    Selling Guide from Blake Mayhew

    When you have instructed Blake Mayhew to sell your home and when we have agreed a sale, our aim is to ensure your house sale and move is as stress free as possible. This guide will help you through the steps in the process. We are always available to discuss any concerns and to try to resolve any problems that arise


    Once you have agreed an offer on your property, we will take every care to check the buyers' financial position and research proof of funds if necessary, along with the full chain check to establish likely timescales to completion.


    You will need to instruct a solicitor to handle the sale of the property. We can obtain quotations for your legal costs from experienced local solicitors. We will obtain the buyers' solicitors details and sales letters issued to all parties. If you are only selling with no follow on purchase then proceed to step 4.


    If finance is required on a new purchase then you will need to arrange to see a financial advisor or bank/building society to apply for a mortgage. A cash buyer you will have to decide if they are having a survey carried out, which type, and pay surveyor fees. We can recommend several financial advisers and surveyors. Remember, a mortgage survey is the property of the mortgage provider. Mortgage arrangement fees and survey fees are paid.


    Sign the agreement with your solicitors to proceed with the sale. You will receive a pack from your solicitors and will need to complete a Fixtures and Fittings form and a Property Information form. It is also helpful to locate any deeds, lease agreements, management agreements, guarantees, planning consents and any useful information for your property and send this back to your solicitor, who will issue a Contract of Sale. The buyers' solicitor should apply for searches and usually contracts exchanged after enquiries answered and a mortgage offer received. The Buyer will have to pay search fees.


    If a survey is required, a surveyor, instructed by the buyer or mortgage provider, will do this. We can recommend contractors and offer advice to resolve any conditions or retention matters that arise from the survey.


    The searches received by the buyers' solicitor and any additional enquiries raised by buyers' solicitor are answered by your solicitor (who may ask you for information at this point).The solicitor will be able to advise the buyer of all contract matters and ask for the contract to be signed.


    The contracts are signed and returned by all parties. Completion dates are then finalised and confirmed. If buying on, then arrange buildings and contents insurance for the property. Cost to be incurred: Capital deposit to solicitor and insurance fees.


    Exchange of contracts takes place at this point and all parties are then legally bound. Removals can be booked, along with arranging utility suppliers, Anglian Water and Council Tax with the Local Authority.


    On completion day, the funds are transferred via your solicitor and completion of the sale occurs. At this point, the keys are handed over to the buyer. Sellers Estate Agent and Legal Fees are paid.


    Congratulations, the sale is now successfully completed.

      We found Blake Mayhew to be extremely helpful when they came round to value our home in the first instance, consequently we had Darren to go on to market our property - this was done with speed and efficiency, Viewings were arranged with very positive members of staff & within a few days a good buyer had been introduced and we expect the sale to go through in the normal time span. Good work Blake Mayhew.

      we were very impressed

      "Dear Darren & Chris

      Blake Mayhew Estate Agents have recently sold a house for us and we were very impressed with how helpful they were, giving good advice, and how hard they worked to sell our property. We have since recommended Blake Mayhew to friends and family and we won't hesitate to instruct Blake Mayhew again when we have another property to sell

    • Seller Testimonial

      You have given us an excellent service

      "Dear Darren & Chris

      I would also like to take this opportunity to give you some feedback on the service we have received from your company. Margaret and I have been married for thirty years and bought and sold eight houses up to now (we're moving into our ninth!). Unfortunately, in the majority of cases, the estate agents we used did little to enhance the reputation of the profession.

      How refreshing it was when we met you. You came recommended by a trusted friend and you have not let him down. You have given us an excellent service, always delivered, always been punctual and always communicated with us. You have worked hard for us and demonstrated that you really care.

      I know you are a new business and how hard it must be in the current market so if there is anything I can do to help prospective customers know how happy I am with what you have done, do not hesitate to ask. In the mean time if you wish to use this, or any part of this message in your advertising or other marketing activity please go ahead.

      Please also pass on our thanks to Chris and your staff. You have been totally professional and we would not hesitate to recommend you or to use you again.

      Best Wishes
      Peter and Margaret Sadler"

      no hesitation in telling friends

      "Dear Darren & Chris

      Having now moved into our bungalow in Felixstowe we would like to offer our sincere thanks for all you did on our sale in Tovells Road.

      You were punctual, professional at all times with a great eye for presentation and detail. You both were very helpful at all times and found you approachable even when we agreed the sale price as I know this was late at night !(9pm to be precise). This service was outstanding.

      Throughout the sale you both demonstrated high client care standards and having worked for a local solicitors for many years we have a great understanding of this.

      You always kept us informed and the sale proceeded smoothly with minimal stress to us.

      Therefore we would have no hesitation in telling friends and people we know to come to you in future if they are looking to sell or move house.

      Once again many thanks
      Mrs Dorreen Boroughs"
