What do I need to know if selling a leasehold property in Mirfield?

The conveyancing process for a leasehold flat (houses are rarely leasehold) is much more technical than for a freehold house.

To help mitigate the delays involved in selling a leasehold property, It is recommended that the vendor contact a Mirfield conveyancing solicitor as soon as possible.
