First contact

The moment we receive your instructions to act we will write to you introduce you to our firm, the legal assistant personally dealing with your sale and to confirm our costs and the likely disbursements. We will also request various details and documents including some personal identification, the title deeds (or their whereabouts), details of any lender(s) or other parties who may have an interest over the property and whether you have any special requirements (eg. a preferred moving date).

We will also ask you to complete a couple of forms, one being a Seller's Property Information Form (SPIF) and the other being a Fixtures Fittings and Contents Form (F&F). The SPIF is a simple "tick" questionnaire whereby you will be asked to answer a series of questions relating to the property. The F&F is a form which allows you to confirm those items which are included and/or excluded from the sale.

If the property is Leasehold then you will also be asked to complete a Seller's Leasehold Information Form and supply details of the Lease, Landlord and any Management Company.

We will be pleased to help you in any property matters.
