Selling a Property

At Williamsons, we understand that selling your home is more than just a transaction – it’s a major life event. That’s why we provide dedicated conveyancing services that ensure your sale progresses as smoothly as possible. Our skilled legal team is here to guide you from listing to completion.

Selling a Property

For those looking to sell quickly, an auction sale presents a viable option. This method ensures your property is marketed to potential buyers, who will then place bids on the auction date. To protect your interests, we help you set a reserve price, ensuring you don’t sell below your predetermined minimum. Upon the acceptance of a successful bid, the sale typically concludes 28 days later.

To prepare for this, a legal pack is essential. Our solicitors will craft this on your behalf, incorporating any special conditions you might need, including an agreement for the auction’s legal pack costs to be repaid upon a successful sale. We also manage searches and work closely with the auction company to ensure your property is well-represented leading up to the auction day.

The sale of a leasehold property involves additional steps, primarily concerning the Landlord and Management Company. Our role is to facilitate these communications for you. After reviewing the title deeds, we’ll reach out to obtain all necessary documents needed for a smooth sale. With Williamsons Solicitors, you’re supported every step of the way, guaranteeing that your leasehold property sale adheres to all legal requirements whilst striving for the best possible outcome.

Choosing to sell a shared ownership property introduces a unique set of criteria, especially if you do not own 100% of the property. In most cases, the property must first be offered back to the landlord. We guide you through this process, ensuring you comply with all contractual obligations and that the sale price reflects the market value of your share.

Should you own the entirety of the property, our services extend to facilitating an open market sale, providing advice and handling the review of your lease to ensure everything is in order for a smooth transaction.
