What do Holyhead conveyancing solicitors do?

Selling a property in Holyhead

When you begin the process to sell a Holyhead house or flat, your conveyancer will first prepare the necessary documentation, including the various property information forms and the sale contract.

They will address potential issues, handle questions from the buyer's side and handle the mortgage redemption. By taking action to coordinate with all parties, like estate agents, landlords and lenders, your solicitor will help make sure your sale of your home completes as soon as possible.

Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?

Yes, that's correct, it can take much longer to carry out the legal work to sell a leasehold house or flat when compared to conveyancing on a freehold house.

The buyer's solicitor must review these documents, such as a current statement of service charges. The time required by your lawyer to get these documents together is usually the cause of these delays.

Your conveyancing solicitor should commence this even before you have found a buyer, because these details can take a long time to gather if the managing agent is slow or difficult to contact.
