What does a North West London property lawyer do?

A solicitor plays a pivotal role in a purchase, and leads you through the legal side of buying a home. Your lawyer will raise enquires of the seller's solicitor, order property searches, review the contract of sale, and take care of tasks after the sale, including HMLR registration.

North West London conveyancing solicitors may also undertake checks for leasehold issues, such as excessive service charges and ground rents.
