Selling property in Edgware

For the sale of homes in Edgware, your lawyer will arrange all the necessary documentation, including the draft contract and ID forms, and help you complete these forms.

Responsibilities include resolving issues like a dispute with the freeholder, answering the buyer's solicitor's enquiries and taking charge of the mortgage redemption.

Your lawyer will work with both sides, like estate agents and banks or building societies, to help ensure the sale of your property completes quickly.

Does the conveyancing for selling leasehold take longer?

Yes. The legal work for selling leasehold properties usually takes longer.

The buyer's solicitor will need to review these documents, like a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance and a current statement of service charges. The time required by your solicitor to get these documents together is usually the cause of these delays.

It can take weeks to collect the managing agent's information if the agent responsible for managing the property is slow or difficult to contact, so your lawyer ought to start this process before a buyer has even been found.

How much do conveyancing solicitors fees cost in Edgware?

You can get an online quote for conveyancing in minutes, but making sense of what you actually be paying can be a challenge.

Legal fees

Conveyancing fees are paid to your conveyancing solicitor for the work they complete during your transaction. Your solicitor's quote should clearly detail the legal fees, including VAT, that you pay when the property transaction is complete.

Disbursements

The conveyancing quote should also include any disbursements, which are third-party costs, including Stamp Duty and Land Registry fees.

Is it a fixed fee quote?

Some solicitors' quotes may set out extra costs in the small print, leading to a higher-than-expected final bill. Beware of hidden fees or extra charges, if you are comparing quotes.
