Should I use a Edinburgh solicitor for my conveyancing?
There's no real need to use a solicitor located in Edinburgh to do your conveyancing. Your whole case can be managed efficiently by post, email and telephone.
Why use a Edinburgh Estate Agent?
There is a recent trend of Edinburgh home-owners trying to sell their own properties. Many websites now offer services to assist with this, but at AgentQuote.co.uk, 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.
Because we are all proud of our homes
Property viewers may well be an unkind bunch, stalking all over the house like royalty, offering unkind comments and pulling unhappy facial expressions. Even perhaps the best of homes are in for criticism, just for the reason that one person's like is another person's dislike. So it's perhaps for the better if you let a Edinburgh estate agent show property viewers about your house - and leave them to feed back to you any worthwhile comments. Nobody likes to have their home picked on by visitors.
Edinburgh estate agents have many local industry connections. They may be able to recommend a good local solicitor, mortgage broker, insurance broker or financial adviser in Edinburgh.
Seek Out Good Advice
A Edinburgh property agent should be able to answer any queries you may have in relation to the buying or sales processes.
You local Edinburgh Estate Agents will always be available, by telephone or email, to deal with enquiries about your property. If you try to DIY your house sale then you are likely to miss may opportunities because you are unlikely to be available to field enquiries.

Neutralise Nasty Odours - If you're trying to sell your Edinburgh property, then perhaps it's time to ask a good friend the question "does my house smell". If you live with unpleasant odours, then you may no longer notice them. Get the blunt opinion of a friend. If there's a problem, don't worry... there are plenty of products on the market to remove nasty smells, rather than cover them up.
Do you have dirty carpets? - If you have dirty carpets in your Edinburgh property then it could really put off potential buyers and reduce your selling price. It's well worth calling in a local carpet cleaning firm to give them a good cleaning. They normally come to your home with a van and very long hoses and thoroughly steam and/or water clean your carpets - giving them a new lease of life. The van normally houses a powerful vacuum for a very thorough clean.
Rent Some Storage - If your house is very cluttered, then you may want to consider renting a storage unit in Edinburgh. Removing large, unnecessary articles of furniture and other clutter will give the appearance of bigger rooms. Viewers like to see a reasonably blank canvas, that they can really imagine making their own. The disadvantages are the weekly costs of storage, and the double-handling of the furniture, that you will now have to move twice.
Molehills And Ants Nests - If your garden suffers from Mole Hills or ants nests, then take appropriate action to eliminate these pests (humanely, of course). These garden pests could be off-putting to Edinburgh property buyers.

Food For Thought
It is important to know the extent of service an estate agent in Edinburgh will provide to you in respect of viewings to suit your requirements and convenience.
Some estate agents in Edinburgh do not include accompanied viewings in their service so it’s important to establish whether an estate agent will accompany all viewings and what arrangements they make for evenings and weekends.
Apart from the obvious security issues associated with an unaccompanied viewing, it is only when agents accompany buyers around a property that they can they probe, listen and understand what the buyer is really looking for. Estate agents who have developed a good understanding of their buyers’ preferences are less likely to direct unsuitable viewers to your property.
How much time does the whole legal procedure take ?
This is one of our most frequently asked questions and sadly, there is no easy answer as it depends on so many factors. The most straightforward kind of house sale is that of an empty property to a purchaser paying with cash. This kind of transaction would probably take around six weeks to conclude (from the time of instruction to when the property legally is transferred). If the buyer requires a mortgage, this may add an additional number of weeks to the process. If the seller is also acquiring a property, this could add an additional few weeks and maybe even more time if there is a larger chain of connected sales. Even more delays could result from mislaid paperwork, slow Edinburgh solicitors and slow buyers and sellers. An average completion timeframe is about 10 to 14 weeks.
