Selling Your House In Glasgow, Scotland

Our conveyancing solicitors will be involved in giving you advice and guidance at every stage of the process, working closely with you so that we can ensure you fully benefit from our knowledge and expertise in this area of law. The prospect of selling your home can seem like a daunting and complicated process, however, we will work closely with you to ensure you have the best possible advice along the way.

As a seller, it is your responsibility to make a Home Report available to the buyer. The Home Report is made up a number of documents dealing with different aspects of your property including the value, the condition of the property, and the energy efficiency rating. Read more about home reports here.

You will then need to market your property. Marketing your property can be done in three ways: either by marketing the property yourself or via a private service or by instructing an estate agent. If you do not have an agent instructed we can assist you in choosing the correct one for your needs.

Considering Purchase Offers on Your Home

When you have agreed on a price and started advertising, the next step will be the consideration of any offers. If there is interest in your house from more than one person, you may want to consider fixing a closing date for offers.

Accepting an Offer on Your Home

An offer to purchase your property will include, on top of the price, a series of conditions such as the date of entry or any repairs to be made before purchase. There may also be a request to retain some of the white goods or furniture within the offer process. By law, this process must be undertaken by a conveyancing solicitor, and it would be to your benefit to instruct an experienced conveyancing solicitor, with an in-depth knowledge of the local property market to negotiate on your behalf.

Concluding Missives on Your Home

The buyer and seller’s conveyancing solicitors then must negotiate the terms of the contract of sale of your property. This contract is known as ‘the Missives’ a term that you may already have heard of. The solicitors then create a document known as a ‘disposition’. This is the document, once signed by the Seller of property, is the deed that transfers ownership to the Purchaser. Your Solicitor delivers this to the buyer as well as the keys of the property, after which the sale will be complete.

If you had a mortgage on your property which has not been paid off, you would need to arrange for this to be paid before the sale is completed. The Sellers conveyancing solicitor is required to deal with this on the Sellers behalf.
