You've probably seen the memes doing the rounds on social media, proclaiming there are ever-decreasing number of weekends until Christmas. While this sends some people into a present-buying panic, early autumn presents a window of opportunity for property sellers who hope to have exchanged, completed or even moved into a new home by Christmas Eve.

Here at London Residential our teams are advising sellers across Camden and Kentish Town that now is the time to go on the market, make offers on onwards purchases, confirm mortgage applications and instruct solicitors. Do it now in September and there's a good chance you'll be in time for tinsel and turkey in a new property, 

To get sellers off to a flying start, North West London estate agents London Residential asked staff across its branches to share the most commonly asked questions by sellers, together with their invaluable answers. There was so much advice that we've split the guide into two - here's part one. Part two will follow in early October, so keep checking our website for the next instalment.
