What does an Ossett conveyancing solicitor do?

During the home purchase, the lawyer will take care of the technical side of the transaction. The solicitor will carry out comprehensive due diligence, such as raising questions about how the seller has used the property, arranging searches from entities including Wakefield Council, handling the transfer of funds and completing the registration of your ownership with HM Land Registry.

Ossett conveyancing solicitors may undertake searches for issues related to historic mining and industrial activity.

Purchasing with a mortgage?

If you are planning to buy with a mortgage, your solicitor will verify that the property is worth the loan that the lender will provide.

Your transaction could take weeks longer and cost you more in the process if your conveyancing solicitor is not on your chosen mortgage provider's panel.

Our chosen panel solicitors have established relationships with the majority of banks and building societies, from larger lenders like NatWest to Bradford and Bingley, helping to facilitate a faster completion for your purchase.

Leasehold flats

Almost every flat in the UK is leasehold. There are also an estimated 1 million leasehold houses throughout the country. Buying a leasehold home can take weeks more to complete than a freehold property because there is more to prepare and the freeholder and/or managing agent are also involved.

Varied factors, such as an absent freeholder or incomplete managing agent information, can lead to serious delays.

Completely Moved's expert leasehold solicitors handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month, and our proactive approach means delays are less likely to occur.

Selling a property in Ossett

When you're looking to sell a house or flat in Ossett, you can expect your conveyancer to first assemble all essential documents, including the title deeds and the TA6 and TA10 property information forms, and help you fill out this paperwork.

The conveyancer's role involves answering enquiries from the buyer's solicitor and dealing with complications like an unofficial roof terrace.

The solicitor will also communicate effectively with all parties, including agents, lenders and landlords, confirming that the sale completes quickly.

Is there anything to be aware of if selling a leasehold property in Ossett?

The conveyancing process for a leasehold flat (leasehold houses are uncommon) is significantly more specialised than for a more straightforward freehold house.

Leasehold complexity involves additional legal work on the part of conveyancing solicitors in Ossett, such as sourcing the latest service charge and ground rent statement, through to details of planned major works.

To help mitigate the delays involved in selling a leasehold property, It is strongly advised that the vendor contact a solicitor as soon as an estate agent is chosen.
