Selling property in Cleveleys

When selling a Cleveleys property, the solicitor will arrange all the necessary documentation, including the draft contract and the TA6 and TA10 property information forms, and help you complete these forms. The conveyancer will sort out potential snags, respond to inquiries from the buyer's solicitor and redeem the existing mortgage. To ensure a smooth transfer, your conveyancing solicitor will liaise with key parties, such as estate agents and banks or building societies.

Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?

Correct, it can take much longer to carry out the conveyancing on leasehold houses or flats when compared to conveyancing on a freehold house.

The buyer's solicitor must review this leasehold-related paperwork. These could include a current statement of service charges and a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property. The time it takes your solicitor to get these documents together is commonly the source of delays.

Your lawyer should start this process even before you have found a buyer, as these details can take weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the managing agent.

How much should I budget for conveyancing in Cleveleys?

Legal fees

These fees are what your lawyer charges you for the tasks they complete during your transaction. Your solicitor's quote will detail the fees for the legal work, including VAT, that you'll pay when your transaction completes.

Double-check for additional fees or charges, if you are comparing conveyancing quotes. Some firms may set out extra costs in the small print. This can lead to a higher-than-expected final bill.
