First of all we would like to wish you all best for 2019. Chances are it's going to be a challenging year in the property market but with preparation and motivation we hope it will be as productive as 2018 which, surprisingly, was Abode's best year yet.
That said, 2018 would have been even better if it had been possible to avoid some frustrating moments regarding inaccurate or missing permissions and authorisations for properties which appeared to be perfectly saleable. This is something we are keen to avoid in the future.
So, on the presumption that you are keen to sell your property this year, we strongly suggest you make sure the paperwork is in order and that all relevant permissions are in place. How do you do that? By contacting your technician, or finding a fresh, new technician if need be, and asking him or her to provide you with an overview of the existing paperwork and outline what needs to be done in order to make your property saleable. You may be under the impression that your house is in order (and we hope it is) but it's better to make sure now in order to avoid disappointment later. Regulations and laws are constantly changing and what was permissible even five years ago may not be today.
A property that is ready to sell on the day we enthusiastically take a excited buyer to see it potentially means that the contract can take place sooner and the sooner a contract takes place the better.
