Selling a property in Biddulph

When selling homes in Biddulph, your lawyer will arrange all the necessary documentation, including the contract of sale and ID forms, and help you fill out this paperwork.

The role of a conveyancer acting for the seller includes resolving any potential issues and answering the buyer's solicitor's enquiries.

By taking action to coordinate with all stakeholders, like agents, lenders and landlords, your conveyancing solicitor will help make sure your sale completes quickly.

Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?

Yes, compared to freehold conveyancing. Sale conveyancing for a leasehold property can result in long delays.

The buyer's conveyancer will expect to see several leasehold-related documents. These could include a current statement of service charges and a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance. The time it takes your lawyer to get these documents together is commonly the source of delays.

It can take weeks to collect this paperwork if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or they are slow to respond, so your lawyer should get this underway at the earliest opportunity.
