Are you looking to sell your home? Do you have a lot of questions about the process?

No problem!

Our team at Andrew and Andrew can help to take the stress out of selling your property, be it the first time you have sold or the 15th! Our conveyancing solicitors Emsworth have a wealth of knowledge about all areas of conveyancing law and can answer any questions you may have to help you make sense of the proceedings.

And as such, in this article, our conveyancing solicitors Emsworth provide a rough guide to the selling process, so if you are looking to sell your home and don’t understand the legal jargon, look no further!

Finding a legal representative

First, before you start the process of selling your home, you need to find reliable conveyancing solicitors Emsworth to help you. And this is where our team comes in!

Once you have chosen a team, you will need to instruct them on what you want to be done. If you are stuck here, don’t worry, we know the drill!

Typically, this may involve mortgage applications, or our team keeping you updated on the mortgage you have applied for. We will begin searches on your home to ensure that there are no legal grey areas, such as zoning issues. If there are, we will work to resolve them to help the sale go through as promptly as possible and will report them back to you.

Contracts

OK, this is the key reason why you need a legal professional to handle the sale of a house; drawing up contracts!

This is where our team and the buyer’s team (another set of legal representatives) draw up contracts that will probably need some hammering out until both sides are happy with the final document. The technical jargon that goes into such documents needs to be worded in such a way that there is no ambiguity; we can do this and ensure that you get the money you are asking for and more.

At this stage, you will not need to be in attendance at these meetings, as we will represent you. Of course, before we make any final decisions on the selling of your home, we will discuss them with you to check that you are happy with what we are doing on your behalf. If you aren’t, just tell us and we will make changes! We will aim to make this stage go through as quickly as possible, but it may take several months, especially if there is a lot to discuss.

Completion

Completion is the day that is agreed upon by our team and your home buyer’s legal team and yes, it is the day when you have to leave and hand over the keys to the new owner. But don’t worry, we will tell you when it is so you can prepare.

It is also the day when our team will receive the money from the sale of your home, so you can pay off the rest of your mortgage and move on to your next home.
