With the average house sale taking around 18 weeks and the Stamp Duty Holiday only in place until 31st March, time is of the essence to take advantage of this government initiative and the opportunity it brings to save an average of £2,000.
By choosing to use the Move Ready service provided by local property law firm Attwells, one local vendor has easily beaten the 2121 deadline and completed the sale of their property in just over six weeks.
“Selling a home can take up to 140 days. This is the equivalent of five months from agreeing on the price to completion. Of course, this does not take into consideration the time spent waiting for an offer or any time lost due to a sale falling through,” founder Nick Atwell said.
To help speed up the conveyancing process Attwells Solicitors introduced its Move Ready service earlier this year.
“The free service, for those who instruct Attwells to undertake their conveyancing, effectively allows homeowners to start the conveyancing process early before their house is even on the market,” Mr Atwell explained. “With no legal fees due until the completion, there is also no financial risk or penalty if the sale is delayed.”
“I’m glad to say my house sale went smoothly, with very little delay,” the client confirmed. “I was very pleased that once contracts were issued, it took only six weeks until the exchange. Fortunately, neither the buyer or myself were in a chain, but had that not been the case reducing delays would have been even more essential.”
“I would recommend the package to speed up the whole process.”
Typically property sales fall through due to a lack of information but the benefits to Move Ready are that many of the legal requirements will be completed prior to an offer being made, this includes ownership documents, planning and building regulation paperwork plus any guarantees in addition to a full set searches being provided.
