If you are selling your home, you need an experienced property sale solicitor to deal with the transaction on your behalf. It is important to be represented by someone who has a good understanding of property law as well as the conveyancing process.
At Lockings Solicitors, we deal with sales for a range of properties, to include those with complex legal titles or where there is a tight deadline for exchange. We have the expertise to deal with difficulties that might arise, for example in respect of the legal title. This means that we are usually able to avoid delays that could potentially cause the transaction to fall through.
As solicitors selling property, we always work to meet deadlines wherever possible and we understand that it is often the case that you will want your sale to be completed quickly. As well as ensuring we respond to all correspondence as soon as it is received, we also prompt buyers’ solicitors regularly to ensure they are moving the transaction on.
If you need an experienced solicitor for selling property, we will be happy to hear from you. You can ring us for a FREE initial chat on 01482 300 200, email us at email@example.com or complete a Free Online Enquiry and we will call you back promptly. We have offices in Beverley, Hull and York and deal with conveyancing in East Yorkshire and beyond.
We can deal with your sale transaction from start to finish, to include the following:
We also deal with property purchases and where necessary can tie in a purchase with your sale.
As well as sound legal expertise, our team is known for the level of service we provide. We will ensure that we are easy to contact throughout your time with us and we will make ourselves available to answer your questions.
We are often recommended by our clients to their friends and family for their conveyancing and we have received many testimonials, which you can view for each of our offices by following the links below:
We provide a clear price guarantee. We will make sure you have a clear idea of the costs from the outset. We can go through them with you over the phone if you would like to ring us, or you can download our Conveyancing Fees Guide.
The length of time the conveyancing will take usually depends on how quickly your buyer receives their search results and mortgage offer. Where there are several people in a chain, the transaction could move more slowly.
We always make sure we stay in close contact with buyers’ solicitors, chasing them where necessary to avoid delays. On average, conveyancing takes between eight and twelve weeks to complete, once a buyer has been found.
You will need to provide a valid Energy Performance Certificate. This can be arranged by the estate agent when you put your property on the market. It will be carried out by an accredited domestic energy assessor. The EPC will be valid for ten years, so you may already have one if you bought your property recently.
You are recommended to approach a solicitor when your house goes onto the market. If you choose us to carry out your sale for you, we will do the necessary work to verify your identity, as required by law, and open a file in readiness. We will also send you a property questionnaire and fixtures and fittings list to fill in. These documents will be sent to the buyer’s solicitor together with the contract papers at the start of the transaction.
By instructing us early on, we will be able to get ourselves in a position to send the contract package as soon as you find a buyer. This can save time, as your buyer’s solicitor will then be able to use the plan we send to them to apply for searches straightaway.
If you give us a call, we can let you know how much the conveyancing costs will be for your sale. Alternatively, you can download our Conveyancing Fees Guide which will provide you with the relevant information.
It is sometimes the case that a survey finds an issue that needs rectifying or that will need work in the near future. It is open to you to negotiate a reduction in the sale price to take into account the cost of the work.
We will let you have the contract for signature in readiness for exchange. The contract will not become legally binding until we formally exchange it over the phone with the buyer’s solicitor. This is the point at which the completion date is set and the buyer will pay a deposit of 10% which we will hold pending completion. We will liaise with you prior to exchange as to the date and you should also ensure that you are able to secure a removals firm for the suggested day before we exchange.
You should read the electricity and gas meters before you leave the property. Once you have vacated it, the keys can be left with the estate agent. When we receive the balance of purchase money from the buyer’s solicitor, we will ring the estate agent and let them know that they can release the keys to the buyer.
We will arrange to pay off your mortgage and account to you for the remainder of the money from your sale.
