Selling a property in Nantwich

When selling a home in Nantwich, your conveyancer will prepare vital paperwork, including the various property information forms and the title deeds. They will address potential issues and reply to the buyer's solicitor's inquiries.

Your solicitor will coordinate with both sides, like agents, lenders and landlords, to help ensure the home move completes as soon as possible.

Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?

Yes. Sale conveyancing for a leasehold home usually takes longer.

The buyer's solicitor will need to review this leasehold-related paperwork. These could include a current statement of service charges and management company information. Typically, delays are due to the time required by the solicitor to source this information.

Your solicitor should start this process as soon as possible, because these details can take weeks to collect if the managing agent is slow or difficult to contact.
