Be ‘Contract Ready’ – sell your property faster, attract buyers

Be ‘Contract Ready’ – sell your property faster, attract buyers and reduce the risk of your sale falling through.

From 1st September 2015, Boyce Kelly Solicitors will be offering a ‘Contract Ready’ conveyancing service.

The new service guarantees to help clients sell their properties in a faster time frame and in a more streamlined way. Under the current system, the seller usually waits until the property goes ‘sale agreed’ before contacting their solicitor. Using our new service, the client is encouraged to contact the firm as soon as they decide to sell their property. In doing this, the client is gaining valuable weeks to gather together the necessary documentation required for the firm to draft comprehensive contracts. The firm will provide expert guidance to the client during the vital first weeks to ensure everything is in place.

As the contracts are ready to be issued as soon as the sale is agreed, there is no reason why the transaction should take any longer than 3-4 weeks to complete. This faster, more streamlined process reduces the risk of a sale falling through due to excessive delays and complications. The firm provides an adhesive ‘Stamp of Confidence’ which they advise should be placed on the ‘For Sale’ sign confirming that the property is ‘Contract Ready’. This confirms to any potential purchaser that the title deeds are in order and will attract buyers to the property. The firm will work closely with the client and their chosen estate agent to ensure a smooth sale.

Catherine Kelly, Partner in charge of Conveyancing at Boyce Kelly Solicitors commented on the new service: ‘Selling property is taking longer in recent years, to the frustration of clients, estate agents and solicitors. We have been investigating new ways of speeding up and streamlining the conveyancing process to provide a better service to our clients at a competitive price. We had certain criteria that we wanted this new service to meet, such as faster turnaround times, a high standard of legal work and competitive fees. Key to our new process is greater client contact from the day they take the decision to sell their property. Our new ‘Contract Ready’ system allows us to achieve all of this.’

Earlier this year, the representative body for Estate Agents in Ireland, the Institute of Professional Auctioneers and Valuers (IPAV) surveyed their members on the difficulties they experience with the conveyancing process. One of the biggest concerns reported was the increasing delays, resulting in unnecessary complications and sales falling through. The new ‘Contract Ready’ service offered by Boyce Kelly Solicitors eliminates delays and fosters confidence within the sector.

Paul Franklin, Managing Director of Franklins Estate Agents commented on the new service: ‘Franklins heartily endorse Boyce Kelly’s ‘Contract Ready’ move. An important step to streamline the hopelessly outdated system of property selling operating in Ireland. Franklins introduced ‘28’ in February 2014 – Ireland’s first estate agent to offer ‘contract ready’ properties for sale. We now see a high percentage of sales exchange contracts very quickly as a result. Boyce Kelly are clearly in business to deliver the best possible service to their clients and we wish them well.’

For a limited time, we offer this service for €800.00 plus vat plus outlays. This includes all work needed to be done to sell the property. If the property does not reach sale agreed status, we will not charge the client.
