Sold! A simple guide


What we do

As soon as an offer is received we will notify you both verbally and in writing. We qualify all our buyers and will be able to advise on the likelihood of the offering proceeding. Once the offer has been accepted we will prepare a Memorandum of Sale and write to all parties, confirming the agreed sale price. It is our aim to keep you informed throughout the contract period, liaising with both your and the buyer’s solicitor – thereby ensuring as smooth a process as possible. 


What you do

The first and most essential step is to instruct a solicitor. If you would like to find out about our Faster Legals service this please click here. If you are in a chain then you will need to have your mortgage offer confirmed (if applicable) and arrange for a survey of your purchase property. Your solicitor will keep you informed of anything further you need to do.


What your solicitor will do

Week 1 

Request the title deeds from your current lender

Week 2 

Send out the relevant property forms

Week 3 

Request some money on account

Week 4 

Apply for searches 

Week 5 

Ask you to agree which fixtures and fittings will be included

Week 6-7

Once the contract has been signed by both parties, the deposit (typically 10% of the purchase price) is transferred (or paid in the form of a Banker's Draft) by the buyer's solicitor into your solicitor’s account. The completion date is then agreed by both parties.
