Selling a house or apartment
Putting your house on the market?
Selling the home of a deceased relative?
When it comes to selling your property, your main concern will be to maximise the sale value and hand over the property as soon as possible, especially if you have found a property you wish to move into.
Canny buyers can try to use problems, such as the title of the property, negative results from property searches or lack of planning permission documents, to drive down the agreed purchase price. Prudent sellers make sure that their documentation is watertight first. It is also worth exploring every option to raise the value of the property, such as extending the lease or buying the freehold.
Advice from the property lawyers at Myers & Co Solicitors at an early stage can ensure a smooth transaction, safeguard your position, speed up the sale and keep your buyer satisfied.
Before we draft the contract to transfer legal ownership of the property to the buyer, we will check that all the necessary documents are in order. If they are not, we can help you apply for them retrospectively or negotiate with the buyer’s solicitor on your behalf.
With leasehold property, we will contact the freeholder or managing agent to obtain their consent to the sale. We can do all this in advance, so that when you have a buyer, you can hit the ground running.
Our residential property solicitors will oversee the whole transaction for you, and can link it in to your purchase of a new property if required. From preparing the contract papers, liaising with the buyer’s solicitors, redeeming your mortgage and calculating the payment of stamp duty and other taxes.
