Sell­ing a prop­er­ty can be stress­ful but if you are aware of the process & know what is required of you at dif­fer­ent stages, it can be easy also.

Once you have agreed a sale you will need to instruct a Solic­i­tor. Unlike pur­chas­es, your lender won’t usu­al­ly mind who acts & you may choose who you like. It is always good research & ask friends for recommendations.

At the same time, it is worth search­ing for any doc­u­men­ta­tion you received when you bought the prop­er­ty, as well as any doc­u­men­ta­tion for works car­ried out dur­ing your ownership.


Your Solic­i­tor will for­ward you paper­work to com­plete which will include the Pro­to­col Forms. The Prop­er­ty Infor­ma­tion Form (TA6) will ask gen­er­al ques­tions about the prop­er­ty includ­ing the afore­men­tioned works you may have car­ried out. The Fix­tures & Fit­tings Form (TA10) will ask you to con­sid­er what you intend to take or leave at the prop­er­ty. It is impor­tant that you com­plete these forms quick­ly because these form part of the Contract.

Your Solic­i­tor will then issue the Con­tract along with sup­port­ing doc­u­men­ta­tion. The buyer’s Solic­i­tor will order search­es based on the paper­work & will in turn raise legal enquiries (ques­tions).


Your Solic­i­tor will attempt to answer these enquiries but they may need your input also. Once these have been answered & your buy­er is ready to pro­ceed, you are ready to exchange con­tracts & set the com­ple­tion date.
