  • Advice on buying property from Bovis Homes

    Hi all,

    I am trying to purchase a 4 bed Bovis home priced at £249,995, they have agreed to P/X my property at £190,000 and give me a 5% deposit.

    Now due to the current credit crunch I am only able to get £210,000 mortgage so this is what I can offer: they pay 16% deposit and still P/X my property?

    Is this completely unrealistic?

    I think most housebuilders are on the ropes, so a sale is a sale at present.

    The big thing is if you actually signed a contract - that makes things difficult as you are already in agreement.

    If not - haggle your heart out, and offer the lowest offer you dare.
