Over 70% of our clients choose our ‘All in One’ service which combines your Energy Performance Certificate (EPC), estate agent and conveyancing fees. The main benefits of the service are convenience, ease of communication and no hidden charges.
Found a Buyer – What Happens Next?
It is well known that the house buying and selling process in England & Wales can be troublesome, stressful and long-winded. Apart from the ill-fated introduction of Home Information Packs there has been no impetus by Government or the industry to improve the system.
Fundamentally, our view is that the process can, and sometimes does work very well, however problems can occur as a result of poor communication, misinformation and the inability of professionals to work together.
At Vickery we are seeking to change this by offering our unique, ‘All in One’ service, bringing together two key service elements needed when selling your home – sales and conveyancing. Together with our wholly owned subsidiary firm of lawyers, Specialist Property Lawyers we aim to provide a personal, professional and efficient service to sell your home including legal fees. By offering this joined up service with no referral fees being paid you receive an uncompromised service that focuses entirely on you and your sale.
Q. How does this work?
When you instruct Vickery on an, ‘All in One’ basis, the legal fees for your sale will be included in our agency fee, only disbursements will be payable to SPL. As soon as you have instructed Vickery you will receive confirmation from SPL of the expected disbursements payable, together with all the forms that, once completed and returned, are required to open your property file. It’s seamless.
Q. What are the benefits?
The ‘All in One’ service means that once a buyer has been found for your home the sale can proceed without delay – you will have already received and completed the legal forms needed to open your file so SPL are able to send a draft contract to your purchasers lawyer, immediately .
You won’t need to waste time contacting legal firms, waiting for quotes, choosing the lawyer who you hope will do a good job and then stressing over the legal forms when they eventually arrive – at this point, time is of the essence and you’ll be under pressure and feeling the stress already – not having a lawyer in place before a buyer is found can cause a delay of up to two weeks!
Confidence & Communication
You’ll meet the Vickery staff selling your property and the lawyer and support staff acting on your behalf - we have effective and open communication channels between us to ensure we work together, efficiently, to progress your sale and provide you with regular updates.
One of the frustrations often felt by customers relates to the wider chain of transactions linked to their own sale – by establishing our ‘All in One’ service we ensure that your SPL lawyer keeps you and Vickery appraised of your sale and potential onward purchase, while Vickery identify and communicate with other parties in the chain of transactions to ensure sales are moving ahead as efficiently as possible. Regular updates from both Vickery and SPL give you peace of mind that your transaction and your chain are progressing.
Our ‘All in One’ service is based on a single fee which covers the cost of your property sale, legal fees connected to the sale and your Energy Performance Certificate (EPC). All of our fees are offered on a no sale, no fee basis*.
SPL are also able to provide a competitive quote should you have an onward purchase, so you will know in advance what the overall cost of your move will be.
