What does a Corby conveyancing solicitor do?

A solicitor plays an essential role during a property purchase, and guides you through the legal side of a home purchase. They will order searches, raise questions for the seller's solicitor, review contracts and ensure that post-purchase requirements, like paying Stamp Duty and HMLR registration, are completed.

In addition to standard searches, Corby conveyancing solicitors may carry out flood risk checks due to the River Nene and other watercourses.

Purchasing a property with a mortgage?

When you buy a house, your solicitor must also handle some legal work for the bank.

If your solicitor is not on your mortgage provider's panel, your purchase could take weeks longer and also cost more.

Over 100 banks and building societies have approved our chosen panel solicitors, so we can help you complete your Corby transaction smoothly.

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

The legal work for a leasehold flat or house is a great deal more involved than for a more straightforward freehold house.
