What does a Kirkby conveyancing solicitor do?

A solicitor handles all of the post-offer aspects of buying property.

Kirkby conveyancing solicitors could also undertake flood risk searches and checks for historic industrial contamination.

Are you buying with a mortgage?

If you are getting a mortgage, your solicitor will also need to act for the bank.

If your conveyancing solicitor is not on your mortgage provider's panel, your purchase could take weeks longer and incur the cost of an additional solicitor to act for the lender.

Our chosen panel solicitors have established relationships with the majority of mortgage lenders, such as Co-operative Bank, Gatehouse and Newcastle Building Society - facilitating a quicker completion of your transaction.

Selling a property in Kirkby

For the sale of a home in Kirkby, your conveyancer will arrange all the necessary documentation, including the title deeds and the various property information forms, and help you fill out this paperwork.

The conveyancer will resolve any potential issues and respond to inquiries from the buyer's solicitor.

Your solicitor will work with both sides, like estate agents and banks or building societies, confirming that the move completes without delay.

Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?

Compared to freehold property, yes. The conveyancing for selling leasehold houses or flats usually takes longer.

The solicitor acting for the buyer will need to review several leasehold-related documents, including a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance. Delays are usually caused by the time it takes the seller's conveyancer to get these documents together.

Your solicitor ought to start this process even before a sale has been agreed, because this information can take weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or landlord or they are slow to respond.
