What do New Milton conveyancing solicitors do?

During a property purchase, your solicitor will address all the legal details of a home purchase.

They will order property searches, raise questions for the seller, review the contract of sale and fulfil post-completion formalities, including paying Stamp Duty Land Tax and registering the property ownership with the Land Registry.

New Milton conveyancing solicitors may carry out flood risk searches.

Are you purchasing a home with a mortgage?

When buying with a mortgage, it is standard for your solicitor to also act for the bank or building society.

If your lawyer is not on your chosen lender's panel, your purchase could take weeks longer and also cost more.

Our chosen panel solicitors have established relationships with the majority of building societies, banks and lenders, including major banks like Co-operative Bank, to smaller lenders like Cambridge Building Society and Keystone Finance - helping to ensure your transaction completes faster.

Selling property in New Milton

When selling homes in New Milton, the solicitor will assemble all essential documents - like property information forms and the title deeds. The lawyer's duties entail resolving any potential issues and responding to enquiries from the buyer's solicitor.

By taking action to coordinate with all parties, like estate agents, landlords and lenders, your conveyancing solicitor will help make sure your sale of your property completes as soon as possible.

Does the conveyancing for selling leasehold take longer?

Yes, it can take considerably longer to carry out the conveyancing on leasehold properties when compared to conveyancing on a freehold house.

The buyer's conveyancer will need to review several leasehold-related documents, such as an up-to-date statement of service charges. The time required by the seller's conveyancer to source this information is usually the cause of these delays.

Your lawyer should get this underway even before you have found a buyer, because these details can take weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the landlord or managing agent.
