Selling a house is an important decision. It can also be one of the most stressful, overwhelming and emotional times for anyone to go through. The legal process or ‘conveyancing’ involved in selling your home is not often explained in simple terms or made clear. We have produced a diagram to show the process of buying and selling a house from both sides of the transaction (with typical timescales). You can also find out more on the Legal Choices website and we also have our own booklet explaining the process, which we send to all new clients before starting work.
If you are looking to sell a house, we are here to guide you through each step of the process and keep you fully informed, whether you are selling a property for the first time or an experienced property developer.
The thought of selling your home and the upheaval of moving can be daunting. Our experienced property lawyers can help you with, and go through with you the information that will be required to prepare the contract for sale, which involves completing some forms and providing relevant documents. We can assist with responding to any questions raised by the buyer’s conveyancing solicitors and obtaining any further documentation that may be needed.
We also understand that timing and timescales can be crucial especially if you are tying a purchase with your sale and there is a chain of parties involved. We will work closely with the buyer’s solicitors to ensure that an effective line of communication is maintained throughout the process. We will liaise with the estate agents and, if you are selling a property with a mortgage, we will deal with the redemption of your mortgage by communicating effectively with your lender as well.
Our experienced team of property solicitors and advisors are friendly and approachable and you can rely on us to provide you with an efficient, warm and personal service throughout.
