If the property is correctly marketed, presented well and hits a good targeted audience, a sale can take place anywhere between 4-12 weeks.
Portals such as Rightmove and On the Market are imperative as the majority of all buyers are now able to search within their own time and within the comfort of their own surroundings. There are also various magazines that can be used for a more targeted audience.
All houses are subject to an Energy Performance Certificate, this is a legal requirement when marketing a property. Charges for this are usually between £60 - £90 pounds + VAT.

Contracts can vary, a typical contract can be anything between 4-12 weeks. This timescale can vary depending on the marketing strategy using magazines and direct marketing.
Ensuring you have an up to date fixtures and fittings list as well as a property information form will help the process. Also, getting a competent solicitor on board is imperative.
On exchange of contracts both the buyer and the seller sign identical contracts. The buyer pays a deposit (typically 10%) at that time, but only when they are formally exchanged by the solicitors does the deal become legally binding. On completion the balance of the purchase price has to be paid and the keys are then released to the buyer.
Note: a competent solicitor is also crucial to a smooth purchase or sale. Total transparency on both sides enables a far more productive and efficient transaction process.
