Why choose Stephensons when selling your house?
What we quote for is what we do – other solicitors may ‘appear’ to be cheaper but that is often because they don’t cover all costs. We include the price of compulsory searches in our quotes, referred to as disbursements so that you are fully aware of the total cost but do not make up part of our legal fees.
Once you instruct us to act for you a case manager will be allocated to your file and you will have their contact details – including direct dial and email address – this will provide you with certainty that your case is being handled by your own dedicated specialist who will be more than happy to discuss your sale to ensure that you are fully aware of the process.
Selling a house
Anyone wishing to sell their property can market it for sale. Very often this will be done by an estate agent in the locality of the property.
Once the property has been sold the seller's solicitor will send a contract and copies of the title to the property to whoever acts for the buyer. The seller will be expected to complete property information forms (giving details of the property) and a fixtures, fittings and contents form (confirming what is included in the sale price).
The seller may also be asked to answer specific questions about the property raised by the buyer's representative. Once the buyer confirms they are ready to proceed a completion date is set. On that date any current mortgage on the property is paid off and the seller's belongings must be removed from the property so that when the keys to the property are handed over to the buyer nothing is left behind which should not be.
On the completion day the proceeds of the sale after paying all expenses are paid over to the seller.
