Should I use a Colchester solicitor for my conveyancing?

There's no real need to use a solicitor located in Colchester to do your conveyancing. Your whole case can be managed efficiently by post, email and telephone.

Why use a Colchester Estate Agent?

There is a recent trend of Colchester home-owners trying to sell their own properties. Many websites now offer services to assist with this, but at, we still believe there is great value in using the services of a good local estate agent to market and sell your property.

Here are some points to consider when deciding whether to find an estate agent to help you market and sell or let your property.

For Guidance

The property buying and selling process is a complex one and can be very daunting, especially for first time sellers. Your estate agent will be able to guide you through the process of selling your home - and explain all of the steps. Some estate agents even have an Independent Financial Adviser in-branch who can help you with any financial queries you may have. They can also refer you to a solicitor - but we recommend getting a quote with us.

Achieve The Best Value for your Property

Experienced Estate agents in Colchester will understand the Colchester house market place, and should assist you with achieving the best selling price for your home.

Good Local Knowledge

An estate agent or letting agent in Colchester is very likely to have good local knowledge, and thus be an effective marketer of your property.

In The Know

A good Colchester estate agent will already have a shortlist of potential buyers (applicants) on their books, who may immediately want to view your property. This could result in a quick sale.

Selling Tips

Pet ProblemsPet Problems - If you own pets, then consider re-housing them while your try to sell your home. At the very least, keep them out of sight during viewings, and make sure that you have removed as much trace of them as possible. Cat litter trays, bowls of pet food, pet hairs, stains on carpets and scratched up walls or furniture can be off-putting. There is also the issue of allergies to consider. Many people are allergic to pet hairs and dust. A home that sets off a reaction may put off otherwise keen Colchester viewers. Consider calling in a local Colchester cleaning specialist to revive carpets.

Do Simple JobsDo Simple Jobs - Are you trying to sell property in Colchester? If so, you may want to take a good, objective look around. How many small, simple jobs are there that you haven't bothered getting around to doing? The problem is that we become blind to the small flaws after a while (apart from the ones that annoy us), whereas an observant newcomer to your home will spot them straight away. We're talking about curling wall-paper, or borders just need sticking down; Marks on walls, that need wiping off; Dead flies or dust on a lamp-shade; Dirty windows; Old screw-holes in walls that need filling and touching up. Now is the time to put a day aside to do these little jobs, and help achieve the best price for you property.

Gloss WorkGloss Work - Tired looking Gloss Work (such as doors, door frames and skirting boards) can make a property look shabby. Try to bring it all back to a shine with a damp cloth.

Make some coffeeMake some coffee - Most people love the smell of brewing coffee, even if they don't like to drink it. Consider putting on some fresh coffee just before a viewing, it's sure to create a welcoming odour for those Colchester viewers!

Food For Thought

What does "Completion" mean?
This is when the buyer becomes the legal owner of the property and can move in. As early as possible on the agreed day, the buyer's solicitor will send the balance of the purchase money to the seller's solicitor. The seller's solicitor will notify the estate agent and the seller when the transaction is complete. Only then should the keys be released to the purchaser. This normally takes place around noon but could be as late as 5pm.
Don't Overvalue Your House
Overvaluing a house is a recognized trick that some Colchester estate agents will use in order to make an impression you to obtain your listing order. Therefore, do not fall into the snare of just choosing the Colchester estate agent with the highest estimation for the reason that an high-priced house will be inclined to draw the incorrect breed of buyers to your Colchester home and the right buyers may never get to see it. This practice can result in the house remaining stationary on the Colchester housing marketplace. This can furthermore lead to the house having to be subsequently reduced decreasing below its true market worth. The issue of obtaining a truthful valuation is therefore principal to the selling process. It is critical that you appoint a Colchester estate agent who not only has a track record of winning sales in Colchester but also has a comprehensive working know-how of current buyer activity and who can understand and communicate existing market trends to your benefit.

All queries were responded to quickly and efficiently. I would recommend this firm.. Mortgage Broker, CO3. Rating: rating: 5 stars November, 2013

Beaumont Legal

Daniel at Beaumont Legal on the whole managed my case fine. Communication was poor at times and I didn't feel like there was a lot of advice or guidance forthcoming. However, the quality of the information pack and the fee level mean that overall they were decent value for money.. Client, CO7. Rating: rating: 5 stars September, 2013

Ross Coates Solicitors

Josie Quinn was absolutely fantastic she never once hurried me off the phone even when I was probably waffling. She showed a personal intrest in our case, was very proffesionall at all times and quick to sort any discrepancies. She helped make what could have been a very stressful move into something quite enjoyable. I also liked the way I didnt have to wade my way through receptionists to speak to her. Unlike some other organizations were they say hang on a mo whilst I check if their free. she and her colleagues at the kesgrave branch made me feel like nothing was to much trouble , well done girls! Just a little note one unamed representative at the Ipswich branch could learn alot from the staff at kesgrave. As my experience with her was far from good bordering on dam right rude. Could do with a training session in dealing with the public sensitively!. Client, CO7. Rating: rating: 5 stars April, 2011
