If you're thinking about selling your home, there's a number of items you need to get in order to begin the process. Alongside budgeting for the costs of selling your property, it’s a good idea to start preparing the documents you’ll need throughout your sales journey.

Title Deeds

This is your legal proof of ownership and can be acquired by contacting the Land Registry.

Gas Safety Inspection Certificate & Electrical Safety Inspection Certificates

British Gas, Scottish Power or other energy providers will be able to provide these. Request an assessor visit; they'll be able to issue you with the relevant certificates.

Planning Permissions, Plans and Building Regulation Approvals

If your building is listed or has been granted planning permission, make sure to include the details in your documents.

Details of Council Tax, Buildings and Content Insurance Bills

This information can help potential buyers get a sense of the running costs of your property.

Mortgage Details

You'll need to provide your conveyancer with a rundown of how much of your mortgage is left outstanding, along with any other loans or charges associated with your property.
