Sale

Whether this is the first time you have sold, or whether it is your twentieth sale, we can help you every step of the way.

There are many reasons why you might want to sell. It could be the opportunity to move to a bigger home, or perhaps now is the time to downsize to a more manageable property. Regardless of the circumstances, no two transactions are the same, so it’s vital that you choose a law firm with experience in property law.

Making your move as cost-effective and hassle-free as possible, we guide you smoothly through the sale of your property. And, our expert and friendly conveyancing team is always here to answer any questions that you may have.

With experience of all types of property sales - from simple to complex - at Optimal Solicitors, we pride ourselves on delivering a professional and personal conveyancing service.

Failing to carry out the proper steps could be a costly mistake and could even lead to the transaction falling through. And, because we know how stressful selling a home can be, rather than making matters worse and confusing you with legal jargon, we provide the very best legal advice delivered in plain English.
So, when you appoint us, you can relax in the knowledge that your legal property needs are being taken care of.

How it works

Selling a property can be daunting, especially when you are unsure about the process. At Optimal Solicitors we keep things moving as quickly and efficiently as possible, while making sure that you always know what’s happening.
 
  1. We start the processes by collecting all the necessary information so that we can prepare the contract paperwork
  2. Next, we send this to your buyer and deal with any questions they might have about the property and the sale
  3. Once your buyer’s solicitor has carried out all the necessary searches, and once we are happy that the buyer’s funding is in place, we agree on a moving date (making sure this is convenient for you)
  4. We ask you to sign the contract and Transfer Deed. If you have a mortgage on your property, we also get everything in place to enable you to pay this off
  5. We exchange contracts with the buyer’s solicitor
  6. On the completion date, once you have received the money, we ensure the property is signed over to its new owners.

FAQs

With Optimal Solicitors, it’s a simple, six-step process:

  1. Our team gathers all the information needed to prepare the contract paperwork.
  2. We then send this to the buyer and handle any queries from them.
  3. Once the buyer’s solicitor performs the required searches and confirms their funding, we’ll agree on a suitable moving date.
  4. Next, you’ll sign the contract and transfer deed. If you have a mortgage on your property, we’ll make sure everything is in place so you can pay this off.
  5. We’ll exchange contracts with the buyer’s solicitor.
  6. When it’s the date for completion and you’ve received the money due, we’ll transfer ownership over to the buyer.

This will depend on your specific home and situation. It could include:

  • Proof of your identity and address
  • Property title deeds
  • Shared freehold documentation
  • Energy Performance Certificate (EPC)
  • Fittings and content form (TA10)
  • Property information form (TA6)
  • Mortgage details
  • Acceptance of offer
There will be a fixed legal fee based on the property value, and you may also have to pay for local conveyancing searches. Here at Optimal Solicitors, we make sure that legal advice on selling your home is transparent and affordable – you can get an estimated quote through our conveyancing calculator, and we’ll confirm costs in our free initial consultation.
Usually it’s about 8-12 weeks. It depends on a few different factors though – such as if you’re in a chain, if you’re a first-time buyer, and if there are any complications around selling.
