What do Alsager conveyancing solicitors do?

Your lawyer will handle all the legal elements of transferring ownership from the seller to the buyer.

Your solicitor will order searches, raise questions for the seller, review the contract of sale and take care of tasks after the sale, like paying Stamp Duty and HMLR registration.

Alsager conveyancing solicitors would also undertake searches to assess flood risk, subsidence and mining-related risks.

Are you taking out a mortgage?

As part of the house buying process, your solicitor also has to handle legal due diligence on behalf of the lender.

If your property lawyer is not on your mortgage provider's panel, your purchase could take weeks longer.

Our chosen panel solicitors have established relationships with the majority of building societies, banks and lenders, including NatWest, Cynergy Bank and Cambridge Building Society - so you can complete your purchase without delay.

Buying a property in a conservation area

When you purchase a property in an Alsager conservation area, your conveyancer will check for restrictive covenants, e.g. restrictions on animal ownership, and planning restrictions. Conservation areas in Alsager and across the Cheshire East local authority include:

  • Rainow Village
  • Lyme Park
  • Pott Shrigley
  • Rainow Ginclough
  • Kettleshulme

Leasehold property

The vast majority of flats are leasehold. Leasehold houses are less common, but there are still an estimated 1 million such properties across the country. The conveyancing for a leasehold flat typically takes longer than a freehold home because there is more work involved and there is greater complexity.

Causes of numerous delays can range from incomplete managing agent information to absent freeholders.

Specialist leasehold solicitors look after hundreds of leasehold clients every month, and our proactive approach can mean faster conveyancing.

Selling property in Alsager

The sale of an Alsager house or flat will require your solicitor to first assemble all essential documents, including the title deeds and assorted property information forms, and help you fill out these forms.

The solicitor will reply to the buyer's solicitor's inquiries, resolve any potential issues and handle the mortgage redemption.

Your lawyer will also coordinate with all parties, like estate agents, landlords and lenders, to help ensure the property sale completes without delay.

Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?

Yes. Sale conveyancing for a leasehold property can be seriously delayed.

The buyer's conveyancer will need to review several leasehold-related documents. These could include an up-to-date statement of service charges and a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property. Delays are usually the result of the time required by to get these documents together.

Your solicitor should commence this as soon as possible, because the managing agent's information can take a long time to gather if the landlord or managing agent is slow or difficult to contact.

Conveyancing costs in Alsager: What to expect

Solicitors' fees

These fees are what your conveyancer charges you for the legal services they provide during your property transaction. Your solicitor's quote should clearly detail the legal fees, including VAT, that you'll pay when your transaction completes.

Conveyancing disbursements

Your quote should also list any disbursements, which are costs paid to third parties on your behalf, including Local authority searches, Stamp Duty or an indemnity policy.

Check what's included in your conveyancing quote

Some solicitors' quotes include additional fees in the small print. This can mean a higher final bill. If you are comparing conveyancing quotes, watch out for undisclosed fees missing from the original quote.
