What do Colwyn Bay conveyancing solicitors do?

A conveyancer or solicitor steers the buyer through the legal aspects of buying a home.

Your solicitor will raise questions for the seller, order searches, review contracts and fulfil post-completion formalities, such as HMLR registration.

Colwyn Bay conveyancing solicitors could also undertake searches for flood risk and historic mining activity.

Buying a home with a mortgage?

During the process of buying a house, your solicitor also has to take care of legal matters for your bank or building society.

Your transaction could take weeks longer and incur the cost of an additional solicitor to act for the lender if your property lawyer is not on your chosen mortgage provider's panel.

We work with conveyancers who can represent the vast majority of banks and specialist lenders, facilitating a quicker completion of your transaction.

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

The conveyancing process for a leasehold flat (houses are rarely leasehold) is a great deal more complex compared to a freehold house.

The complexities of leasehold mean conveyancing solicitors in Colwyn Bay will need to conduct additional legal work, such as requesting the latest service charge and ground rent statement, through to looking into potential forfeiture proceedings.

To reduce leasehold-related delays, It is highly recommended that you instruct a solicitor as soon as is practicable.
