Whether you are acting for a seller or a Buyer, clicktopurchase® makes your job easy.

Selling

When your client is wishing to offer a property for sale using clicktopurchase®, your client’s agent and the seller is able to react to the market and use the platform to close a sale by exchanging contracts immediately online by clicktopurchase® (private treaty), “best offers” or at a clicktopurchase® auction, at any point during the sale.

The contract of sale and legal package

Completion of the legal package will enable your client and their agent to exchange online with verified Bidders should an acceptable clicktopurchase® offer to treat be submitted, as well as run live auctions or binding clicktopurchase® “best offers”.

The agent is able to provide administration access for a seller’s solicitor to execute the exchanges online. Contact the agent should you require such access.

Contract Suite

As a seller’s solicitor, you will need to complete the contract suite by completing the Special Conditions of Sale.

Commercial Property Contract Suite

Residential Property Contract Suite

Please refer to these documents when you supply the completed Special Conditions of Sale. We recommend that you liaise with the selling agent in case the method of sale changes and you wish to review your Special Conditions.

Legal Package

When you provide the documentation, we recommend that you supply as “PDFs” numbered and labelled in accordance with your Document Index.

The faster you can supply the complete package, the faster a property can be offered with clicktopurchase®. Therefore, we recommend you apply for searches and collate the appropriate information as quickly as possible.

We provide an ability for the seller’s solicitor to upload the legal documentation directly. Should you wish to have this ability, the selling agent can provide access by sending you an appropriate confidential link generated by the platform.

We recommend the specific documentation for each sale to include:
