Our experienced and professional consultants have intricate knowledge of your area and all aspects of property sales.
Through our 30+ years, we have built an excellent track record for selling high-end properties in the capital.
Before you sell your property, you’ll want to get a fairly accurate idea of how much it is worth. We are happy to give you a free market appraisal which will help you calculate how much money you will have available to spend on a new property.
If your property is leasehold, this is a good time to ensure that you have up to date copies of your lease and any management accounts.
It is also worthwhile undertaking a general spring clean touching up paint, decluttering areas that are full of personal items, cleaning the windows and mirrors and generally making your property look its best for prospective buyers.
We can arrange an EPC for your property. Depending on the size of your property, these usually cost between £60 and £180.
The other costs you will incur are our agency fees, solicitor fees, mortgage fees, removal costs and possible Capital Gains Tax if this is not your Principal Private Residence.
This will depend on the believed strength of the buyer's offer and is something that we will guide you on.
If the buyer has very good financial references, and they insist that the property is withdrawn from the market, then we may advise you to agree and no further viewings will take place.
Conversely, we will almost always advise you to leave a property on the market if the offer is form a weak buyer.
According to Hometrack, the average time to sell a property takes around 44 days from the date of listing a property to agreeing on a sale, down from around 50 days.
Typically, houses sell faster than flats, taking on average 42 days to sell compared to 62 days for flats.
Once an offer has been accepted, paperwork and legal processes will need to be worked through before the house sale is completed. The average time it takes to complete a house sale is between 4 and 6 months.
You are required by law to have an Energy Performance Certificate for your property before you sell it. Energy Performance Certificate costs are between £60 and £180.
The certificate grades properties according to how energy efficient they are (with A being the highest and G the lowest) and suggests ways in which to improve your rating together with associated costs.
No. It is always the buyer who pays stamp duty, not the seller.
