Selling a property
Our residential conveyancing specialists help to ease the pressure by taking the time to fully explain each step of the process and keeping you up-to-date throughout.
The buyer’s solicitor may ask various questions about the property after the initial agreement contract has been signed. We will discuss these questions with you before answering them directly on your behalf.
The buyer will also be ensuring that finance is available to purchase the property and instructing a surveyor to carry out an inspection of your property on their behalf. Subject to everything being in order, you will be contacted by a member of our conveyancing team to arrange for you to sign the contract. When the buyer has signed an identical contract, these will be exchanged. This is the formal commitment for you to sell and the buyer to purchase the property on the terms agreed. At this stage, your completion date will be agreed. This is the date that you must leave the property.
Completion will only formally take place when the sale proceeds have been received by our conveyancing team on the completion day.
At this point, what was your property now belongs to the buyer, the title deeds to the property will be passed over and any mortgage and fees due will be repaid out of the monies received.
The money left, known as the balance or equity, will be sent to you unless this is being used to buy another property.
Our team will also regularly liaise with the buyers’ solicitors to ensure that any issues are dealt with immediately to minimise unnecessary delays.

“I just wanted to say that we are so grateful for all your help in getting through the buying process for our new home at Brailsford. Your kind and prompt attention to our queries, your willingness to be of help and the ease with which we were able to talk with you when we needed to – all of these made the process much smoother than we had hoped. I know we are now moving onto our final transaction of five in the last seven months (it’s a record for me!) with my daughter’s flat purchase in Beeston, but I wanted to thank you as soon as I was able. I will let you know once the funds are transferred.”
