Do this at the start of the process; don’t wait. Ask friends and family for recommendations. Get three quotes and check fee proposals thoroughly.
Go with a solicitor who communicates via a secure client portal. There have been a few cases where scammers have hacked into emails and used the information they glean from sales correspondence for fraudulent purposes.
You’ll need personal identification, such as a passport or driving licence, along with proof of address, such as bills or bank statements.
Along with locating the title deeds, you’ll need all documentation relating to changes you’ve made to the property under your ownership, such as:
- Planning permissions and building approvals
- Gas safety checks
- Energy performance certificates
- FENSA certificates if you’ve replaced the windows and warranties for things like damp-proofing
If the buyer’s solicitor raises any queries about the property, respond promptly. When one party goes quiet during the process, it can ramp up everyone’s stress levels.
