One of the first things you’ll need to do, after finding an agent to sell your property, is to complete an Exclusive Sale Authority.

This form gives your chosen agent permission to act on your behalf for a set period of time and it outlines the fee they’ll be paid for their services. The document will also include details of:

  • Your personal information
  • The property address
  • The duration of the authority
  • Goods and chattels that are included in the sale
  • The price estimates
  • Commission charges
  • Marketing costs

The agent isn’t allowed to begin the sales process until they have a signed Sales Authority form, so it’s important you get it completed quickly.
