What will my solicitor do?

A property lawyer steers the buyer through the legal aspects of buying a property.

Your solicitor will order searches, raise questions for the seller's solicitor, review the lease (if applicable) and take care of tasks after the sale, such as HMLR registration and paying Stamp Duty Land Tax.

Leamington Spa conveyancing solicitors could also undertake mining searches due to historical coal and mineral extraction.

Purchasing with a mortgage?

During the process of buying a house, your solicitor also has to take care of legal matters for the bank.

Your transaction could take weeks longer if your conveyancing solicitor is not on your lender's panel.

Our chosen panel solicitors have established relationships with the majority of lenders, from major banks like Santander to smaller, specialist lenders including Aldermore Bank - so you can complete your purchase without delay.
