What does a Cleethorpes property lawyer do?

Your conveyancing solicitor plays an essential role during a property purchase. Your lawyer will raise enquires of the seller's solicitor, order searches, review contracts and fulfil post-completion formalities, including paying Stamp Duty and HMLR registration.

Cleethorpes conveyancing solicitors may also undertake flood risk checks due to low-lying land.

Buying a home with a mortgage?

When you purchase a property, your solicitor also needs to carry out some legal work for your mortgage lender. If your conveyancer isn't accepted on your chosen mortgage provider's panel, it may take many weeks longer to complete the purchase.

Our chosen panel lawyers have established relationships with the majority of banks and building societies, so you can complete your purchase without delay.

Leasehold property

The vast majority of flats are leasehold. Leasehold houses are less common, but there are still an estimated 1 million such properties across the country. Purchasing a leasehold property can take weeks longer than a freehold house because there is more to prepare and there is greater complexity.

Causes of numerous delays can range from slow delivery of managing agents' documents to an unreachable freeholder.

Our expert leasehold conveyancing team handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month. With specialist expertise there should be far fewer delays.

Selling a property in Cleethorpes

When you begin the process to sell a home in Cleethorpes, your conveyancing solicitor will first assemble all essential documents, including the draft contract and the TA6 and TA10 property information forms, and help you fill out this paperwork.

Their duties entail handling obstacles like a planning issue and responding to the buyer's solicitor's enquiries.

Your lawyer will work with all parties, like agents, managing agents and lenders, confirming that the sale completes quickly.

Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?

Compared to freehold property, yes. Sale conveyancing for a leasehold house or flat can take much longer.

The buyer's solicitor will want to see several leasehold-related documents, like management company information and a current statement of service charges. The time required by your solicitor to source this information is the common cause of such delays.

The seller's solicitor should get this underway even before a sale has been agreed, as the managing agent's information could take several weeks to collect if the managing agent or landlord is slow or difficult to contact.
