6. Are there any additional marketing costs and if so, when are they paid?

The only additional marketing costs would be if you decided on any additional advertising, for example in The Scotsman and we will explain the additional costs which would be involved.

If you have a mortgage, your title deeds are usually held by the lender and we will deal with this for you. Otherwise, they may be held by another firm of solicitors and we will obtain these on your behalf.

11. When do I move out of my property?

A completion date will be agreed with the buyer and that is the date that the purchase price is paid in return for the keys and legal title being handed over. You need to move out of the property by then. Typically this will be within 8 weeks of an offer being made but that is up to the parties to decide.

 

12. What should I do to my property to prepare it for sale?

We will advise you on this when we visit your property and can also arrange for trades assistance or any house "dressing".

 

13. What happens if my property doesn't sell?

Thankfully it's rare for a property not to sell but we will guide you through each step and regularly discuss the best strategy to ensure a sale is achieved.
