Selling a house or flat in Neath

At the start of the property selling process in Neath, your lawyer will assemble all essential documents, including ID forms and the draft contract.

The role of a conveyancer acting for the seller includes responding to the buyer's solicitor's enquiries and resolving any potential issues.

To ensure the transaction is straightforward, your lawyer will coordinate with both sides, such as agents, managing agents and lenders.

Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?

Yes. The legal work for selling a leasehold home can be seriously delayed.

The buyer's solicitor will expect to see these documents, such as an up-to-date statement of service charges. Typically, delays are due to the time it takes to get these documents together.

It can take weeks to collect this information if the landlord or managing agent is slow or difficult to contact, so your solicitor should get this underway even before you have found a buyer.
