Further to the standard checks and searches, North Walsham conveyancing solicitors may carry out searches to assess flood risk.

We work with lawyers who can represent the vast majority of banks and specialist lenders, from major banks like Santander to smaller, specialist lenders including Landbay - so your conveyancing will complete sooner.

Selling property in North Walsham

The sale of a home in North Walsham will require your conveyancing solicitor to first arrange all the necessary documentation, including the title deeds and ID forms, and help you complete these forms.

They will respond to inquiries from the buyer's solicitor and sort out potential snags.

Your lawyer will also communicate effectively with the other parties, including agents, lenders and landlords, to help ensure the transfer of ownership completes quickly.

Does the conveyancing for selling leasehold take longer?

Compared to freehold property, yes. Sale conveyancing for a leasehold home can take much longer.

The buyer's conveyancer will want to see these documents. These could include an up-to-date statement of service charges and management company information. The time required by the seller's conveyancer to get these documents together is the common cause of such delays.

The seller's solicitor ought to start this process before a buyer has even been found, as these details can take weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the landlord or managing agent.
