#AskTheExpert... FAQs from Potential Sellers!

At Ryder & Dutton we pride ourselves on our knowledge within the industry and the unique service we provide to our clients.

It is with this in mind that we are launching our #AskTheExpert series, a collection of some FAQs from a number of different areas within the property world, which we think will really help some of you with somethings that you just aren't sure about...


How do I know if I can afford to sell and buy on?

Ryder & Dutton Estate Agents work with the Mortgage Advice Bureau to provide independent mortgage advice. Our advice is totally independent and will be specifically tailored to your needs and circumstances which could be for your first home, moving home, investing in property or remortgaging. We can also offer a free market appraisal of your home providing you with the information which the mortgage advisor would use to determine your lending capabilities for a potential onward purchase.


Should I hold off on organising a valuation of my property until I have found the house I want to purchase?

You could research homes of interest on the market but if you have a home that you are dependent upon selling to buy on it would be unlikely that you could proceed quickly. We can offer a free market appraisal of your home providing you with all the information you require helping with your potential onward purchase in the process even down to the finer details like conveyancing, survey and removals. Ryder & Dutton offer a first class market leading service offering our clients total commitment and dedication. We believe that in order to sell your house effectively we must be highly motivated and maintain exceptional levels of customer care. Our job is not complete until you move home.

If I use Ryder & Dutton to sell my house am I tied into a contract period?

Right from the start with our free no obligation pre-sales advice through to the completion of your sale we are here for you and there is no minimum contract when selling your home.

What service would I expect to receive from your agency when I am looking to sell my home?

Selling your home can be a complicated process and one of the most important transactions you will make. It is important that you choose the right agent to help you. We are RICS registered Agents who are regulated and follow strict rules of conduct and ensure best practice alongside exceptional customer service.

What do you do differently to other Estate Agents?

We are selected members of Relocation Agent Network providing potential purchasers looking in your area who live around the UK alongside our 24 branches covering East Lancashire, Ribble and Hodder Valleys, Lancashire, West Yorkshire, North Derbyshire regions of the Pennines and the Rossendale Valley.

When do I pay the agreed fee for selling my home? 

When you instruct Ryder & Dutton to sell your home we offer No Sale No fee so once the property completes your solicitors will pay the fee to us as agreed upon instruction.
