Selling Property Conveyancing

We have acted for property Sellers in both the good times and the not so good times. We fully understand that when you as the vendor of a property has gone SALE AGREED with a particular individual that the hard part should be over.

We understand this and know that our clients need their transactions to progress to the exchange of binding contracts as soon as possible, as it is only at this point that both the vendor and purchasers are legally bound to the terms of sale as agreed. Once instructed as your property law solicitor we will immediately advise on the process and immediately act towards your goal of achieving legally binding contracts for sale at the earliest possible date.

Dealing with the unknown is daunting as therefore to assist you the following is a list of the steps involved in a straightforward property sale;
