When you’re trying to sell your house, it can be confusing to figure out what documents you need. In this article, real estate agent San Predro will discuss all of the different documents that you typically need when buying a house.
Here’s what you need:
Title to the property
This document shows you own the house you wish to sell. It could be in the form of a deed or a title search report. Many buyers will want to see this right away, so it’s best if you have it on hand when you start showing the property.
Certificate of title
This is a document that confirms that there are no liens on your property and that no one else has an interest in it such as an easement or other claim of ownership, which is useful if someone else has a lien on it.
You’ll also need a tax bill from the county treasurer’s office; this tells potential buyers how much they’ll have to pay in taxes each year if they buy your house.
Permit for sale and transfer of ownership
Any permits or approvals from local government agencies such as zoning boards or building inspectors (if necessary). If there are any outstanding issues with permits or approvals related to your property, make sure those are resolved before scheduling any showings!
Deed of sale
This is a legal document that describes the property that’s being sold, who owns it, and how much money was exchanged during the sale. It serves as proof that the buyer now owns the property.
If there’s any information about how close your house is to any neighboring properties or roads, or anything like that, make sure you can get it quickly so you can give it to your potential buyer in the first round of showings!
Contract to sell (between seller and buyer)
This is an agreement between two parties outlining their responsibilities if they decide not to go through with the sale. This is important because it protects both parties against any unforeseen circumstances that could arise during the process of buying or selling a home.
Now that you know what you need to make the sale of your home go smoothly, you can breathe easy. We hope this blog post was helpful!
