When you're thinking about moving home it's important to take some time to prepare your property in readiness for marketing. Completing the little jobs such as tidying the front garden or repainting the front door maybe obvious as these actions will directly help in finding a buyer more quickly or in achieving a better price. However, sales can and often do become frustrated by delays during the legal process caused by lost or mislaid documents.

Gathering together the various warranties or other legal documents required can take time and therefore at Goadsby we recommend sellers to instruct their legal representatives early with a view to them becoming "Legally Prepared". This simple action can enable any issues to be resolved early and will greatly assist in reducing the chance of encountering delays or disappointment later within the legal process.

Goadsby's panel conveyancers are ideally placed to assist in this regard and aim to ensure your move is as quick, straightforward and stress-free as it can be. They will offer a clear independent professional service which is made transparent through an easily accessed online tracking service that not only allows clients to view what is happening but also upload documents 24 hours a day from their mobile phone or computer.

Whether clients wish to use the Internet, email, telephone or have a post based service, legal fees are charged upon a No sale - No legal fee basis. So if your move doesn't go ahead you won't have any legal fees to pay!
