Conveyancing advice from Shrewsbury law firm on selling your house in Shrewsbury

Many people see the early months of the year as an opportunity to make a fresh start. Selling up and moving on can often be at the top of people's list and this is particularly the case now that the property market is starting to pick up.

Emma Alsop, a senior conveyancer with Shrewsbury law firm Lanyon Bowdler advises sellers to make sure their house is on the market at the correct price. She recommends “the best way to do this is to consult a number of estate agents for a valuation.  It is a good idea to research the average house prices in your area, as well as looking at what price other properties are currently on the market for.”

It is important to make sure your house is suitably prepared for viewings.  It should be clean and tidy, and you may need to do some basic maintenance such as touching up paintwork and gardening.  It should feel like the buyers can move straight in and not have to do anything.  It is useful if all planning permissions, building regulation consents and completion certificates are available too.

It is generally acknowledged that the moving process is an extremely stressful experience.  Finding the right solicitor is important as there is a lot of work which needs to be done and it can be a lengthy process. 

Head of the residential property department David Foden says “We understand the moving process can be an extremely stressful experience.  Our team of residential property lawyers are members of the Law Society’s Conveyancing Quality Scheme and are able to provide expert support in guiding clients through the complexities of all property transactions.”

Lanyon Bowdler is one of Shropshire’s largest law firms with an office in the heart of Hereford.  With 23 partners and in the region of 200 experienced staff, the firm is able to offer legal advice throughout both counties from local offices.
