What Is An Energy Performance Certificate?
An EPC (Energy Performance Certificate) measures the energy efficiency of a property using a scale of A-G and is valid for 10 years. It is a legal requirement to complete an EPC before selling a property.
Should I Be Present For Viewings?
We accompany all viewings so you certainly don't need to around for viewings, in fact, prospective buyers generally feel more relaxed when the owners aren't present.
Will Viewings Continue Once I Accept An Offer?
This depends on what you agree with the prospective purchaser at the point of accepting their offer. Normally we advise to withdraw the property from the market for a few weeks, as a show of good will and to allow the purchaser time to get themselves in a position to exchange contracts.
Do We Have To Pay Stamp Duty?
Unless you are also buying a property, no you don't! It is the purchaser that pays stamp duty, not the seller.
Will I Have To Pay Capital Gains?
If you are selling a property that is your main home, you won't have to pay tax on it as long as you satisfy certain conditions. However, if you are selling a property that is not your main home, it is likely you may have to pay Capital Gains Tax.
Where Are My Title Deeds?
Your Title Deeds are proof of ownership of your property. They will be held by your bank or building society if you have a mortgage and your solicitor will obtain the deeds and let the buyer's solicitor have a copy.
When Do I Have To Move Out?
On exchange a mutually agreed completion date is set, this is the date you will have to move out by.
