What do conveyancing solicitors do?

A conveyancing solicitor handles all of the post-offer aspects of buying property, and guides you through the legal side of a home purchase.

They will raise enquires of the seller, order searches, review contracts, and handle post-completion tasks, such as paying Stamp Duty.

In addition to standard searches, Kidderminster conveyancing solicitors may also undertake flood risk assessments due to river proximity (Severn and Avon).

Selling property in Kidderminster

When selling homes in Kidderminster, your conveyancing solicitor will arrange all the necessary documentation - such as ID forms and the contract of sale.

Responsibilities include sorting out potential snags, responding to enquiries from the buyer's solicitor and handling the mortgage redemption.

Your lawyer will liaise with key parties, including agents, managing agents and lenders, confirming that the move is completed successfully.

What do I need to know if selling a leasehold property in Kidderminster?

The conveyancing process for a leasehold flat is much more protracted than for a freehold property.

The complexities of leasehold mean conveyancing solicitors in Kidderminster will need to conduct additional legal work, including collating the latest service charge and ground rent statement, through to a copy of the insurance policy.

In order to resolve any leasehold problems faster, It is recommended that the vendor contact a property lawyer as soon as is practicable.
