What does a conveyancing solicitor do?

A conveyancer or solicitor plays a pivotal role in a purchase, and helps you with the legal aspect of a home purchase. They will carry out comprehensive due diligence on the property, such as property searches, raising questions about how the seller has used the property, reviewing contracts of sale and registering the change of ownership.

Bude conveyancing solicitors may also undertake mining searches, particularly for tin, and radon and mundic checks.

Purchasing a property with a mortgage?

When buying a home with a mortgage, it is standard practice for your solicitor to also act for your lender.

If your conveyancing solicitor is not on your mortgage provider's panel, your purchase could take weeks longer to complete.

More than 100 banks and building societies have approved our chosen panel lawyers. We can help you complete your Bude transaction without delay.

Is there anything to be aware of if selling a leasehold property in Bude?

Conveyancing for a leasehold flat (leasehold houses are uncommon) is quite a lot more complex than it is for a freehold home.

The complex nature of leasehold property means that conveyancing solicitors in Bude must carry out additional tasks, for example sourcing an up-to-date service charge statement, through to a copy of the insurance policy.

So as to resolve any leasehold-related delays sooner, It is highly recommended that you instruct a property lawyer as soon as possible.
