Thinking of Selling? We have a range of property services for sellers of farms and residential properties

Selling your property need not be difficult. Follow these simple steps to get started.

Selling your home or property is not a decision to be taken lightly, especially if it has been in the family for a long time.

It’s a process that takes thought, preparation and hard work by all parties involved and should be considered carefully before going ahead. You might be thinking about selling because you are retiring, downsizing your home or reviewing your finances. Whatever the reason, it’s important to get independent advice from an expert.

Here are some simple steps that are key to all sales.

Your first job should be to contact your Solicitor. We advise asking your Solicitor the following questions up front; it will simplify the process and save you time in the long run.

  • Is the legal title to the property in place?
  • Is there a mortgage on the property? If so, the title documents will have to be requested from the lending institution, which can take time.
  • Do you have a BER? This is a legal requirement for all residential and commercial sales.
  • If not be connected to mains sewage. Is the septic tank registered with the local authority?
  • Are all Local Property Tax (LPT) payments up to date?
  • You may need to prove that the property is your principle private residence.
  • Are the boundaries on the ground the same as the boundaries in the title deeds? Are all services within the boundaries?
  • Are there any right-of-way or legal disputes that need to be addressed before selling?
  • Are all planning permissions in place for buildings? They may well be exempt or pre-1963, but this needs to be confirmed.
  • Has notice been given to tenants or licensees occupying the property?

At this point, you can obtain a quote from your Solicitor on the cost of handling the sale.

Make sure that you understand what services are provided by your sales agent.

  • The best way to market and sell your property (private treaty, public auction or online)
  • The best time to sell your property
  • Your agent’s fee and advertising costs

When you are choosing an agent, we recommend looking for:

  • An agent with a proven track record in dealing with similar properties to yours
  • An agent that is professional and trusted, and who you feel will work well with you. This will make the whole process easier and more efficient, and result in the best outcome.

Do not fall into the trap of choosing the cheapest or the most expensive agent. Your choice should be governed by your own objectives and the confidence you have in the agent being able to achieve them, not by what you pay them. 

Trust your agent. They should be allowed to do their job as effectively as they can.
