Selling a Property Northampton

Are you selling your home? Selling your property is both a thrilling and overwhelming experience and requires a lot of preparation. However, there are processes that make it a little bit easier and at Your Conveyancing Solution, our team of conveyancing solicitors are on hand to aid you with these.

When selling, we understand it’s not always cost but the speed of sale that’s paramount. You need a solicitor that communicates quickly and gets to completion with the minimum of fuss. Your Conveyancing Solution provides the right fit for your requirements by working with companies operating to the swiftest timelines.

Stage your home ready for the sale

Staging your home means making it sale-ready i.e. making your household look its finest, equally in the advert and when potential buyers come to visit the property. There is no major renovation to be done it’s just the slight things like the “quick fixes.”

What documents do I need when selling my property?

When selling a property there are a number of papers that will be required for you to have. As the seller of the property you would need to have the following two main things:

Proof of identity: You will need to display to your solicitor your passport or driving licence and proof of address such as a utility bill or bank statement.

Property title deed: If you don’t have these credentials, then the mortgage lender may do. Your lawyer will also need to have official copies of your title deeds from the land registry office.

What is conveyancing and why do I need it?

Conveyancing is a vital procedure in both purchasing and selling properties. We are experts in supporting the settlement and handover procedure by confirming that the customer is meeting all the legal requirements and that our client’s privileges are protected during this course.  You’ll be asked for your property deeds. If you own the property you might hold these deeds yourself or have them recorded with a solicitor. If you have a mortgage on the property, then the deeds will be held by the creditor and we will request them from the lender directly.

Our licensed conveyancers will also request you to check and approve the property information from which outline all that will be included in the drawn contract. We communicate with the buyer’s solicitor and yourself with regards to any queries or concerns from the buyer’s side about the property utilities, any items to be included in the sale and so forth.

Legal advice

We are on-hand to take on a lot of the legal work desired to help you make the right choices and navigate this process effectively. If there are any specific situations that must be involved in the agreement of sale, we will be able to guide you. The special conditions will be different for each individual due to them being dependant on your own circumstances. For example, if you wish for your settlement date to overlap with another purchase settlement your conveyancer will organise this for you.

This is incredibly helpful for you if you are buying and selling at the same time. We can also aid you regarding the authorised papers that you will need to give to the buyer to complete the settlement. We can communicate with your mortgagee if needed and arrange for this to be cleared on the date of the payment. We’ll have all these obligatory documents ready for you on the date of settlement so this way there is no misunderstanding.

Decide on how many agents you want to use

A sole agency arrangement is when an agent is taken on board by the seller and is the only one that deals with the sale of a property for a settled term, typically 8 to 12 weeks. Throughout that time, the seller should not change from or get advice from another agent if this does occur then the seller may end up paying more than one charge. Even if a seller contracted up to a 10-week sole agency, and they dismiss the agreement when they are halfway, they may still be accountable if an additional agent sells the home in what would’ve been the 5 remaining weeks of the unique sole agency.

In a multi-agency arrangement, there are no boundaries on how many agents a seller can contact and gather advice from and there is no fixed term either. The agents market the property concurrently and the seller pays only the agent that gets a buyer for the property, but they won’t get paid by the seller until the contract has been completed.

Both types of agreements have their advantages and disadvantages, the charge amount for the sole agency is lower priced than the multi-agency but if you want to get your property on many different estate agent websites then the multi-agency is much better because you won’t be stuck with one for the whole duration.
