  • A few things will help: Hold an open day and have the house in pristeen condition. Only sell to people with no chain. Only sell to people who have their mortgage pre-approved with a reputable company - demand to see the paperwork. Cash buyers (investors?) will have the experience and resources to avoid some of the bureocracy. Ask that they use your solicitors to cut down on communication delays between parties. In my experience, solicitors are the key delay in the process, so make sure you have a good one.

  • Quickly can sometimes mean not at the best price. Buyers/agents will sense a seller wanting a 'quick deal'. The best way to get your property sold is to have all your 'ducks in line'. Get a survey to present the buyer with to confirm the condition and market price. I'd also get a good solicitor to prepare your legal documentation now, so a pre-buy pack can be provided to your buyer. This will also speed up the process and allow for the conveyancing to complete ASAP - buyers love this. I sold like this and shifted the property in a couple of viewings and within 4 weeks after offer we had exchanged and completed. I used a surveyor and solicitor though Well worth giving them a call.

  • I realise the question is a few years old, so I would have hoped you've sold by now! But for other vendors looking to sell their flat quickly it's worth considering selling at auction. Flats with short leases often sell particularly well at auction.
