What does a conveyancing solicitor 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.

Your lawyer will perform due diligence on the property, such as arranging property searches, raising questions for the seller's solicitor, ensuring necessary funds are correctly transferred and registering your property at HMLR.

Kidsgrove conveyancing solicitors may undertake coal mining searches, due to the area's mining history.

Purchasing a home with a mortgage?

During the process of buying a house, your solicitor must also complete the legal work on behalf of the bank arranging your mortgage. If your lawyer is not on your mortgage provider's panel, your purchase could take weeks longer to complete and cost you more in the process.

Over 100 mortgage lenders have approved our chosen partner solicitors, so we can help you complete your Kidsgrove transaction without delay.

Buying a leasehold property

Almost every flat in the UK is leasehold. There are also an estimated 1 million leasehold houses throughout the country. The legal work for leasehold property typically takes longer than a freehold house as the freeholder and/or managing agent are also involved.

Examples of delays might include anything from slow delivery of managing agents' documents to an unreachable freeholder.

Leasehold specialists look after hundreds of leasehold clients every month. With specialist expertise there should be far fewer delays.

Selling a property in Kidsgrove

When selling a Kidsgrove home, the solicitor will prepare the necessary documentation, like the sale contract and the TA6 and TA10 property information forms.

Their role involves answering enquiries from the buyer's solicitor and resolving any potential issues.

The solicitor will also coordinate with both sides, like agents, managing agents and lenders, to make sure your sale completes quickly.

Does a leasehold property take longer to sell?

Yes, compared to freehold conveyancing. The conveyancing for selling leasehold properties usually takes longer.

The buyer's solicitor will expect to see this leasehold-related paperwork, like management company information and a current statement of service charges. Delays are usually the result of the time it takes your lawyer to source this information.

Your conveyancing solicitor should get this underway before a buyer has even been found, because this paperwork can take a long time to gather if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or landlord.

What are typical Kidsgrove conveyancing fees?

Getting a conveyancing quote online takes moments - but understanding what is and isn't included in the quote can be challenging.

Conveyancing legal fees

Your conveyancing solicitor's quote will set out the legal fees (inc. VAT) that you pay when the property transaction is complete. These fees are what your conveyancer charges you for the work they complete during your property transaction.

Disbursements

The quote will include necessary third-party costs, called disbursements, including Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT), HM Land Registry fees and property searches.

Check for hidden costs

When you compare conveyancing quotes, watch out for undisclosed fees missing from the original quote. Some solicitors' quotes may set out extra costs in their terms and conditions. This can mean an inflated final bill.
