  • paragraph

    Marketing the Property
    Once confirmation of your instruction has been received, one of our negotiators will process your property for marketing purposes. From one visit they will produce high quality digital photographs, a full set of 3D floor plans, write and design property particulars for both on-line and off-line marketing. This complete set of property details is then uploaded onto all the top property portals where it is marketed to thousands of potential buyers within minutes.
  • paragraph

    Solicitors
    A solicitor will be required to handle the legal paperwork involved in transferring ownership of your property to the new buyer (conveyance). It is advisable to instruct your solicitor at the same time as putting your property on the market, to allow for collection of the necessary documentation. If you wish, we can recommend an efficient, value for money solicitor.

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

They will also organize all the supporting paperwork (where applicable) ie: Title deeds, copy of lease, fixtures and fittings list, seller's questionnaire, planning consent, guarantees, copy of building regulations and share of freehold certificate.
  • paragraph

    Service Charge Accounts and Building Insurance
    (in general this is not applicable to freehold properties)We recommend that you forward copies of your service charge accounts over the last three years, estimates for the forthcoming year, and building insurance certificates, to your solicitor the moment you instruct us to market your property.Alternatively, in case of apartment blocks, you can ask your solicitor to collect these documents from the managing agent.
  • paragraph

    Contract Approval
    This is when all preliminary enquiries from the draft contract and local search queries have been settled.

    Exchange of Contratcs
    Most buyers require mortgages. Once the mortgage offer has been confirmed, the purchaser is ready to exchange contracts with the seller(s) and the deposit, (usually 10% of the purchase price), is either telegraphically transferred or paid by the buyers solicitor, by bankers draft. The completion date is set at this stage.
  • paragraph

    Completion

    This is generally set a few days to a few weeks after exchange of contracts, depending on the personal requirements of the buyer and seller. The residual monies (usually 90%) are transferred from the buyers solicitor to your solicitors account.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      a cut above the opposition

      Your team seems to put in more effort, patience and determination. Everyone has a very professional, friendly, and positive attitude. A lot of good sound advice was given to me in how to present the house in order to get a quick sale at the right price. Overall you are a team that is a cut above the opposition I would strongly advise anyone selling their property to choose Archers above anyone else!

      John - Royston

    • Seller Testimonial

      first class service

      Archers provided us with a first class service, with their professionalism and knowledge of the property market. We approached Archers mainly because we were so dissatisfied with the agents already marketing our house. From the first meeting we knew immediately that Archers were the people who would get results and took their advice on how best to market our property. Within 5 days of being on their books we had several viewings and two very good offers, one of which was accepted. We will definitely use Archers in the future and will recommend them to our friends.

      Jack - Baldock
