Have you instructed a Solicitor?
You will need to instruct a solicitor to deal with the conveyancing of your property this should be done at the same time you instruct your Estate Agency to market your property.
Codys are now offering you the chance to monitor the progress of your sale on our website free of charge. Further more we have organised our panel of solicitors, Law Firms Services (LFS), to send out all the paper work needed to progress a sale before a sale is actually achieved! This means that when you have received a suitable offer, your solicitor can send the completed Pre-sale pack to the purchasers solicitor saving possibly two weeks of time.
The benefits of the Pre-Sale pack & our No Sale – No Fee conveyancing package
By collating the elements of the legal pack before a buyer is found we will be able to speed up the transaction for you.
LFS will place the pack in the hands of one of their panel law firms (most likely, Lockings / HJD) and they will be ready to despatch the documentation with a draft contract to your prospective purchaser immediately.
The pre-sale pack will include:-
- Client questionnaire
- Sellers Property Information Form
- Fixtures, fittings & contents list
- Copy of the HMLR Register for the property
Hassle free and Peace of mind
By getting the documentation to the conveyancer quickly they will be able to check any problems out before a buyer is found ensuring a smooth transaction. By getting the information out to your purchaser quickly it will help to cement the sale at an early stage.
By using one of LFS’s panel firms you will not be charged for abortive work done by them in the event that the sale does not meet exchange of contracts, as they all operate under a strict no sale – no fee policy. If your sale falls through and does not meet exchange of contracts you will not be charged a penny of the conveyancing legal fee by the law firm. You will only have to pay for any third party costs already incurred on your behalf such as search fees.
With LFS's unique case tracking system, you will be able to check the progress of your sale or purchase at any time of the day or night, as well as request text message updates when key milestones are met.
Make your property stand out
In a competitive market, your house will appeal more to a serious buyer if there is a pre-sale pack prepared and a conveyancer instructed as they will see you are one step ahead of other sellers.
