Contact us when you have accepted an offer on your home. We will send you an engagement letter and request two forms of identification for each named seller. We will also send you a Property Information Form (PIF), which is a questionnaire about your home and a Fittings and Contents Form (F&C), both of which you will need to complete.
We will also write to your buyer's solicitors to confirm that we are acting on your behalf.
We contact the buyer's solicitors to exchange contracts, confirming that both you and the buyer have signed and dated the contract.
At this stage, you and the buyer are legally bound to the completion date.
Signed contracts are then exchanged by post and the buyer's deposit cheque is received from their solicitors, usually the next day.
We will deal with all the post-completion formalities like forwarding the original deeds and documents relating to the property to your buyer's solicitors.
We will also send discharge documentation to your lender (if any) and forward the estate agents their commission, if this is owed. BHW Residential take away the stress of selling your home.
