What does a property lawyer do?

A conveyancer plays an essential role during a property purchase transaction. Your solicitor will order property searches, raise enquires of the seller, review the lease (if applicable) and complete any post-sale actions, such as paying Stamp Duty and HMLR registration.

In addition to standard searches, Barnoldswick conveyancing solicitors could also undertake searches for historic mine works and industrial contamination.

Whether you are buying your first home or purchasing an investment property, your solicitor must also complete legal work for the mortgage lender. Lender panel approval will mean your solicitor can act for your bank.

Selling a property in Barnoldswick

When selling a Barnoldswick property, your conveyancer will compile key documents, including the title deeds and ID forms.

Duties include answering the buyer's solicitor's questions and dealing with complications like lack of consent for alterations.

Your solicitor will also communicate effectively with the other parties, like estate agents and banks or building societies, confirming that the sale is completed successfully.

Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?

Yes, compared to freehold conveyancing. Sale conveyancing for a leasehold house or flat usually takes longer.

The solicitor acting for the buyer must review this leasehold-related paperwork, including a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance. The time required by your lawyer to gather this paperwork is the common cause of such delays.

It can take a long time to gather this paperwork if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or landlord or they are slow to respond, so the seller's solicitor ought to start this process before a buyer has even been found.
