scheme, we are bound by the Estate Agents Code of Practice, which states we should endeavour where possible to acquire ‘proof of funds’ from the prospective buyer.
So, HomeLink will ask to see details prior to the sale property being taken off the market to protect our client.
Often buyers when asked will respond, ‘but my agent doesn’t ask for that’ The response will always be... don’t you think they should!
At HomeLink we will always put our clients first by protecting them and making sure the risk of a fall through is minimised. We do things right!
