Selling a house or flat in Knottingley

When you begin the process to sell a house or flat in Knottingley, your conveyancing solicitor will first prepare vital paperwork, including the TA6 and TA10 property information forms and title deeds.

Their duties entail sorting out potential snags and responding to the buyer's solicitor's questions.

By taking action to work with both sides, like estate agents and banks or building societies, your lawyer will help make sure your sale of your home is completed successfully.

Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?

Compared to freehold property, yes. The legal work for selling a leasehold house or flat typically takes longer.

The solicitor acting for the buyer will want to see this leasehold-related paperwork, like management company information and three years' filed accounts for the property management. Delays are usually the result of the time required by to gather this paperwork.

It can take a long time to gather the managing agent's information if it is difficult to contact the agent responsible for managing the property, so the solicitor should get this underway at the earliest opportunity.
