Managing your seller's expectations

Communication with the seller is important!

When purchasing a property, you may find that during the process the seller might become impatient. This can be nerve-wracking and can make you feel under a lot of pressure to complete as quickly as possible.

The best way to combat this is to manage your seller's expectations. By keeping regular communication with the sellers you can find it a lot easier to keep them in the loop with what's happening and to give them an idea on timescales.

Don't be afraid to rely on your Estate Agent and solicitor for assistance here. They will be able to help liaise with the seller and their solicitor to indicate how the process is going. Your solicitor will be in discussion with the seller's solicitor over any information they require and will also be able to discuss exchange and completion dates with them. You can find more information on exchange and completion here.

If you know for any reason there will be a delay or are aware of a certain timeframe, it is important to communicate this early on with the seller to avoid any misunderstandings.

If you and the seller are on the same page regarding completion dates, you are less likely to run into any issues with them growing impatient.
