Selling your property can, sometimes, be a lengthy process, but with the help of your solicitors you can accelerate this process and save a lot of stress.
You will be required to have your title deeds at your earliest convenience to draft a contract for selling the property. You will also need to provide your solicitors with comprehensive information and instructions regarding sale details.
The recommended information and documentation to have together includes:
- The location of your title documents – including the name of the bank and account number if they are kept with a bank.
- A Local Property Tax printout demonstrating the property taxes paid up until the current year end, which can be obtained from www.revenue.ie.
- A Certificate of Exemption or Discharge for NPPR (applied from 2009 to 2013) which can be found on www.nppr.ie.
- Information about your water and drainage supply.
- Evidence of registration of any septic tank on the property, which can be found on www.protectourwater.ie if applicable.
- A copy of your state marriage or civil partnership certificate if you are or have been married, and a copy of the separation agreement or divorce if applicable.
- A BER Certificate displaying the energy rating of your home.
- Information about any building work completed, along with copies of any relevant planning permissions and architects’ certificates of compliance.
- If your property is in a managed development, the contact information for the management company or managing agents, as well as receipts for service charges.
- A copy of the letting agreement if the property is currently rented.
- Details of any contents that are included in the sale.
- PPS Number(s) for proof of identity.
- Photographic identification such as passport(s).
- A utility bill or bank statement (within the last 3 months) to confirm your address.
