You now need to appoint a Solicitor to take control of the Conveyancing.
Ideally you want a solicitor who is experienced in Conveyancing and one that can get the sale completed in a timely manner.
Once you have appointed a Solicitor, the first thing that they will do is to review the title document of your property and to begin preparations for the contracts. In many cases, if you have a mortgage on the property you are selling, the title deeds will be with the bank. You will have to fill out forms to get the title released to your solicitor. It is important to find out where your deeds are and to get them to your solicitor as soon as possible, it may take some time so do this when you have decided to sell.
During the marketing stage check in with your Solicitor to see how the contracts for sale are getting on. Ideally you want to be in a position that contracts are sent out as soon as the property is sale agreed.
Tip: Make sure that you have all documentation regarding your property ready and available for the solicitor. For example; if you have extended the property and planning permission was required then you will need to provide proof of this. Or, if you are selling an apartment the purchasers solicitor may require information from the management company so make sure you can easily obtain this to reduce any delays at this stage.
