What will my solicitor do?

A solicitor handles all of the post-offer aspects of buying property, and guides the buyer through the legal aspects of a home purchase. They will order property searches, raise enquires of the seller's solicitor, review contracts and ensure that post-purchase requirements, such as registering the property ownership with the Land Registry, are completed.

Ebbw Vale conveyancing solicitors could also undertake coal mining searches due to the area's history of coal mining.

Are you buying with a mortgage?

As part of the house buying process, your solicitor also has to handle legal due diligence on behalf of your bank or building society. Acceptance on a lender's panel will mean your solicitor can act on behalf of your lender.

We work with solicitors who can represent the vast majority of lenders, including HSBC, CHL Mortgages and Leeds Building Society, facilitating a quicker completion of your transaction.

Leasehold flats

Almost all flats are leasehold. There are also an estimated 1 million leasehold houses throughout the country. The conveyancing for leasehold property typically takes longer than freehold property as there is more to prepare and the landlord or managing agent are involved.

Varied factors, such as an absent freeholder or missing leasehold documents, can lead to serious delays.

Completely Moved's team of leasehold specialists complete the legal work for 100's of leasehold purchases each month, and our proactive approach means delays are less likely to occur.

Selling a house or flat in Ebbw Vale

When you're looking to sell a house or flat in Ebbw Vale, you can expect the solicitor to first arrange all the necessary documentation, including assorted property information forms and the draft contract.

The lawyer's role involves sorting out potential snags, responding to the buyer's solicitor's enquiries and redeeming the mortgage.

Your solicitor will coordinate with all parties, including agents, lenders and landlords, so the property sale is completed without incident.

Does the conveyancing for selling leasehold take longer?

Yes, it can take considerably longer to carry out the conveyancing on leasehold properties when compared to conveyancing on a freehold house.

The buyer's conveyancer will need to review several leasehold-related documents, such as an up-to-date statement of service charges. The time required by the seller's conveyancer to source this information is usually the cause of these delays.

Your lawyer should get this underway even before you have found a buyer, because these details can take weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the landlord or managing agent.
