Selling property in Bury

When you're looking to sell a Bury home, you can expect your lawyer to first prepare vital paperwork, including title deeds and the various property information forms, and will help you answer these forms.

I am selling a leasehold property in Bury - what do I need to know?

The conveyancing process for a leasehold flat or house is a great deal more complex than for a freehold house.

The complex nature of leasehold property means that conveyancing solicitors in Bury must carry out additional work, such as collating the latest service charge and ground rent statement, through to a copy of the insurance policy.

To reduce leasehold-related delays, It is strongly advised that you instruct a solicitor as early as possible.
