Selling Process
Redstones guide to selling your home

Selling Process

Valuing your property accurately takes skill and experience, vital to be able to achieve the optimum price.

Choosing the right agent is vital to obtaining the maximum price for your property, you should consider how they will present your property, what marketing you will receive and are they available to conduct viewings evenings and weekends.

Please note that the Home Information Pack duties are suspended with immediate effect from 21 May 2010. This means that homes marketed for sale on or after this date will no longer require a Home Information Pack.

However the Government still requires that an ENERGY PERFORMANCE CERTIFICATE (EPC) is commissioned, but not necessarily received before marketing can start. Redstones can arrange this for you.

it is advisable to find and instruct your solicitor at the same time you place your property on the market, as this allows time for the collection of necessary documents and helps to avoid delays.

Instruct REDSTONES to sell your property and you will benefit from a powerful and comprehensive marketing package.

Professionally printed brochures 3D floor plans, colour photographs, location maps live on our website within days and a printable colour brochure.

To be able to sell your property faster, we are able to maximise viewing opportunities by showing your property evenings and weekends.

Once we have received an offer on your property we will contact you immediately and discus the merits of the offer, also confirming the same in writing.

At the time you accept an offer it is important to agree:-

  • Items to be included within the sale price.
  • A target date for the buyer's survey on your property.
  • Target date for exchange of contracts.
  • Target date for completion (moving day).

Using our experience we will advise you and negotiate on your behalf throughout this process, keeping you informed at all times.

Once you have accepted an offer, we will inform both solicitors' of the agreed sale, your solicitor will then send out a draft contract to the purchaser's solicitor who in turn carries out preliminary enquiries.

Supporting paperwork should be put together by your solicitor i.e.: title deeds, seller's questionnaire, planning consent, any guarantees, fixtures and fittings list, (copy of the lease, share of freehold certificate in the case of leasehold properties, normally flats and apartments).

Exchange of contracts is the last stage of the legal process and occurs when all preliminary enquiries and local search queries have been agreed.

Most buyers do require a mortgage, so once the mortgage offer has been received, the purchaser is then ready to exchange contracts with the seller.

This generally takes place a few days to a few weeks after exchange of contracts (but also can take place on the same day or even several months later) depending on each party's requirements.
