What does a property lawyer do?

For a house or flat purchase, the conveyancing solicitor will address all the legal details of the transaction. The solicitor will order property searches, raise questions for the seller's solicitor, review contracts and fulfil post-completion formalities, including HMLR registration and paying Stamp Duty Land Tax.

In addition to standard searches, Daventry conveyancing solicitors may undertake flood risk checks due to the River Nene and other watercourses, and radon searches.

Purchasing with a mortgage?

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

If your conveyancing solicitor is not on your chosen mortgage provider's panel, your purchase could take weeks longer and incur more costs.

Over 100 building societies, banks and lenders have approved our chosen partner solicitors, so we can help you complete your Daventry transaction without delay.

Selling a house or flat in Daventry

When selling a Daventry house or flat, your conveyancer will prepare the necessary documentation - such as title deeds and ID forms, and will help you answer these forms. The conveyancer will handle questions from the buyer's side, sort out potential snags and redeem the existing mortgage. Your lawyer will also communicate effectively with the other parties, like agents, managing agents and lenders, so your sale of your home completes quickly.

Does sale conveyancing take longer for leasehold?

Yes, that's correct, it can take considerably longer to carry out the legal work to sell a leasehold house or flat, compared to freehold conveyancing.

The solicitor acting for the buyer will need to review this leasehold-related paperwork. These could include details of any breaches by other leaseholders and a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property. Delays are usually the result of the time needed by to source this information.

It could take several weeks to collect this information if the agent responsible for managing the property is slow or difficult to contact, so your lawyer ought to start this process even before a sale has been agreed.
