Do I have to be present at viewings?
No, you don’t. It used to be the case that estate agencies were happy to leave the homeowner to show prospective buyers around. However, this has now been dispensed with because they won’t necessarily have the property skills and experience of dealing with and selling to a buyer. Therefore, the preference is usually that you should not be present in the home at all, although this can obviously be difficult with infirmity, working from home, and childcare.
The best option is to discuss this with the estate agent when you appoint them, so that you are aware of their expectations for each viewing, and they will be able to work around you if you have to be present in the home. Whether you are present or not, you should still take care not to be too messy and tidy up as much as possible prior to the viewing appointment, so that good impressions are maintained.

Our lender is Direct Line Mortgages - what will I need to check?
Prior to recent changes, almost all solicitors could perform legal work for both buyers and mortgage lenders. Buyers should be aware that some lenders have reduced their 'solicitor panel'. For buyers, this can result in significantly greater legal costs. We can act for many mortgage lenders so that the buyer will not have to pay your lender's conveyancing fees.
