Contract Ready Properties
The selling process doesn’t have to be complicated or take months.
Since arriving on the property scene in 1999 Franklins have been dedicated to improving the selling experience for its clients and the general public. Constantly driven to provide an ever more efficient service, we work closely with our clients to have contracts prepared as their properties come to the market. NOT after a sale is agreed.
This step makes perfect sense and does not typically incur clients in any extra cost. Few properties have no issues to resolve prior to sale. This pro-active approach means a contract can be ready once a buyer is found and greatly reduces the chances of a sale falling through un-necessarily. It is important vendors instruct a solicitor equally committed to accelerating the selling process.
The following steps are a guideline for vendors to have ‘THEIR house in order’ if selling to ensure a hassle-free sale in a timely fashion.
Our extensive selling experience and advice has already helped hundreds of satisfied clients. The process need not be protracted. Preparation and the right professionals can see your property sold and completed in a few weeks, NOT months.
Contract Ready Properties — the way forward.
Title Deeds / Map & Identity
In order for your solicitor to prepare contracts they will need the title deeds. If you do not have a mortgage you will need to locate the title deeds which may be with your solicitor.
If your house is mortgaged the title deeds will be held by your bank. You will need to give written authorisation to your solicitor to obtain title deeds from the bank. It takes approximately 2 weeks to get your title deeds from the bank.
Your solicitor must order an up to date map from the Land Registry which takes approximately 1 week to arrive.
