Stages of the Process (Sale)
The precise stages involved in the sale of a residential property vary according to the circumstances. However, below we have suggested some key stages that you may wish to include:
- Take your instructions and give you initial advice
- Prepare and advise on contract documents
- Deal with any necessary enquiries raised by the purchaser’s solicitor
- Give you advice on all documents
- Obtain Mortgage Redemption Figure (if applicable)
- Send final contract to you for signature
- Approve Transfer
- Agree completion date (date from which you own the property)
- Exchange contracts and notify you that this has happened
- Complete sale
Our fees assume that:
- this is a standard transaction and that no unforeseen matters arise including for example (but not limited to) a defect in title which requires remedying prior to completion or the preparation of additional documents ancillary to the main transaction
- this is the sale of an existing lease and is not the grant of a new lease
- the transaction is concluded in a timely manner and no unforeseen complication arise
- all parties to the transaction are co-operative and there is no unreasonable delay from third parties providing documentation
- no indemnity policies are required. Additional disbursements may apply if indemnity policies are required.
