Stages of the Process

The precise stages involved in the purchase of a residential property vary according to the circumstances.  We will undertake the following services which are included in the fee and include some key stages:

  • Take your instructions and give you initial advice
  • Draft and submit contract documents (this stage can take between one and two weeks)
  • Receive enquiries from the purchasers solicitors and forward to you
  • Receive replies to the enquiries from you and send to purchasers Solicitor (this stage can take between one to two weeks from submission of the contract pack)
  • Send the contract to you for signature
  • Agree completion date (date from which you sell the property)
  • Exchange contracts and notify you that this has happened (this stage should take place approximately five to six weeks from submission of the contract pack)
  • Arrange for redemption statements to be received from lender
  • Complete sale
  • Deal with payment of Estate agents commission

* Our fixed fee assumes that:

  • This is a standard transaction and that no unforeseen matters arise including, for example (but not limited to), a defect in title which requires remedying prior to completion or the preparation of additional documents ancillary to the main transaction.
  • If Leasehold, that this is the assignment of an existing Lease and not the grant of a new Lease
  • The transaction is concluded in a timely manner and no unforeseen complications arise
  • All parties to the transaction are co-operative and there is no unreasonable delay from third parties providing documentation
  • No indemnity policies are required. Additional disbursements may apply if indemnity policies are required
