What will my Liphook solicitor do?

Your property lawyer oversees all post-offer aspects of purchasing a house or flat.

They will raise questions for the seller's solicitor, order searches, review the lease (if applicable) and complete any post-sale actions, such as paying Stamp Duty Land Tax.

Liphook conveyancing solicitors may also undertake flood risk searches.

Are you taking out a mortgage?

When you buy a property with a mortgage, the lender will need to confirm that the property's value is enough to cover the amount of the mortgage.

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

More than 100 building societies, banks and lenders have approved our chosen partner solicitors. We can help you complete your Liphook transaction without delay.

Selling a house or flat in Liphook

When selling homes in Liphook, your conveyancing solicitor will assemble all essential documents, including property information forms and title deeds.

The lawyer will sort out potential snags, respond to inquiries from the buyer's solicitor and handle the mortgage redemption.

In order to facilitate a faster completion, the solicitor will work with all parties, such as agents, managing agents and lenders.

Does the conveyancing for selling leasehold take longer?

Compared to freehold property, yes. The conveyancing for selling leasehold houses or flats can take much longer.

The buyer's solicitor will need to review these documents, including a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property. Delays are usually the result of the time required by your solicitor to source this information.

It could take several weeks to collect the managing agent's information if it is difficult to contact the managing agent, so the solicitor should get this underway at the earliest opportunity.
