Below is a list of steps you must take if you wish to sell your property in Ireland.
1.Engage a licenced Estate Agent/Auctioneer
An estate agent will ask for the following documents in order for them to sell your property:
i.Property Service Agreement
This is an agreement between yourself and the estate agent. This outlines the terms and conditions of the sale between the vendor and estate agent.
ii.BER Building Energy Rating
You will need to provide your agent with a copy of the BER, an agent can not advertise your property without an Energy Rating. You can see more information on BERs on our webpage https://jdproperty.ie/ber-ratings/
Provide your agent with photo (Passport or Irish Driving Licence) and address identification (Bank Statement, Utility Bill, Tax office correspondence) for all parties involved with the property. For non private residence sales, the address identification would be your current correspondence address.
iv.Providing your agent with the following can also help with the sale of your property:
- Floor Plans
- Folio Numbers
2.Engage a Solicitor
You will need to provide your solicitor with the following documentation:
- LPT; Local Property Tax Receipt, up to date.
- NPPR; Non Private Principle Residence Tax Receipt, only if the subject property is not your principle private residence.
- Certificate of Registration for your Septic Tank, if applicable.
- Confirmation of Registration with Irish Water.
- PPS number; if you are non-resident you will have to acquire an Irish PPS number (Tax number).
- Title Documents to the Property
If your property is currently let to tenants you will have to follow the extra steps:
