Selling your Home is a Big Move

Let's Make it a Great One

Your step-by-step guide to selling your property

Step 1
Select the Right Estate Agent

It is important to engage an estate agent that is particularly experienced in the Dublin market. Check they are fully licensed by the PSRA, are based in an area with good passing foot traffic, and have a proactive service ethic as well as the ability to support you with the latest technology.

Step 2
Appoint a Solicitor

You will need a solicitor to handle the sale. An experienced & responsive solicitor will take a lot of potential hassle out of the whole process.

Your solicitor will gather together the information and documentation required for the sales process. It is recommended that the process of obtaining the title deeds to your property commences in advance of putting your property onto the market in order to avoid delays later on.

We are happy to recommend one of our panel of excellent solicitors to you.

Step 3
Prepare Property

H&L can recommend what changes to make to ensure your property maximises its appeal to viewers – and also execute those changes for you.

Our team will take professional photographs and produce a floor plan in one visit.


Step 4
Market Your Property

Maximum marketing exposure to the widest possible audience of interested parties.

When you instruct H&L you benefit from an extensive marketing campaign comprising of strong ‘on street’ exposure, plus excellent online and social media presence.

Step 5
Accompanied Viewings

Accompanied viewings mean we can use our experience to highlight the key selling features and answer any questions on the spot.

Having an estate agent that is flexible will also mean more viewings are accommodated at times that suit the buyer. Our agents are available for evening and weekend viewings.

Step 6
Receive Offers

We will contact you immediately whenever someone makes an offer on your property.

We will give you full details and any conditions on the offer so that you can make a decision whether to accept or not.

Step 7
Offer Accepted

When you accept an offer, we will communicate this to the buyer and also

  • Prepare a memorandum of sale
  • Confirm the agreed price to all parties
  • Ask you to confirm your solicitor’s details

Your solicitor will send out a draft contract to the buyer's solicitor who will then carry out preliminary enquiries.

At this stage you will also be able to agree on dates for the survey of your property, the exchange of contracts and proposed date for completion.

H&L will advise you and navigate on your behalf throughout this process.

You are under no legal obligation until contracts are signed.

Step 8

Contracts are signed and the balance of the monies due are transferred to your solicitor’s account. When those clear, we are informed and hand the keys to the buyer.

Congratulations! Your property is now sold.
