What do Droitwich conveyancing solicitors do?

Your conveyancer plays a pivotal role in a property purchase.

The solicitor will order searches, raise enquires of the seller, review the contract of sale, and handle post-completion tasks, such as registering the property ownership with the Land Registry and paying Stamp Duty.

In addition to standard searches, Droitwich conveyancing solicitors may also undertake flood risk assessments due to river proximity (Severn and Avon).

Purchasing a property with a mortgage?

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

If your lawyer is not on your chosen lender's panel, your purchase could take significantly longer to complete.

More than 100 banks and building societies have approved our chosen panel solicitors. We can help you complete your Droitwich transaction without delay.

Selling a house or flat in Droitwich

When selling a home in Droitwich, your conveyancing solicitor will assemble all essential documents, including the draft contract and assorted property information forms.

Duties include addressing snags like a missing electrical installation certificate and answering the buyer's solicitor's enquiries.

In order to facilitate a faster completion, your conveyancer will coordinate with both sides, such as estate agents, landlords and lenders.

Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?

Compared to freehold property, yes. Sale conveyancing for a leasehold house or flat can take much longer.

The buyer's solicitor will need to review these documents, such as details of any breaches by other leaseholders. The time needed by your solicitor to gather this paperwork is usually the cause of these delays.

Your conveyancing solicitor should commence this before a buyer has even been found, as the managing agent's information can take a long time to gather if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or landlord or they are slow to respond.
