Selling with Roderick Thomas
  • paragraph

    Having decided to sell, your first decision is whether to sell your property yourself or through an agent. A good agent more than justifies his fee. So how do you find a 'good agent'? Experience is important but so is a commitment to the job and to getting the right deal for each client. This includes not only agreeing the best terms but ensuring the sale goes ahead in accordance with a projected time frame; the long delays associated with property sales are usually unnecessary and avoidable.As an Estate Agent and Surveyor, I have been selling properties for over 30 years. I, and everyone in my business, appreciate that all properties, buyers and sellers are unique and treat them accordingly. We stay in continual contact through the marketing stages and the actual sale process. We will meet you to agree the details of the sale. We negotiate the sale and will be available to you for ongoing discussions through to completion. With our experience we understand that buying and selling property can be both stressful and exciting at the same time! We are happy to explain all the details, procedures, legal and financial matters.

    Valuation Our valuation is entirely without charge or obligation. We will visit your property and discuss its current value, marketing, Home Information Packs (Hips) and costs.

    Instructions and Marketing When you instruct us to sell your property we will prepare fully illustrated sale particulars highlighting the properties advantages and selling features. Once you have approved these they will be printed.The property will be advertised both locally and nationally. Viewings are arranged to suit the prospective buyer and yourselves.All offers received will be put to you for your decision. We will negotiate with the prospective buyer to secure the best possible deal for you.

    Sale Agreed Having agreed a sale and settled all the details, we will monitor it closely to the exchange of contracts (when it becomes legally binding) and to completion. The long delays associated with property sales are mostly unnecessary and avoidable. We will take prompt action to clear problems, keeping the sale to the time forecast. This is particularly important when your sale needs to be tied in to the purchase of another property. We will keep you up to date and informed at all times.

    Instructing Solicitors When you accept an offer you will need to instruct a solicitor to act on your behalf. Your solicitor will handle all legal aspects of your sale. Being independent we will happily introduce you to local or national solicitors.

    Survey and Valuation If your Buyer needs a mortgage, the lender (usually a Bank or Building Society) will arrange a Mortgage Valuation which is normally carried out by a Chartered Surveyor. To support the agreed price we will provide the Surveyor with evidence of comparable sales

    Draft Contracts The draft contracts, based on the title deeds, are drawn up by your solicitor and sent to the buyer´s solicitor for consideration. Queries on certain points such as boundaries, fixtures and fittings, furnishings, construction and planning consents may well arise; we are here to clarify and help . Once the queries are settled and the draft contracts approved, they can be signed by both parties.

    Exchange of Contracts Once the contracts have been signed by both parties and exchanged, a deposit (normally 10% of the purchase price) is paid to your solicitor. At this stage, the sale is formalised and is legally binding.

    Completion Completion usually follows a few days or weeks after exchange of contracts. The balance of the purchase price is transferred to your solicitor and the keys released - Congratulations! You have now sold your property!

    Accepted Offer/Instructing Solicitors Once an offer has been accepted you will need to proceed with the full mortgage application and instruct a solicitor. Your solicitor will handle all the legal aspects otherwise known as the conveyancing.
    Survey and Valuation Your mortgage lender, usually a bank or a building society will arrange a Mortgage Valuation which is normally carried out by a Chartered Surveyor. This Report deals with the value and basic condition. As the buyer you will receive a copy of the Mortgage Valuation but you may also wish to have a more detailed report done. The usual types of additional Reports are:
    1. Homebuyer Survey/Valuation - this is the mid-range option. It is more expensive than the Mortgage Valuation but less than the Building Survey (see below). It is a basic service which will highlight any defects and problems that could impact on the value of the property. Compared to the Mortgage Valuation it is a more in-depth report and will highlight any points of concern which may need further investigation.

    1. Building Survey - More expensive then the mortgage or homebuyer survey it deals with the condition of the property more than the value.This is a comprehensive survey dealing with technical details of the construction, materials and condition. It highlights the full spectrum of defects from the more serious down to the insignificant.

    Searches Your solicitor will submit a local authority search. This checks local information on the property and the locality, these will then be outlined to you by your lawyer.
    Draft Contracts The draft contract is drawn up by the seller's solicitor based on the title deeds and is sent to your solicitor for consideration. Any additional queries or questions will be dealt with and the contract amended if necessary.
    Mortgage Offer When the Lender receives the satisfactory Mortgage Valuation, formal application, references and checks etc, a formal mortgage offer is sent to you and to your solicitor. The document is then signed, returned and funds requested by your solicitor.
    Exchange of Contracts Once the contract has been signed by both parties, a deposit (normally 10% of the purchase price) is paid. At this stage, the sale is formalised and is legally binding.
    Completion Completion usually follows, an agreed time after the exchange of contracts. The balance of the purchase price is transferred by your solicitor to the seller's solicitor and the keys released - Congratulations! You are now the owner of your new home!
