Buying or selling a home? Do you require a valuation? Please contact for advice or fill in the valuation form.
In the meantime, here are a few guidelines which we hope will assist:
Firstly, if you are selling, you will require a valuation. At Saxon Kings we can offer you a free, no obligation factual and accurate appraisal of the current market value of your home. Our experienced property valuers will provide you with a valuation based not only on their in depth knowledge of Kingston Upon Thames and the surrounding areas, but also utilising our extensive database of recent properties sold.
Having received your valuation, and provided that you are satisfied with it, we will then proceed to prepare full sales details of your property. Bearing in mind the importance of presentation, we will ensure that your sales details highlight the vitally important aspects of your property and ensure that your home is shown to its best possible advantage with the aid of high quality professional photographs and, if required, we can also set up a computerised 360 degree/virtual tour to feature on our website.
Once you have seen and approved our particulars of your home, you will then be in a position to receive prospective buyers. Appointments to view your property are made by Saxon Kings and we strongly recommend accompanied viewing to show prospective buyers around your home, although you can do this yourself should you prefer.
Your property is now ready to market and we offer the following:
This is the most simple and effective marketing tool, available 24 hours a day.
External and internal photographs will be prominently displayed in our premises in order to optimise exposure to the market place.
Wherever possible, all prospective buyers who register with us are asked to provide email addresses in order to ensure that they are notified of any new properties as soon as possible within 24 hours of receiving your instruction.
We will contact registered prospective buyers as soon as possible after receiving your instruction and your details will be forwarded to any new registered buyers immediately.
This is updated daily and full details of your home are available on our website within 12 hours of being placed on the market saving you valuable time.
We also have an optional floorplan/brochure package which can assist to further enhance your property.
Besides the exposure on our own site and social media Saxon Kings is also affiliated with the following national property websites which will feature your home:
Rightmove, Zoopla & PrimeLocation
At Saxon Kings, we pride ourselves on our pro-active sales progression. We aim to keep you regularly updated on your sales process right through to completion. We will liaise with your buyer, the legal representatives, surveyors and mortgage lenders in order to ensure that your sale is progressed as smoothly and as stress-free as possible. You can log into your personal 'propertyfile' to gain 24/7 transparent access to your viewings, feedback, offers and the progress of your sale.
Any offers we receive are promptly verbally notified and then followed up in writing. Our experienced sales team will negotiate between you and your prospective buyer in order to achieve the strongest offer.
We will inform you of the position of the buyers and liaise with you until an accepted offer has been agreed.
Should you require your sale to be completed by a certain date, this is when you should notify us and we will endeavour to satisfy your request wherever possible.
At this stage, you should also provide your list of Fixture and Fittings which will be negotiated separately between the solicitors and forms part of the final contract.
At this point (if you have not already done so), you will need to instruct a solicitor and, should you require assistance, Saxon Kings will only be too pleased to recommend local firms.
The solicitors will then write to all parties and the buyers will instruct a surveyor to conduct a survey of your property (the “agreed sale” is subject to the contract and any survey) and the buyers’ mortgage offer (if required) will also be subject to the results of the survey.
The sellers’ solicitors will request the TITLE DEEDS from the lender (if appropriate) or yourselves as the seller and the FIXTURES AND FITTINGS form must be completed at this stage.
The solicitors draw up the DRAFT CONTRACT which sets of the Terms of the Sale and sends it to the buyers’ solicitor together with all relevant documents. Any enquiries will then be raised, the Title Deeds and Lease (if applicable) will be checked and LOCAL SEARCHES carried out.
Once the draft contracts have been approved, it can be signed by both parties.
As long as the mortgage offer has been received and cleared funds placed with your buyer’s solicitor, a mutually convenient date can be agreed upon for the exchange of contracts.
The completion and your actual house move can take between 7 to 28 days depending on the buyers, sellers and their respective solicitors.
