Things to Remember When Selling a Property

  • EPC – It is a legal requirement for all properties to have an Energy Performance Certificate. Often, your Estate Agent can arrange this for you.
  • Documents and Certificates – Although it isn’t the end of the world if you don’t have the correct documents and certificates, it is important to pass any documentation that you do have to your solicitor. This may include any Title Deeds, Warranty’s and Certificates for any works that you have had done on the property. This can save valuable time and can also save you having to provide Indemnity Insurances to the buyers for the loss of such documents.

We also offer a Premium Package which offers further benefits to include a Fast Start Upgrade and a No Move No Fee guarantee. This package is tailor made to suit all of your needs and give you even more peace of mind.

Everyone I dealt with was professional, efficient, patient, and human! Mandy at reception fielding my (many) calls and Tania who calmly pointed out the intricacies of the process in terms I could understand.

I would particularly like to praise Leanne Salt who, apart from the occasional conversation with Tania, dealt with this sale

This has been a fraught process ( nothing to do with Poole Alcock I must stress) particularly with an uncommunicative and slow buyer’s solicitor causing what should have been a  straightforward sale to be drawn out and stressful but Leanne did all she could to progress it, even liaising with the estate agent when the the buyer’s solicitor was not forthcoming.

Without her being so proactive I really don’t know when, or even if, we would have completed.

With Leanne I felt that she was always fighting my corner and I felt I could to talk to her as a person.

If I were to sell another property I would certainly use Poole Alcock as long as Leanne handled it.

We recently bought a house on Taylor Wimpey and our solicitor was Kate Heath who expertises in new builds. Kate dealt with us in a professional manner, communication was second to none, great customer service and we felt comfortable and felt at ease whilst both our sale and purchase were going through. We feel the speed of the whole process was fast, considering we were selling and buying. Kate worked well with Taylor Wimpey to ensure we were in the house as planned before Christmas. We also used help to buy which was a smooth process, everything was dealt with ease by Kate and I would 100% recommend Poole Alcock to use when buying or selling a house. Everyone is so friendly, this is the second time I’ve bought a house with them now and each time was a breeze. Thank you Kate and team!
