What you need to do when your selling a house

Posted on

Matters that you will need to look after include the following:

  • After you see your solicitor, you will need to deal directly with your auctioneer regarding placing your home for sale, the necessary Building Energy Rating (BER) certificate (for information see www.seai.ie), any contents included in the sale and negotiation of the terms of sale (including the auctioneer’s fees and advertising expenses).
  • Before closing, you will need to attend to closing any utilities accounts.

Before seeing your solicitor:

  • Do not take a deposit.
  • Do not sign anything for anybody.
  • Do not permit occupation by anyone until the sale is completed.
