Selling a property in Heanor

When you begin the process to sell a Heanor home, your solicitor will first prepare vital paperwork, including the draft contract and the TA6 and TA10 property information forms, and help you fill out these forms.

The duties of a seller's solicitor includes responding to enquiries from the buyer's solicitor, dealing with complications like absence of easement and redeeming the mortgage.

The solicitor will also communicate effectively with the other parties, like estate agents, landlords and lenders, to make sure your move is completed successfully.

Does the conveyancing for selling leasehold take longer?

Yes, it can take much more time to carry out the conveyancing on a leasehold house or flat, compared to freehold conveyancing.

The buyer's solicitor must review these documents, including a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property. The time it takes the solicitor to source this information is the common cause of such delays.

Your lawyer should commence this before a buyer has even been found, as this information could take several weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the landlord or managing agent.
