Tidying up

Having a house that looks messy and untidy will take more time to sell. Moreover, a buyer can't see the true potential of the property if it is cluttered. Many buyers have confirmed that a messy house puts them off. To increase the chances of selling your house, tidy up your house before listing it for sale.

Professional property photography

If you're selling your home in the UK, it's important to get professional property photography for your listing. A professionally shot photo will appeal to your target audience and grab their attention. This will increase your home's appeal to potential buyers, sell it faster, and save you time, hassle, and money. A professional photographer knows the property market inside out and can take great pictures that will show off your property's best features.

Legal representative

When selling your home in the UK, you will probably have to use the services of a legal representative. In most cases, your representative will pay off your mortgage and any other secured debts, as well as stamp duty and estate agent fees. They will also pay for any other services and fees you may have agreed to. However, you should make sure to check with them before hand to make sure there are no hidden fees or charges.

Also, make sure your legal representative has signed up to a redress scheme. Then, whenever you have any concerns about your service, you should raise them through the company's complaints procedure. If you are not satisfied with their services, you can also escalate the issue to the Financial Services Ombudsman.

Exchange of contracts

In the UK, an exchange of contracts occurs when you sell your house. The buyer and seller must sign the contracts. The solicitors of both parties should check that both have signed the same contract. The sale then proceeds with the exchange of contracts. The solicitors of the buyer and seller exchange the contracts on the day of completion. After exchange, the buyer and seller register the sale with HM Land Registry.

Fixtures and fittings

You must list the fixtures and fittings when you sell your home. You should include all the items that you are going to keep in the house in your inventory, unless you intend to use them as a bargaining tool. It is also a good idea to include these items in the selling price. If you are not sure about the status of certain items, it is best to include them in the inventory so that you can avoid any complications during the selling process.
