Accepting an Offer
When an offer is accepted, we will suggest our recommended solicitors to act on your behalf and notify the buyers solicitor of all the relevant details.
Keeping You Informed
Once solicitors are instructed one of the team will regularly report to you with updates on your sale. Your buyer may need a mortgage valuation or a more detailed survey. They will also need to pay for the local authority searches. Your solicitor will need to prepare and issue a draft contract to the buyers solicitors who will then need to raise additional enquiries. This is standard procedure, and of course required throughout the whole chain.
Exchange of Contracts
When both solicitors are ready and all involved have agreed a mutual completion date, your solicitor will request relevant fees and deposits to be held on account in preparation of exchange of contracts. When this happens, we will contact you and confirm the completion date and offer further advice recommending removal companies etc.
From having your offer accepted or agreeing the sale of you own property, there is likely to be between 8 & 14 weeks in between. If you are selling with us, we request that you deliver your keys to our office when your removal company have packed your items in their vehicles and have finished. If you are buying with us, we will contact you once we have received notification from the vendors solicitor giving authority to release keys – you are then welcome to call into our office to collect the keys to your new home.
