Call us, visit one of our offices or complete a market appraisal request form to arrange for one of our experienced members of staff to inspect your property and discuss current market conditions with you. We will recommend an asking price and propose a marketing strategy to suit your individual requirements.
Instruction to market and sell your property
We will prepare professionally printed particulars including photos, floor plans and window cards. We will agree what asking price you wish us to quote and suggest that you appoint a solicitor to apply for the deeds at this state. Mortgage holders should speak to their lender to establish if there are any unexpected penalties selling at this state.
Receiving an Offer
We will notify you both verbally and in writing of the amount and the position of the buyer; checking chains if applicable; check mortgage details with broker and discuss this with you before going back to the prospective buyer with your responses.
Once the sale has been agreed and Solicitors have been instructed by both Vendor and Purchaser we will write to all parties confirming the details in a memorandum of sale.
Once the Vendor’s Solicitors receive the title deeds and all supporting documents, they will prepare a draft contract and forward this with the supporting documentation to the Purchaser’s Solicitors.
Exchange of Contracts
Most buyers require mortgages. When the mortgage offer has been received in written original copy and the contracts have been approved and completion date agreed, the purchaser is ready to exchange contracts with the seller. Both Purchaser and Vendor need to sign their contracts and instruct their Solicitor to proceed. The Purchaser will also need to sign the mortgage offer and arrange for the deposit (which will need to be in cleared funds) to be sent to their Solicitors. On exchange of contracts you will need to ensure that satisfactory buildings insurance is in place.
The completion date will be negotiated prior to exchange of contracts and finalised when exchange takes place. On completion the balance of the monies (usually 90%) are transferred from the buyers Solicitor to the sellers Solicitors account and once this has taken place, the Purchaser will be given access to the property.
