Selling your house is a process about which DIY (do it yourself) doesn’t work. Many people tend to prefer the DIY way when doing various things in their lives. Probably, this is the reason why some manufacturers sell refrigerators with some parts like handles not installed but having some kind of inlets for the consumers to do it themselves. There can be many reasons why people prefer DIY. These ranges from the contentment that comes after one successfully achieves a personal task to the possibility of saving the hard earned money.

Agreement of sale 

Many people do not know that an agreement of sale must meet certain requirements in order for it to be considered as an enforceable contract in a court of law.

Some of these important elements are offer, acceptance and consideration. So an agreement of sale is not a document about which you should think you can create using common sense.

Title deeds 

The importance of land to our lives is something that everyone knows well and cannot be over emphasised. Economist say it is one of the critical factors of production. Wars in Africa and elsewhere have been fought because of it.   So a person involved in the creation of title deeds should be thoroughly trained in land law and ALL relevant statutes.

Trust account services 

Imagine you change your property’s ownership in favour of a buyer but you do not get your money. There is therefore a need for a trusted third party to whom the money and original documents of ownership are deposited whilst the ownership of immovable property is transferred in favour of the buyer.  Professionals involved in the sale of property especially legal practitioners are required therefore, to have both a trust and a business account. A trust account’s purpose is one which is to hold in trust other people’s money  and a practitioner cannot use it for any other business. This is why there is need for the business account. In order to ensure that rules relating to a trust account are being observed a compulsory annual audit is done by the industry regulator.
