Eastwood conveyancing solicitors would also undertake coal mining and brine extraction searches.

Are you buying a home with a mortgage?

Whether you are buying a second home or buying a new build property, your solicitor must also complete legal work for your mortgage bank. If your solicitor isn't accepted on your bank's panel, it may take weeks longer to purchase your property.

Buying a leasehold property

The vast majority of flats are leasehold. The legal work for a leasehold property can take weeks longer than freehold property as there is greater complexity.

Varied factors, such as an unreachable freeholder or slow receipt of the managing agent information, can lead to serious delays.

Our specialist leasehold solicitor team handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month. With specialist expertise there should be far fewer delays.

Selling a house or flat in Eastwood

When you're looking to sell a property in Eastwood, you can expect your conveyancing solicitor to first prepare the necessary documentation, including the various property information forms and the contract of sale.

The solicitor's role involves addressing snags like a planning issue, answering the buyer's solicitor's questions and taking charge of the mortgage redemption.

The solicitor will also coordinate with all stakeholders, including estate agents, landlords and lenders, to confirm that the home move completes without delay.

Does sale conveyancing take longer for leasehold?

Yes. Sale conveyancing for a leasehold house or flat usually takes longer.

The buyer's solicitor will expect to see these documents. These could include an up-to-date statement of service charges and a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property. The time needed by to get these documents together is the common cause of such delays.

It can take weeks to collect this paperwork if the managing agent or landlord is slow or difficult to contact, so your solicitor should get this underway even before a sale has been agreed.
