How to sell a house in Scotland

Only your solicitor can handle all aspects of a property sale. Contact one of our conveyancing solicitors for an initial free introductory appointment.

This is a brief summary of the selling process which we will follow on your behalf:

  1. First steps
    After explaining our terms and conditions of business and providing a detailed written quotation of fees and outlays, we arrange for an evaluation of your house to establish a realistic selling price in the current market.
  2. Preparation of sales details
    We will arrange a visit to your house by the Property Manager to prepare sales details.
  3. Title deeds
    We obtain the title deeds to your house from your lender.
  4. Warrants, letters, guarantees and planning permissions
    We check availability of any relevant Building Warrants, Letters of Comfort, Guarantees and Planning Permissions.
  5. The sales process
    We advise on closing dates, offers, dates of entry and negotiate on your behalf with the buyers solicitors until the missives have been concluded.
  6. Searches
    We will obtain property enquiry certificates, property searches together with coal mining reports if appropriate.
  7. Conclusion of the sale
    Finally, we bring sale to a conclusion, hand over the keys and repay the existing loan.
