Selling a house after lockdown: a conveyancing blog

  • Posted

As you will no doubt have seen via TV, social media and in the press the last 24 hours:

Estate agents’ offices can now open; viewings are permitted; show homes can open; removal companies and the other essential parts of the sales and letting process have all been re-started. Buyers and renters are now be able to complete purchases and view properties in person, while estate agents, conveyancers and removals firms can return to work while following social distancing guidelines.”

We are reaching out to estate agents to ask their sellers to contact us as soon as a property is marketed (as opposed to when an offer has been accepted) we will endeavour to take their instructions immediately. We will then carry out the normal ID and AML checks and obtain essential information and documentation whilst marketing continues. This could include getting copies of their title records and plan from the Land Registry, getting questionnaires completed and locating missing documents and papers which often take time to obtain.

Preparing a ‘sellers pack’ like this can not only take weeks off of normal transaction times. It also has the benefit reducing the number of abortive transactions.  We are calling it the Bold Move Process.
