Getting your legal documents in order early is essential when selling your property. Selling a property can be a daunting task, but with proper preparation, it can be a smooth and successful process. One crucial aspect that can often be overlooked is getting your legal documents in order early. This step can significantly speed up the sale and eliminate potential delays further down the line.
As an estate agent, I have seen firsthand the importance of having all necessary legal documents ready before putting a property on the market. Once you have received a valuation and are ready to start the sales process, the first step is to get in touch with a solicitor. Your solicitor will then be able to request the title deeds and supporting documentation for your home.
If you still have a mortgage on the property, the title deeds are usually held with your bank. However, if you do not have a mortgage, your solicitor will draft contracts for sale so that they are ready to issue as soon as the property is sale-agreed. Completing this step early can help to eliminate potential delays further down the line.
It’s essential to note that there are several documents that you need when selling your property, including proof of identity, planning documentation, PPS number, marital status, title maps, NPPR certificate, BER cert, and title deeds. The sooner you and your solicitor can gather this important information, the less likely a delay will occur.
Having all necessary legal documents ready early on can also help to give potential buyers confidence in the sale. It shows that you are organized and have taken the necessary steps to ensure a smooth and efficient transaction.
In conclusion, getting your legal documents in order early is a crucial step when selling your property. It can significantly speed up the sale and eliminate potential delays further down the line. By working with your solicitor to gather all necessary information, you can ensure a smooth and successful transaction.
