Sales Progression Department
A dedicated sales progression team It is an unfortunate fact that one in four sales in the UK fail to complete. But we’ve taken action to reduce that figure. We’ve introduced a trained and dedicated Move Manager for each of our branches. Their commitment is to move the sale on to a quick conclusion. Experienced in both the legal process and customer service, these office-based managers offer one of the facets of our service which is most highly regarded by our clients.
Statistics show the innovation has managed to reduce the time a sale takes to progress from ‘under offer’ to a successful exchange of contracts, a tremendous benefit to our clients.
Useful and time saving pointers Instruct your solicitor early on so they can begin some of the procedures and prepare some of the documentation - it saves valuable time once a buyer has been found for your home. Not got a solicitor? We can appoint one to act for you.
Advise your solicitor of your mortgage account number and name of your mortgage lender so they can obtain the deeds in advance; this can save, literally, weeks at a later stage.
Complete the fixtures and fittings enquiry form provided and return it to your solicitor.
If the property is jointly owned, both parties need to agree to it being sold and that the price is acceptable. Your solicitor will need to know the details of any agreements that you have.
If the property you are selling is a flat or leasehold you will need to ensure that your ground rent and management service charges are up to date.
