After you have accepted an offer on your home, the next process (Conveyancing) doesn't have to be difficult. This also depends on the solicitor you use, we recommend that you use someone local that knows there area and may also have a good relationship with your Estate Agent and buyers solicitor. This will make it easier when progressing the sale on your behalf. 

If you do not have a chosen solicitor, please ask and I can recommend you to a Local Solicitor whom I have a good relationship with and trust to handle the sale in the way which I expect.

  • Instructing a solicitor at the point of instructing your Estate Agent is always advisable, this way there is no delay with the initial paperwork and as soon as a buyer has been found, the draft contracts can be sent out straight away, preventing unnecessary delays. 

  • Your solicitors will send a number of detailed questionnaires about the property such as what you intend to include with the sale, freehold/leasehold information.

  • If there is a mortgage on the property they'll want to see evidence of who the lender is for them to contact to settle the mortgage off on completion. 

  • Try to be as informative as you can and provide as much information as possible that is requested of you, this will save them having to re ask questions that the buyers solicitor is raising. 

  • When selling your property it can be very quiet for the first couple of weeks once you have filled in all the paperwork, this is due to the majority of the work being carried out by the buyers solicitors. 

  • It is always advisable to check in with your solicitors however on a weekly basis, after all, you're their client. Roe & Co Residential Sales however will also be in touch with your solicitor to help progress the sale throughout.

  • Once your buyers solicitor is in receipt of their mortgage offer/proof of cash purchase, searches and they're happy with the enquiries (questions) they've raised. They will then want to discuss an exchange & completion date, they'll then liaise with your solicitors to come to amicable date. Upon this being confirmed, the exchange will take place and completion there after.
