What do Codsall conveyancing solicitors do?

Your solicitor will handle all the legal elements of buying a home. This means performing due diligence on the property, like arranging searches from entities including South Staffordshire Council, raising questions about how the seller has used the property, reviewing contracts of sale and registering your ownership of the property at HMLR.

In addition to standard searches, Codsall conveyancing solicitors could also undertake coal mining searches, due to the area's mining history.

Will you be taking out a mortgage?

When purchasing property with a mortgage, it is standard practice for your solicitor to also act for your mortgage bank.

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

Our chosen panel solicitors have established relationships with the majority of lenders, from major banks like Nationwide to smaller, specialist lenders including Tandem Money - helping to ensure your transaction completes faster.

Leasehold flats

Almost all flats are leasehold. The legal work for a leasehold home can take weeks longer than a freehold property as there is more work involved and the freeholder and/or managing agent are also involved.

Delays in leasehold transactions could include anything from out-of-date contact information for the freeholder to missing leasehold documents.

Our expert leasehold conveyancing team handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month, and our proactive approach can mean faster conveyancing.

Selling a house or flat in Codsall

For the sale of property in Codsall, your lawyer will assemble all essential documents, including the TA6 and TA10 property information forms and title deeds.

The solicitor's role involves sorting out potential snags, responding to enquiries from the buyer's solicitor and handling the mortgage redemption.

The solicitor will coordinate with all stakeholders, like agents, lenders and landlords, to make sure your sale of your home completes without delay.

Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?

Compared to freehold property, yes. The conveyancing for selling leasehold houses or flats usually takes longer.

The solicitor acting for the buyer will need to review several leasehold-related documents, including a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance. Delays are usually caused by the time it takes the seller's conveyancer to get these documents together.

Your solicitor ought to start this process even before a sale has been agreed, because this information can take weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or landlord or they are slow to respond.
