What does a Heywood property lawyer do?

A property lawyer plays an essential role during a property purchase transaction. This means carrying out comprehensive due diligence, like raising enquires of the seller, applying for searches from local authorities (e.g. Rochdale Council), reviewing contracts of sale and registering your property at HMLR.

Heywood conveyancing solicitors would also undertake searches for historic industrial activity and land contamination.
