Please remember that all estimates are provisional and subject to change following inspection of your property by one of our specialists. If we determine that we are best positioned to sell your property on your behalf, a specialist will recommend the most appropriate sale and date in which to offer your property. This will ensure that your property receives the strongest possible bidding. You will then be asked to sign a Sellers Agreement outlining our terms and charges.
