Hi Alex,

Thanks again for taking the time to show me around the property. 

I would like to make an offer on the above property (subject to contract).

  • Price £425,000
  • I can exchange within 28 days of receipt of contract if required
  • Completion by mutual arrangement – I can complete at the vendor's convenience.
  • [If cash-buyer] My solicitor will confirm that I am in funds and do not require a mortgage.
  • [If mortgage] The funds will be a mixture of cash and borrowings. I have a mortgage in principle arranged with Nationwide at an LTV of 60%. Please see below for the details of my broker should you wish to confirm. I have attached proof of funds for the remainder of the money to this email. 

Should your client wish to proceed, please confirm and I will instruct my solicitor immediately.

Whilst this is the only property I am offering on, I would greatly appreciate it If the vendor could get back to me as soon as possible because I have several other viewings lined up and would like to secure something very soon. If there is anything else that you require please do let me know. 

John Smith
