UPS will promote your property by using a wide range of media. We will produce full colour brochures of your property which will be available in our office and are downloadable from our website.
Your property will be listed on our website which includes an in-depth description and quality interior/exterior photography.
We will provide you with a distinctive For Sale board. UPS will also send out email alerts to our database of suitable buyers with details of your property.
An EPC is a compulsory document needed by anyone who is selling or renting a property.
The EPC is a report compiled by an assessor who will visit your property and look at various items to assess how energy efficient your property is. These items include the Heating Boiler, Energy Efficient light bulbs, loft insulation, etc.
This legislation is part of EU laws introduced to give consumers information about the energy efficiency of a home they are considering buying. At UPS we will recommend an accredited energy assessor who will produce an EPC for you.
Make sure your home looks its best for any viewings and photographs. It is important for us to capture good quality internal and external photographs of your property for use in our brochures and online.
Create a good impression by tidying any mess and clearing unwanted clutter to maximise space. If you want to redecorate go for neutral tones which will appeal to a wider audience.
You need to get the house in the best condition you can given the constraints of time and money. Any small DIY tasks that can be done without too much fuss should be first on your list.
The idea is to create a sense of the house having the potential to become someone else's home.
You need to appoint a solicitor or conveyancer who will do the legal work involved in the sale.
Once you have received an offer, be prepared to negotiate. UPS will check to ensure that the buyer is in a position to proceed before you decide whether to accept the offer.
If you decide to accept the offer we will prepare a Memorandum of Sale, notify all parties involved of the agreed price and ask you to confirm details for your solicitor.
Your solicitor will then prepare a draft contract and forwards it to the buyer's solicitor who will then carry out preliminary enquiries. You will also be able to arrange dates for a property survey, exchange of contracts and completion.
This is when you become legally committed to the sale. Contracts will be exchanged when all the requirements have been confirmed and agreed and the buyer's solicitor will pay the deposit to your solicitor when the contract has been signed by both parties.
Then a completion date can be confirmed.
A completion date is usually agreed between the two parties prior to exchanging contracts.
Set up your post to be redirected a few weeks before you move with the Royal Mail - a good precaution against identity theft.
We would also recommend taking metre readings for gas, electric and leave copies in the property along with helpful numbers for the purchaser as well as any warranties/guarantees for any appliances etc.
At completion the remaining purchase amount is paid and your solicitor will be in touch.
You will leave the keys in our office and once we receive authorisation from their solicitor and confirmation that the money has exchanged we will release the keys of your property to the buyer.
We deal with properties in all price ranges and are sure we can help you to find your dream home.
