Selling a house or flat in Boston

When selling property in Boston, your lawyer will prepare vital paperwork, such as property information forms and title deeds.

The lawyer's role involves answering the buyer's solicitor's questions, overcoming hurdles such as a planning issue and taking charge of the mortgage redemption.

Your lawyer will also communicate effectively with the other parties, including agents, lenders and landlords, to confirm that the sale completes quickly.

Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?

Yes, that's correct, it can take much longer to conduct the conveyancing to sell leasehold houses or flats when compared to conveyancing on a freehold house.

The solicitor acting for the buyer will expect to see these documents, including management company information. Typically, delays are due to the time required by your lawyer to get these documents together.

Your lawyer ought to start this process before a buyer has even been found, as the managing agent's information can take a long time to gather if the agent responsible for managing the property is slow or difficult to contact.
