Receiving An Offer

As soon as an offer on your property is received we will notify you both verbally and in writing. We will negotiate the best price on your behalf.

Agreeing To Sell

Once a price has been agreed it is important that the following details are requested.

  • Mortgage Certificate (provided free of charge by our In- house independent Mortgage Advisors)
  • Chain information – often the purchase of a property depends upon the sale of another
  • Date of exchange of contracts
  • Date of completion
  • Details of any extras included or excluded from the purchase

We will advise you and negotiate on your behalf throughout the entire process; keeping you informed every step of the way.

Draft Contract

Once the transaction is agreed, your Solicitor will send out your Legally Ready Pack to the purchaser's Solicitor who in turn will carry out preliminary enquiries. They will also verify all the supporting paperwork (where applicable) i.e.: Title Deeds, copy of Lease, fixtures and fittings list, seller's questionnaire, planning consent, guarantees, copy of building regulations and share of freehold certificate, etc.

Contract Approval

This occurs when all preliminary enquiries from the draft Contract and local search queries have been settled.

Exchange Contracts

Most buyers require mortgages. Once the mortgage offer has been confirmed, the purchaser is ready to exchange Contracts with the seller. The Contract is signed by buyer and seller and the deposit, (usually 10% of the purchase price), is either telegraphically transferred or paid in the form of a bankers draft by the buyer's Solicitor. The completion date is set at this stage.


This can be set from a few hours to a few weeks after exchange of Contracts - depending on the personal requirements of the buyer and seller. The residual monies (usually 90%) are transferred from the buyer’s Solicitor to your Solicitor’s account and our account is then paid on your instructions by the Conveyancing Solicitor.
