Should I use a Sunderland solicitor for my conveyancing?

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

Why use a Sunderland Estate Agent?

There is a recent trend of Sunderland 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 questions you may have. They can also refer you to a solicitor - but we recommend getting a quote with us.

The Right Price

Of course, everyone wants to sell their Sunderland property for the biggest price possible, but this is not always the best way to achieve a quick sale. A good Sunderland estate agent will be able to guide you towards a price that strikes the right balance between being attractive to both you and any potential Sunderland purchasers.

Quality Marketing

A good Sunderland estate agent will be an expert at marketing your property. They will know how to advertise your property in all the right places. Ideally your Sunderland property needs as much exposure as possible, to maximise interest from potential buyers. Normally an agent will advertise your property on property portals, such as Rightmove, and in your local or Sunderland property post. Other forms of marketing include window cards, handouts, mail-shots and open-house days. Remember, the frequency and quality of the content of the advertising is just as important as where it appears.

Sunderland Estate Agents Are Natural Sales People

It requires a particular personality to be a good sales person. It requires charisma, a winsome manner, good character, and in some cases attractive looks. These are simply things that many of us find in short supply. Hopefully your local Sunderland real estate agent will be in possession the attributes of a top sales person, and win a sale faster for you and at a better price than you could achieve if you tried to sell your own property!

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 Sunderland viewers. Consider calling in a local Sunderland cleaning specialist to revive carpets.

Will selling a property in Sunderland need a Sunderland conveyancing solicitor?Will selling a property in Sunderland need a Sunderland conveyancing solicitor? - Will selling a property in Sunderland need Sunderland conveyancing solicitor? This is an excellent question. Many people in Sunderland may mistakenly think that they need a Sunderland solicitor to do their conveyancing. The reality is this, that your conveyancing solicitor does not need to be local. Some Sunderland solicitors choose only to deal with Sunderland property transactions, or other properties very nearby. Other conveyancers will choose to handle transactions from all over the UK. Their quality of service will in no way be less than a local solicitor. It may well be better, as they specialize in conveyancing. It is also likely that their prices will be more competitive.

Molehills And Ants NestsMolehills 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 Sunderland property buyers.

Have Realistic Expectations With Respect To Current Market ConditionsHave Realistic Expectations About The Market - Just like much of the rest of Great Britain, the property market in Sunderland has been stronger. You must be realistic with regards to the true asking price of your home if you are wanting a quick sale. Finding a buyer might be hard work, especially if you stretched too far on your property loan when you purchased your house. Think about having a chat about your circumstances with your Independent Financial Adviser, and with your property agent to agree a suitable asking price for your house.

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 Sunderland 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 Sunderland 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.
When choosing a property sales agency it is advantageous to pick an estate agent who additionally manages property to let. Letting agents have long term purchase-for-rental property investment clients indefinitely registered on their books. These investors purchase with regularity from that agent. They normally know that estate agent very well and they are far more prone to decide on purchases quickly and make solid offers to purchase. These investment buyers prefer to buy via that agent simply because it is simpler for them to rent their new investment quickly after buying it. Tenants additionally register to purchase property. Good quality letting agencies establish long-term working relationships with their rental clients and are in a good position to help them buy one of their own selling clients’ properties.
