Your valuation

We are very well placed to accurately value your property, market it to its best advantage, and help you secure a selling price which reflects current market conditions.

Presenting your property for sale

We offer advice on how to best present your property for sale.  Do ask us about our recommended declutterers and professional home stagers if you think they would be useful. A well-presented property is more likely to attract a reliable tenant, plus it’ll command a higher price. If you feel your home would benefit from interior design or refurbishment, we’ll happily recommend industry-leading design consultants to help you.

Serious buyers only

Before viewing, prospective buyers speak to us at length about their requirements.  If your home is on their shortlist, you can be assured that they are serious about buying a property like yours in your area.

Are you going to rent or buy next?

If the property we’re selling for you is your home, it’s likely that you are intending to sell your property and buy another. In this instance, it’s wise to consider the potential advantages of briefly renting before you buy again. Renting will make you a serious, chain-free buyer which is very attractive to sellers.

Appoint a solicitor or conveyancer

Once your property is on the market, you’ll need to instruct a solicitor or conveyancer to handle the legal aspects of your sale.

You will need to fill out various questionnaires that will be provided to you by your solicitor or conveyancer. These detail exactly what you intend to include with the sale of the house, such as white goods or certain fixtures and fittings. This is a legally binding document. If you do not own the freehold, these questionnaires will also require you to provide details of the leasehold or share of freehold.

Dealing with an offer

We are legally bound to pass on all offers to you, even if they fall short of your asking price. We will discuss these offers with you, and give advice as to the best next steps.


A survey will be carried out on your property on the buyers’ behalf.  We can help you at this stage until an acceptable formal offer is made.


Once you have accepted an offer in writing, both the buyer’s solicitor and your own solicitor will start the conveyancing process.

Your solicitor will draw up the contract and start responding to the buyer’s enquiries. When your solicitor is satisfied with the results of the searches and all queries have been dealt with, he or she will begin planning for the exchange of contracts.

Once you have exchanged contracts, both parties are legally committed.


A couple of days before completion, we will liaise with your buyer regarding the release of keys. Keys cannot be handed over until funds of the sale have been received.  At this point, your solicitor will register the ownership transfer at the Land Registry.

When you “complete”, your property officially belongs to your buyer.
