Selling property in Malvern

When selling property in Malvern, your solicitor will prepare the necessary documentation, including the contract of sale and ID forms, and help you fill out these forms.

Your solicitor will coordinate with both sides, including estate agents, landlords and lenders, confirming that the sale of your property completes without delay.

Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?

Yes, it can take much more time to carry out the legal work to sell leasehold properties when compared to conveyancing on a freehold house.

The solicitor acting for the buyer must review these documents, like management company information and a current statement of service charges. Delays are usually caused by the time it takes to source this information.

It can take a long time to gather this information if the managing agent is slow or difficult to contact, so the seller's solicitor ought to start this process even before a sale has been agreed.
