Frequently asked questions
I am based overseas; do I need to be in the UK to instruct an estate agent?
Silverfinch work with many overseas clients and have built longstanding relationships having never met before, so you don’t need be in the UK to instruct Silverfinch. Whether you are selling or letting your property, we can provide an up-to-date market appraisal and once instructed we will provide ongoing feedback to ensure you receive the best possible service.
How can we manage the paperwork process?
All paperwork can now be signed digitally from anywhere in the world, and can be done instantaneously so there is no delay.
Do I need to refurbish my property before I sell it?
We would usually advise the vendor not to refurbish their property as most buyers are likely to put their own stamp on the property once they have bought it.
How many weeks deposit is taken for a tenancy?
It is standard practice to take a 6-week deposit per tenancy.
How do you qualify potential buyers?
All potential buyers must prove they have the ‘ability to proceed’ once registered with Silverfinch. This either means they will be a cash buyer or have approval from their lender.
Can you recommend solicitors?
Yes, we can recommend solicitors with a proven record of providing a high level of service.
