Selling freehold and leasehold properties
Our expert property solicitors exchange contracts for you within your required timescales and are known to do so within 24 hours of being instructed (by attended exchange, subject to all the paperwork being in order!)
We are aware that selling a property can be stressful, whether you are new to the property market or are an experienced property developer. The sale process can be particularly daunting if you are looking to purchase a property at the same time and your transaction is dependent on a chain. Our expert solicitors are here to assist you to ensure that the process runs smoothly, and that the transaction is completed according to your timescale.
Our property solicitors can work to any time frame which is suitable to you to complete the sale of your property.
We can assist with sales of:
- Shared Ownership
- Retirement Properties
- Sales of properties purchased under the right to buy scheme
It’s important to instruct us
It is important that you instruct us as soon as possible (and ideally before the property goes on the market) to ensure we are prepared to send out a full set of contract papers to the buyer’s solicitors as soon as you have found a buyer.
What if the property is leasehold?
If you instruct us in advance, we obtain the service charge management information pack (which can often delay a sale), obtain the requirement of any landlord for consent (licence to assign) under the lease and arrange for everything to be ready in time. Should you wish to place any deadlines on the buyer to exchange by a certain time frame, this process ensures it will be reasonable do so.
What happens once you instruct us?
Once you instruct us, we promptly carry out all our identification checks, obtain monies on account from you, obtain the title deeds and assist you in completing the relevant property/protocol documents. We then arrange for the contract pack to be prepared.
We contact any lenders with charges on your property to obtain details of the sums outstanding on your mortgage. This ensures there are sufficient monies to pay off the existing loans, so that we can provide the necessary undertaking for payment of those loans to the buyer’s solicitors on completion.
Once you have found a purchaser and your agents have sent us the sales memorandum with details of the buyers and their solicitors, we will make immediate contact with them and issue contracts once they have confirmed instructions.
