2017 New Year Resolutions Selling your House? Our Top Tips
January 11, 2017
- Get your documents together Your buyer’s solicitor will need to see copies of any building regulation certificates, records such as service of boilers, guarantees or planning permissions etc. If you do this when you put your house on the market, this means that you will be organised and avoid delay
- Property information forms You will be required to complete forms that provide information on your property. These are standard property forms that all sellers have to complete. You should answer these carefully and honestly since the answers you give are binding on you and form part of the contract. If you do not know the answer to any of the questions, you should answer “not known” or “not to my knowledge” or “some variation”. You should not leave the question blank and should certainly not answer “no” unless you are certain that that is the case. If you are unsure or have any questions, please do ask us.
- Working together as a team We will deal with all the legal issues and your estate agent will deal with any negotiations or other practical issues of the sale. We work closely with all agents who instruct us and also will work with you to help your sale progress smoothly and quickly. Good communication between all parties is necessary and we will do all we can to assist you.
- Moving dates There are all sorts of circumstances which will affect the choice of moving date. This is especially so if your sale is in a series of transactions (known as a property chain). We will do everything we can to get your preferred date but patience and flexibility are key to helping smooth progress!
