Where are my Title Deeds?

Your Title deeds are proof of ownership. As part of our due diligence we require proof of ownership before marketing your property for sale. They will normally be held by your bank or building society if you have a mortgage, but if you need assistance we can help too!

Do I need to redecorate before I put my property on the market?

First impressions count, making the presentation of your property fundamental– we can lend a hand with our trusted in-house maintenance team to do any DIY jobs you need doing. If cash flow is an issue, we can offer up to £1,000 worth of work with no upfront payment required (this is payable upon completion or withdrawal of the property).

Who will conduct viewings on my property and when will they occur?

Your designated property consultant will accompany all viewings. You will always be given a minimum of 24hours to allow you time to prepare for the viewing and they will only occur if the day and time is convenient for you too.

Do I need to be present for viewings

As mentioned a consultant from Cavendish will always accompany viewings so it is not essential for you to be present. It is worth noting that buyers often feel more relaxed when the owner is not present.

If I accept an offer will my property still be viewed?

This is dependent on the conditions of the offer and your personal choice.

Do I have to pay stamp duty?

Payment of stamp duty is the responsibility of the buyer.

When do I have to move out?

The latest you can move out of your property will be the date of completion (set by yourselves and the buyer mutually).

Do I have to pay Capital Gains Tax on the property?

If you are selling a property that is your main home, you won’t have to pay tax as long as you satisfy certain conditions. However, if you are selling a property that is not your main home, it is likely you may have to pay Capital Gains Tax.
