From contracts to completion: Selling a residential property for clients

Write your awesome label here.

Law in a nutshell

The sale of property in England is often considered more “risky” than other jurisdictions because the parties are not legally bound to complete the transaction until the point of exchange. At this point all due diligence should have been carried out and completed and all of the work done by the seller’s conveyancer, except the final post completion tasks. The role of a seller’s conveyancer is to provide the sales pack, respond to enquiries raised by the buyer and their conveyancer and handle exchange and completion.

What's covered?

The legal steps involved in selling a residential property for a client, the process from start to finish as a guide for what to expect and the various parties involved in the transaction.
