Keeping your sale on the boil is the most important part of an estate agents job.

We liaise with the buyer, seller, mortgage advisor and both solicitors to ensure that the timescales expected are met.

Mother Goose go above and beyond to ensure that any information and documents are forwarded on to you at the earliest possible opportunity to eliminate any holdups.

Once the mortgage application, surveys, searches, enquiries and anything else that will need to be verified is met, the contracts are ready to be signed by both parties and exchanged by the solicitors.

At this point a confirmed completion date is agreed and both parties enter into a legally binding agreement to sell/buy the house.

The final stage requires the buyer to pay outstanding monies to your solicitor. Keys would usually be handed to our office ready for the buyer to collect on completion date.

Congratulations! You have now sold your property.
