Sales is a stressful experience to any landlord in London/ UK. we at Dee Estates take out that stress so that you should be doing what you suppose to do. Here are the guidelines.
1- Property Valuation
We at Dee Estates can offer you a free, no obligation realistic and accurate appraisal of the current market value of your house. Valuation is based on market trends, properties sold and recent transactions nearby, changes in the market values to similar properties of that type in the local area, Value Trends, Value Ranges, Average Value, the various characteristics of the property in question and those around it, current asking prices for specific properties and others in the local area, the size of the property in question relative to those around it, the current values of comparable properties
2- Landlord’s Instructions
Once you are satisfied with the valuation, We will then proceed to prepare full sales details of your property. We make sure that the sales details highlight the most important aspects of your property and that your house is shown to its best possible advantage.
We use different Marketing tools, including Web Portals, Print media ( NewsPapers and Magazines), Social Marketing (Face Book, You Tube, Tweeter etc). In addition we have our own huge data base of potential investors looking for properties. Further we use our own strong net work of 100+ Estates agents to capitalize optimum sales in minimum time. E-mail marketing is use to 500,000+ Landlord’s and prospect buyers. Once interests are shown, appointments to view your property will be made by us and accompanied viewings are arrange to show around your property to prospective buyers.
We do liaise and interact with the buyer, the legal representatives, valuers and mortgage lenders in order to ensure that your sale is progressed as quickly and smoothly as possible.
4- Sale Agreed
Once a sale has been agreed you will need to instruct a solicitor to represent you. If require, we will be glad to propose local firms with whom we have good working relationship.
The solicitors on either side will confirm their instructions and the buyer will instruct a valuer to conduct a valuation of the property. The ‘agreed sale’ is subject to the contract and any survey. At this stage, you should provide your solicitor with a list of Fixtures and Fittings which will be negotiated separately between the solicitors and become part of the final contract. The seller’s solicitor will request the Title Deeds from the lender (if appropriate) or from yourself as the seller.
The seller’s solicitor draws up the Draft Contract which sets out the terms of the sale and sends it to the buyer’s solicitor together with all relevant documents. Any enquiries will then be raised, the Title Deeds and Lease (if applicable) will be checked and Local Searches carried out.
5- Exchange of contracts
When the mortgage offer has been received and all funds are cleared with the buyer’s solicitor, a convenient date for both parties can be agreed upon for the exchange of contracts.
After the exchange’ depending upon the timetable of the buyer and seller, the legal completion and the actual house move in normally takes place between 14 to 28 days.
