Our fees cover all of the work required to complete the sale of your home, including paying off your mortgage (if any) on completion of the sale. An idea of the costs involved is set out below but please contact us for a detailed quotation specific to the property you are selling.
Disbursements are costs related to your matter that are payable to third parties, such as the fee payable to the Land Registry for obtaining up to date copies of your deeds. We handle the payment of the disbursements on your behalf to ensure a smoother process.
How long it will take between you accepting an offer for your property and your sale completing will depend on a number of factors. The average process where there are no unexpected complications takes between 8 and 16 weeks.
It can be quicker or slower, depending on the parties in the chain. For example, if you agree to sell to a first time buyer, or a buyer with no related sale, purchasing with a mortgage in principle, it could take 8 weeks. However, if you are selling to someone who has a property of their own to sell then the process could take longer as your buyer’s own sale will need to be tied in with their purchase.
The precise stages involved in the sale of a residential property vary according to the circumstances. However, below we have suggested some key stages:
