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.
If you want to have a go at something complicated then it's prudent to seek expert advice, or to get an expert to complete the work on your behalf. making the sale of or purchasing property in Kelso is no exception to this rule. Some property transactions can be trouble-free, but many others are not.

Weed the garden - One of the first things a potential buyer will see when they arrive at your property is the garden. If the garden is scruffy then it will be a bad start, and make the wrong first impression. Pick up litter, cut the lawn and pull / kill any weeds that are growing in or around the path or patio areas. Consider hiring a pressure washer to clean up your path if it's looking really grubby.
Marketing Your Home Through an Estate Agent - Even though you may have thought you'd selected the best estate agent in the town of Kelso, they may have become complacent by relying on their reputation. Always satisfy yourself that they are doing the best job for YOU. Never mind their other clients - it's your home that needs the effort behind it to market and sell it as effectively as possible.
Find a good conveyancing solicitor for Kelso conveyancing - If you're selling or buying property in Kelso then you're going to need a good solicitor to do your conveyancing. The solicitor doesn't need to be local to Kelso to do your conveyancing. In-fact, you'll get a much better deal by using a solicitor that is geared up to deal with large volumes, rather than using someone local. Kelso conveyancing doesn't need to cost the earth!
Spend Up To 1% - It is often advised that a seller should consider spending up to 1% of the sale value of the property on re-decoration, D.I.Y. and / or touching-up to achieve the best price. You should discuss this with a local Kelso specialist adviser or Kelso estate agent. A good Kelso estate agent may be able to point you in the right direction.

Food For Thought
When will I have to pay money out?
As a seller, you will have to pay for a Home Information Pack before marketing can begin. Once you have secured a sale, your Kelso solicitor may ask for some money up front when their work begins. The balance of the money from the sale will come to you on the day of completion. The solicitor will take their fee out at this stage, as will the Kelso Estate Agent. As a buyer, your solicitor may ask for some money up front when their work begins. On Exchange of Contracts, you will be asked by your solicitor to provide 5% or 10% of the purchase price. On the day of completion, your mortgage money will come in to your solicitor who will pass it on to the seller.
How long does the whole legal procedure take ?
This is one of our most regularly made queries and sadly, there is no easy answer because it depends on many different factors. The most straightforward kind of house sale is that of an non-dwelled property to a cash buyer. This would probably take about six weeks to conclude (from the time of instruction to when the property legally finally becomes the new owner's property). If the buyer needs a property loan, this could well add an additional number of weeks to the time-frame. If the seller is additionally acquiring a property, this could add another few weeks and perhaps even more delay if there is a larger chain of related sales. Further hold-ups could result from mislaid paperwork, slow Kelso conveyancers and slow buyers and sellers. A typical completion timeframe is roughly 10-14 weeks.
