Selling your home with Abel Estates.
Anyone can sell a house. It might sound strange coming from an estate agency, but it's true. An agent can suggest the highest price and the lowest fee, then cross their fingers. At Abel, we don't believe that our job is to just sell your property. Like we said, that's relatively simple. We see our role as delivering a premium price that would otherwise be unobtainable. We want our service to be
so good that we offer two very simple options for selling that we've called Abel Instant and Abel Assist.
ABEL INSTANT - THE SELF SELLING CHOICE
• Do you feel that you know the market?
• Are you confident that you can handle your own property sale?
• Do you have all the information you need?
Then our self-sell is your best choice, your property can be online in less than 48 hours once your information is verified. This will give you considerable savings with our upfront payment option and time saving electronic processes.

A simple guide to Conveyancing - Selling your property
1 - OFFER
OFFER - Once an offer has been made on your property, the Estate Agent will forward the memorandum of sale to your chosen solicitor. Within a couple of days of receiving the information, your solicitor will write to you with an initial client care letter.
2 - CONTRACT
CONTRACT - Once you return the completed forms, your solicitor will be able to issue the draft contract to the Buyer’s solicitors. Your solicitor will to do this within 1-2 weeks of receipt of the papers.
3 - searches
SEARCHES - Within 1-2 weeks the Buyer’s solicitor will raise enquiries, which your solicitor
will send to you for instructions. At the same time, you may also be sent the contract and
any other required documentation for signature. The Buyer’s solicitor should have applied for their searches at this point, which can take on average 2-3 weeks to be received.
Depending on the enquiries raised, it can take anywhere between 6-8 weeks for the
Buyer’s solicitor to be satisfied. The Buyer should within this time receive their mortgage offer (if required).
4 - PRE-EXCHANGE
PRE-EXCHANGE- Discuss completion dates with your solicitor, if not already done so. If there is a chain, it may take a little longer for all parties to be ready.
5 - EXCHANGE
EXCHANGE - Your solicitor will request a redemption statement from your mortgage
lender (if required). At this point, the timescale will be set by contract depending on when the completion date.
6 - your final
COMPLETION - On completion, the Buyer’s solicitor will arrange to send the completion funds to your solicitor first thing in the morning. Depending on who the Buyer’s solicitors bank with and how busy the banking system is that day, the money can arrive instantly or take an hour or so to be received. Once received, your solicitor will telephone you to
confirm that completion had happened. You should ensure the keys are with the Estate Agents. Normally, completion should take place by 2pm (this time can be change by the contract depending on the transaction).
This guide is based on a straightforward freehold transaction. Leasehold transactions will take longer as information is requested
from the Landlord/Management Company which can take anywhere between 3-4 weeks to be received.
