Helping you to sell a house

As soon as you have agreed a sale, our team can help you with the legal process of selling your house.

Conveyancing process – selling a house

  • Contact us to give us details of you and your property
  • You can get an instant, comprehensive cost estimate for selling your house from our online conveyancing fees calculator
  • Tell your estate agent that our conveyancing solicitors are acting for you and give them our contact details

We will then send you:

  • A conveyancing quotation together with our terms and conditions and an instruction form to collect details of you, your buyer and the transaction
  • We will need proof of your identity (under Money Laundering legislation) or you can give us the approval to do identity verification checks

The next steps are then:

  • We will obtain the deeds to your property and the Land Registry copy entries we need to get started
  • You will be asked to give essential information about your house by filling in a ‘Property Information Form’ and a ‘Fixture, Fittings and Contents Form’
  • We will also need you to give us any documents you have such as guarantees or planning consents
  • We will send a draft contract to the buyer’s solicitors who must then carry out searches with the local authority and other agencies

We practice the latest house conveyancing methods to ensure your move is a hassle-free experience

We provide a fast, efficient and value for money service to our conveyancing clients using online search tools and other modern technology. We provide:

  • Instant online quotations
  • 24 hour case tracking through our secure online system
  • Fixed fee conveyancing for peace of mind on costs
  • Email updates and text messages at key stages of the transaction
  • Online case tracking
