We inspect your property and advise you of the approximate opinion of value & suggested asking price.
Private Treaty, Public Auction, Online Auction or Sale by Tender. Each method has its own advantages and disadvantages. We discuss the most suitable for your particular property & advise you of our recommended best option.
We exchange the property services agreement with you and your legal representative to ensure that everything is in order.
We agree and confirm our sale fee (plus VAT.), payable in the event of a successful sale. There is also an additional listing/outlay cost for registration and marketing.
We provide a marketing campaign specifically tailored to your property. This includes a colour brochure, For Sale signage within the boundary of your property and uploads on the various relevant websites. We also advise you of discretionary optional extras for marketing your property.
We discuss Energy Rating (BER Cert) Requirements. A BER Cert is simply an energy label for your home, similar to that on electrical appliances. The label has a scale of A-G. Since January 1st, 2009 a BER Certificate is compulsory for all homes being offered for sale or lease/rent. We can arrange this for you.
We instruct your solicitor on your behalf. He/she will request title deeds from your bank/building society. We can suggest a local solicitor from a trusted panel if you do not have one.
We advise on how best to prepare your property for viewing. Read our tips below on how to give the best possible impression.
We keep you and your solicitor updated and up-to-speed on all interest shown in your property during the campaign.
We seek a booking deposit from the proposed purchasers (subject to contract) once we secure agreement on a potential sale. Your solicitor and the proposed purchaser's solicitor will be informed accordingly.
Contracts are then sent by your solicitor to the proposed purchaser's solicitor, signed, and the balance (if any) of the deposit is paid. A completion date is agreed and the transaction is duly finalised by your solicitor. Our fee plus V.A.T. and relevant outstanding additional out-of-pocket expenses are payable on completion.
