5. Offers

Whenever an offer is received you will be informed verbally. We will advise you on whether its a good offer or whether their may be room to negotiate the deal. Our experienced team will negotiate on your behalf and advise you on the best applicant for your needs. At the end of the day it's your decision whether or not to accept an offer.

6. Sale Agreed

Once you have accepted an offer, your property will go sale agreed. We will then seek a booking deposit between 2%-5% of the purchase price and will remove the property from the market.

Sale agreed is not legally binding for either party and a booking deposit is refundable until contracts are exchanged.

The buyer at this stage will likely seek a structural survey and a bank valuation for the bank (if they are drawing down a mortgage) which your agent will help organise.

7. Exchange of Contracts

At this stage the solicitor's acting on your behalf will draw up the Draft Contract and send it to the buyers solicitor. Once the draft has been approved, it can be signed by both parties.

As long as the mortgage offer has been received and cleared funds placed with your buyer’s solicitor, a mutually convenient date can be agreed upon for the exchange of contracts.

The completion and your sale can take several months after exchange of contracts, depending you and the buyer and and your respective solicitors.
