What does a conveyancing solicitor do?

A conveyancing solicitor will handle the legal aspects of the transaction. This means carrying out comprehensive due diligence on the property, such as ordering searches from authorities such as Leeds Council, raising questions about how the seller has used the property, handling the transfer of funds and registering your ownership of the property at HMLR.

In addition to standard searches, Morley conveyancing solicitors could also undertake searches for issues related to historic mining and industrial activity.

Buying with a mortgage?

During the house buying process, your solicitor also has to take care of legal matters for the lender.

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

Over 100 building societies, banks and lenders have approved our chosen panel lawyers, so we can help you complete your Morley transaction without delay.

Leasehold property

Almost every flat in the UK is leasehold. Purchasing a leasehold home can take weeks longer than freehold property because leasehold transactions involve more work.

Delays in leasehold transactions could include anything from out-of-date contact information for the freeholder to incomplete service charge accounts.

Expert leasehold solicitors handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month, and our proactive approach means delays are less likely to occur.

Selling property in Morley

At the start of the property selling process in Morley, your solicitor will prepare the necessary documentation, including ID forms and the sale contract.

The conveyancer will respond to inquiries from the buyer's solicitor and address potential issues. Your solicitor will also coordinate with all stakeholders, like estate agents, landlords and lenders, to confirm that the property sale completes quickly.

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

Conveyancing for a leasehold flat or house is quite a lot more complicated than for a freehold property.

The complex nature of leasehold property means that conveyancing solicitors in Morley must undertake extra work, and this could include sourcing an up-to-date service charge statement, through to a copy of the insurance policy.

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