Selling a house

When you decide to sell your house it is not a decision that is taken lightly. These transactions involve large sums of money, often already spoken for if you’re buying another home, paying debts or adding to your savings. As with any stressful transaction we know you want the sale of your house to go as smoothly and as quickly as possible. When selling, the speed is often set by the chain involved and can depend on everyone else’s movements within that chain, which can be frustrating. We are here to do our utmost on your behalf to get things moving as quickly as possible whilst protecting your best interests.

Selling a house: Fixed-rate pricing

With large sums of money and time involved in the sale of a home we know how expensive it can potentially be. That’s why we offer fixed-rate pricing for both sales and purchases helping you keep your conveyancing costs to a minimum. When you call for a quote we will provide you with our fixed-fee rate over the phone and this means there aren’t any hidden surprises along the way.

Selling a house: Communication revolution

Selling a house can be complex, pressured and stressful particularly where a chain is involved. Keeping up to date with progress and communication between parties is vital to you and to us and so we’ve made it easy. Initially we can take your instructions over the phone or by email so you don’t have to come in and see us. Once we’re working together we will ensure there is a dedicated member of our team assigned to your case. You will be able to contact us by phone or email whenever you like and we will strive to contact you proactively when there is progress on your sale. In the unlikely event that we are unable to take your call we promise to return all calls on the same day and respond to all emails on the same day as well. As well as this you can track your case at any time online through MyCase – call us today to ask about it.

Selling a house: Exchanges

Selling a house can be an uncertain and fragile process. Property Law states that nothing is certain until contracts are exchanged, which is why we aim to exchange contracts as quickly as possible for you. Once that stage has been reached you are protected – it’s what you want and so we make this our top priority.
