Are you a solicitor?

Why wait? Ensure clean sales and cut conveyancing timelines.

What do you need to sell a property?

Conveyancing, or the transfer of ownership of a property in Ireland requires a set of documents called the contract documents, provided by vendor (or seller’s) solicitor and accepted by the buyers solicitor.

The contract documents for the sale of a property are drawn from a number of different sources, but at the highest level, can be thought of as two parts – the Contracts of Sale document and the ancillary documentation, relating to the physical property:

  • maps and boundaries
  • planning and enforcement
  • building regulations
  • building energy rating
  • wayleaves, services and other rights and obligations

The technical documentation can be requested by a solicitor, but involvement and partnership with Engineers and Surveyors is required. It is prudent to carry out an on-site technical assessment of the existing documentation to avoid the delays that are occur when a buyer’s solicitor is unsatisfied with the initial contract documents.

Why is the Sellers Pack needed?

According to a the IPAV, four our of five estate agents surveyed recently said that they had experienced sales falling through, with a quarter saying that the issue occurred “frequently”, due to problems with documentation. Legislation is being introduced to address this, and make Seller’s Pack’s complusory. Solicitors are also are in favour of the concept of a Seller’s Pack to help cut the timelines from a current average of 16 weeks to 6-8 weeks.

The HomeCheck Seller’s Pack is the ideal solution for conveyancing solicitors and property sellers. Our Engineers and Surveyors can provide all the technical documentation a solicitor needs, covering planning and building regulation and land ownership.
