What do Marlborough conveyancing solicitors do?

A property lawyer leads you through the legal side of buying a home. They will raise enquires of the seller's solicitor, order property searches, review contracts and fulfil post-completion formalities, such as registering the property ownership with the Land Registry.

Marlborough conveyancing solicitors may also undertake checks associated with military or air rights, as the county is home to military bases and restricted airspace.

Buying a home with a mortgage?

As part of the process of buying a house, your solicitor also has to handle legal due diligence on behalf of the bank.

If your solicitor isn't accepted on your chosen mortgage provider's panel, it may take weeks longer to purchase your property.

We work with solicitors who can represent the vast majority of banks and specialist lenders, helping to facilitate a faster completion for your purchase.

Selling a house or flat in Marlborough

When selling a Marlborough home, your solicitor will assemble all essential documents, e.g. the title deeds and assorted property information forms, and help you fill out this paperwork.

The solicitor's duties entail responding to enquiries from the buyer's solicitor, resolving any potential issues and taking charge of the mortgage redemption.

Your solicitor will also communicate effectively with all parties, including agents, lenders and landlords, so the sale of your property completes quickly.

Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?

Yes, it can take much longer to complete the legal work on leasehold houses or flats when compared to conveyancing on a freehold house.

The buyer's solicitor will expect to see several leasehold-related documents. These could include an up-to-date statement of service charges and management company information. The time it takes the solicitor to gather this paperwork is commonly the source of delays.

The seller's solicitor should commence this before a buyer has even been found, because these details can take a long time to gather if the landlord or managing agent is slow or difficult to contact.

Conveyancing costs in Marlborough: What to expect

What is and is not included in a quote isn't always clear at first glance.

Solicitors' fees

These fees are what your solicitor or conveyancer charges you for the tasks they complete during your transaction. Your conveyancing solicitor's quote will detail the fees for the legal work, including VAT, that you pay when the property transaction is complete.

Disbursements

Your conveyancing quote should also itemise required third-party costs, or disbursements, such as Stamp Duty and Land Registry fees.

Check the terms and conditions

Watch out for undisclosed fees not included in your original quote, when you compare conveyancing quotes. Some solicitors' quotes list extra charges in the small print, resulting in a higher-than-expected final bill.
