Sold! What happens next?

What we do:

  • As soon as an offer is received we will notify you both verbally and in writing
  • We qualify all our buyers and will be able to advise on the likelihood of the offer proceeding
  • Once the offer has been accepted we will prepare a Memorandum of Sale and write to all parties, confirming the agreed sale price.

It is our aim to keep you informed throughout the whole process, liaising with both you and the buyer's solicitor to keep the process as smooth as possible.

What you do:

The first and most essential step is to instruct a solicitor. But before you do, ask about Hunters Conveyancing, it could save you both time and money. If you are in a chain then you will need to have your mortgage offer confirmed (if applicable) and arrange for a survey of your purchase property. Your solicitor will keep you informed of anything further you need to do.


What your solicitor will do:

  • Week 1: Request the title deeds from your current lender
  • Week 2: Send out the relevant property forms
  • Week 3: Request some money on account
  • Week 4: Apply for searches
  • Week 5: Ask you to agree which fixtures and fittings will be included
  • Week 6-7: Once the contract has been signed by both parties, the deposit (typically 10% of the purchase price) is transferred (or paid in the form of a Banker's Draft) by the buyer's solicitor into your solicitor's account.
