Conveyancing – Sale

Our dedicated estate agency team will expertly handle the marketing of your property and provide you with lots of helpful hints and tips to get the best possible price for your home.

Once the best sale price for your property is negotiated the formal written offer will be passed to our conveyancing team.

The conveyancing process for a sale is primarily about supplying various legal documents, including the property title deeds to the buyer’s solicitor and answering any technical questions.

In essence, the buyer and the buyer’s lender must be satisfied that the title is valid before handing over the purchase price on the date of entry.

  • Receiving the purchasing solicitor's formal offer and agreeing terms. Issuing the formal acceptance letter and concluding missives.
  • Exhibiting the title deeds, searches, and alteration documentation.
  • Answering the buyer’s solicitors' observations about the title, alteration documentation, common repairs to tenement (either already carried out or outstanding) or inhibition or entry noted on the search against the seller.
  • Contacting the lender and obtaining a loan redemption figure. The redemption figure will then be paid to the lender on the day of settlement. A signed Discharge shall then be obtained from the lender.
  • Settling on the date of entry by delivering a signed Disposition and the keys in return for the payment of the sale price
  • Responding to purchasers' queries
  • Progressing transaction to receive the sale price

Remitting payment of net free proceeds to you or applying them to your next purchase.
