Selling a property in Great Missenden

At the start of the property selling process in Great Missenden, the solicitor will compile key documents, including the contract of sale and ID forms, and help you fill out this paperwork.

The conveyancer's role involves overcoming hurdles such as missing planning consent, answering the buyer's solicitor's enquiries and taking charge of the mortgage redemption.

In order to assure a smooth transfer of ownership, your conveyancing solicitor will coordinate with all stakeholders, such as agents, managing agents and lenders.

Does the conveyancing for selling leasehold take longer?

Correct, it can take much more time to carry out the conveyancing on leasehold properties, compared to the sale of a freehold property.

The buyer's solicitor will need to review several leasehold-related documents, like a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance and details of any breaches by other leaseholders. Delays are usually the result of the time required by your lawyer to get these documents together.

It can take a long time to gather this information if the managing agent or landlord is slow or difficult to contact, so the solicitor should commence this even before you have found a buyer.
