Why choose Premier to sell your property?
  • paragraph

    Your property is likely to be the most valuable asset you own so therefore you need an agent who understands the complete sales process from start to finish and one that is able to provide you with an expert service throughout selling your property

    We are an independent family firm who focus on building a relationship with our clients and ensuring a well-managed sale.

    Before going any further you must decide on what is important to you? Is it low agency fees or achieving the best possible price for your property?

    We are passionate about securing the guide price or higher for your property, wherever possible. Our honest advice to you is to air on the side of caution when considering instructing a lower priced agent. They rely on selling as many houses as possible, as quickly as possible. This can have a detrimental effect on the sale price achieved, as sometimes your best interests are not their top priority.

    By choosing Premier not only will you benefit from over 75 years of experience but you will also have access to expert staff and resources to assist every step of the way. We will identify what is important to you and what you specifically require from us.

    We can then tailor a sales package to suit your exact requirements.

    Arranging your mortgage

    We advise that prior to embarking on your property search you carefully consider your finances and get a mortgage agreed in principle if required. It is wise to use a mortgage broker with access to the whole mortgage market so that they are therefore able to access the best deals available. We can recommend one should you require assistance.

  • paragraph

    Register your interest

    Once you have calculated your budget and identified your property requirements you can register your interest with local estate agents. Aim to select one with a good reputation, a strong knowledge of the area of your search and with a wide selection of properties available

  • paragraph

    The key to successful viewings

    In order to maximise your chances of securing a property we recommend an early viewing.

    Consider the following:

    • Will your estate agent conduct viewings outside of traditional office hours offering you the opportunity to view properties at a time that is convenient to you?
    • Will your estate agent be accompanying you to viewings? If so you will have the benefit of them being on hand to advise you when necessary
  • paragraph

    Instructing a solicitor

    The successful purchase of a property can be reliant on the instruction of an experienced solicitor. Premier can recommend experienced solicitors to you if required.

  • paragraph

    Making an offer

    Once you have found a suitable property the next step is to make an offer. For this to be legitimate the offer must be communicated in writing to your estate agent even inclusive of any special conditions that the offer is subject to and you must be able to demonstrate if required that you are financially able to proceed.

    Remember, there are no legal obligations until the contracts are signed.

  • paragraph

    Offer agreed

    Once an offer has been accepted your estate agent will do the following:

    • Prepare a memorandum for sale
    • Write to all parties to confirm the agreed price
    • Ask you to confirm your solicitor's and mortgage brokers details
  • paragraph


    The conveyancing process requires your solicitor to:

    • Draft any preliminary enquiries on receipt of the draft contract from the seller's solicitor.
    • Request their own local searches
    • Agree on a date for exchange of contracts
    • Propose a date for completion

    Your estate agent should be willing to assist your solicitor where required and negotiate throughout the process, keeping you informed every step of the way

  • paragraph

    Exchange of contracts

    The exchange of contracts signifies that both parties are now legally bound to proceed with the sale. This occurs when the following have been confirmed and agreed:

    • Preliminary enquiries following receipt of draft contract
    • Evidence of a good title
    • Local search queries
    • Fixtures and fittings to be included in the sale
    • Your mortgage offer has been confirmed

    Once the contracts have been signed by both parties the deposit will be transferred and the completion date can be set by mutual agreement.

  • paragraph


    Completion is when the residual monies are transferred to the seller's solicitor allowing the estate agent can release keys.

    Testimonials from Sellers

    • Seller Testimonial

      I relied on him for his excellent advice
      I recommend Tom Mizen (Residential Sales Manager) highly. He is very professional and really knows about selling houses. He has been an enormous help, all the way from our first discussion, to completion of the sale. In fact a period of over a year because there was so much to do in the house to bring it up to its optimum state for sale. I relied on him for his excellent advice and help in finding tradesmen for the many jobs needed around the house. When we came to discuss a selling price, I felt I could accept his recommended asking price as I knew he had thoroughly researched the local market. Within 5 days of my house appearing on the market he had achieved more than the asking price, So I am very satisfied. Mr M Stone, Oxford
    • Seller Testimonial

      ~Would not hesitate to recommend
      Sold our house through Premier's Tom Mizen. Once we signed up, Tom was always available on the phone and also promptly responded to non-urgent texts. Kept us informed every step of the way and chased both sides' solicitors when they were dragging things out. In fact Tom did more to liaise with us and speed things up than either solicitors! Thanks Tom. Would not hesitate to recommend!
      Mrs V West, Oxford
