What does a property lawyer do?

A conveyancer or solicitor guides the buyer through the legal aspects of transferring ownership from the seller to the buyer. This means performing due diligence on the property purchase, like applying for searches from local authorities (e.g. Monmouthshire Council), raising questions for the seller's solicitor and registering you as the new owner at HMLR.

Further to the standard checks and searches, Monmouth conveyancing solicitors may also carry out additional checks to ensure properties conform to planning regulations, given the presence of the Wye Valley Area of Outstanding Natural Beauty (AONB).

Are you purchasing a home with a mortgage?

As part of the conveyancing process, your solicitor also has to handle legal due diligence on behalf of the lender. If your solicitor isn't accepted on your mortgage provider's panel, it could take weeks longer to complete your purchase.

We work with solicitors who can represent the vast majority of building societies, banks and lenders, helping to ensure your transaction completes faster.

Leasehold flats

Almost all flats are leasehold. There are also an estimated 1 million leasehold houses throughout the country. The conveyancing for a leasehold property will usually take more time than a freehold house because there is more to prepare and there is greater complexity.

Delays in leasehold transactions could include anything from an absent freeholder to incomplete managing agent information.

Specialist leasehold solicitors handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month. Our proactive approach means fewer obstacles.

Selling a house or flat in Monmouth

When selling a Monmouth property, your lawyer will assemble all essential documents, including ID forms and the title deeds. The duties of a seller's solicitor includes resolving any potential issues and responding to enquiries from the buyer's solicitor.

Your solicitor will also coordinate with all parties, including agents, lenders and landlords, to make sure your move is completed without incident.

Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?

Yes. Sale conveyancing for leasehold properties usually takes longer.

The solicitor acting for the buyer will expect to see this leasehold-related paperwork, such as an up-to-date statement of service charges. The time required by to source this information is the common cause of such delays.

Your solicitor should get this underway at the earliest opportunity, as this information can take a long time to gather if it is difficult to contact the managing agent.

How much are conveyancing fees in Monmouth?

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

Solicitors' fees

Your solicitor's quote will set out the legal fees (inc. VAT) that you pay when the property transaction is complete. These fees are what your lawyer charges you for the work they carry out on your behalf.

Disbursements

A disbursement is an expense your lawyer will pay on your behalf which will be added to your bill when you complete. Third-party disbursements include Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT), HM Land Registry fees and property searches.

Check what's included in your conveyancing quote

Double-check for additional fees or charges, when comparing quotes. Some solicitors' quotes may include additional charges in their terms and conditions, resulting in a final bill that is higher than the original quote.
