How to Help Your Estate Agent to Sell Your Home

Moving home is exciting; however there is a lot of work that goes into this challenge, especially during a lockdown which can impact your move. On a positive note, viewings are still available helping you with the process of moving house.

In the meantime, there are many ways you can help your Estate Agent to sell your home.

Keep Organised

When selling your home, it’s always important to keep organised in case of any delays that may arise. Keep on top of all documentations regarding your home so you can present them quickly and efficiently whenever needed by your estate agent or solicitor.

This not only saves a lot of time, but it saves unnecessary stress also.  

Important Documents

Following on from the above point, it’s a great step to get ahead with any important documents at an early stage. Many forms require general information that you can fill in straight away, so it’s best to get on top of it early.

Some of the paperwork includes: fixtures and fittings forms, ID verification, and property information sheets.  Other documents you may need in the future include:

  • HM Land Registry title documents
  • gas checks completed by a Gas Safe registered engineer (or Corgi-registered engineer prior to 2009)
  • electrical checks – an Electrical Installation Condition Report (EICR) or a NAPIT or NICEIC certificate/report from a registered electrical competent person
  • FENSA or CERTAS certificates for windows
  • planning permission for any major work carried out
  • building regulation completion certificates and builder’s guarantee certificates for alterations or additions
  • subsidence guarantees/warranties
  • damp guarantees/warranties
  • party wall agreements (if relevant)
  • if a listed building, listed building consent for interior and exterior works
  • if your home is in a conservation area, conservation area consent for works
  • any title insurance policies you may have taken out to solve title defects

Keep Your Home Presentable

A presentable home is guaranteed to sell quicker as it’s more appealing to the viewer. Ensure to declutter your home at every opportunity, this simple task will make your rooms look bigger and allows viewers to envision themselves in their potential new home.
