Step by step guide to the legal process of selling your home:

  1. Your solicitor will obtain your Title Deeds, from you or your bank, to prove you own the property.
  2. Your solicitor will draft the contract with the agreed terms.
  3. Your solicitor will prepare and Information Pack about the property to include everything about the property such as fixtures and fittings, Title Deed and Contract. This is sent to the Buyer’s solicitor.
  4. You now wait for the buyer to agree to the terms of the contract, this is the part of the negotiation that can be lengthy.
  5. Once the contract terms are agreed, a completion dates (moving date) is agreed, contracts are signed and exchanged and the buyer pays a deposit. At this stage it is now a legally binding contract.
  6. When the completion date is reached, the balance of the sale price is sent to your solicitor, who then pays off your mortgage, any estate agency fees, his/her legal fees and any balance is sent to you or to another solicitor if this sale is funding another home purchase for yourself.
  7. Finally the Title Deed is sent to the Buyer’s solicitor.
