What does an Addlestone property lawyer do?

A conveyancing solicitor plays a pivotal role in a purchase, and guides the buyer through the legal aspects of transferring ownership from the seller to the buyer. Your solicitor will order searches, raise enquires of the seller, review the lease (if applicable) and take care of tasks after the sale, including paying Stamp Duty.

In addition to standard searches, Addlestone conveyancing solicitors could also undertake checks for issues affecting high-value listed buildings and properties within green belt areas.

Purchasing with a mortgage?

During the conveyancing process, your solicitor must also complete the legal work on behalf of your bank or building society.

If your property lawyer is not on your bank's panel, your purchase could take significantly longer to complete and cost more.
