Receiving an offer

As soon as an offer is received we will notify you both verbally and in writing.

Any special conditions of the offer will also be stated in writing and we will check the buyer's ability to proceed before you decide whether to accept the offer.


Offer agreed

Once you accept an offer we will do the following:

Prepare a memorandum of sale

Write to all parties to confirm the agreed sale price

Your solicitor will send out a draft contract to the buyer's solicitor who will then carry out preliminary enquiries. At this stage you will also be able to agree on dates for the survey on your property, exchange of contracts and proposed date for completion.

We will advise you and negotiate on your behalf throughout this process, keeping you informed every step of the way.


Please note there are no legal obligations until contracts are signed.


Exchange of contracts

Exchange of contracts occurs when the following have been confirmed and agreed:


Preliminary enquiries following receipt of draft contract

Evidence of a good title

Specific issues highlighted in the Lease, if applicable

Local search queries

Fixtures and fittings to be included in the sale

The buyer's mortgage offer

Once the contract has been signed by both parties the deposit (usually 10% of the purchase price) will be telegraphically transferred or paid in the form of a banker's draft by the buyer's solicitor to your solicitor. The completion date is then set by mutual agreement.



Completion is when the residual monies (usually 90%) are transferred from the buyer's solicitor to your solicitor's account.

Your solicitor will call you when the money has cleared in your account and will inform us to release the keys.
