What does a Penarth conveyancing solicitor do?

The conveyancer plays a key role after an offer has been accepted.

Your lawyer will order searches, raise questions for the seller's solicitor, review the lease (if applicable) and take care of tasks after the sale, including paying Land Transaction Tax.

Further to the standard checks and searches, Penarth conveyancing solicitors could also undertake coal mining searches due to the history of the South Wales coalfield.

Will you be taking out a mortgage?

If you are getting a mortgage, your solicitor will also need to act for the bank arranging your mortgage.

Your transaction could take significantly longer to complete and incur more costs if your property lawyer is not on your chosen mortgage provider's panel.

More than 100 banks and specialist lenders have approved our chosen panel lawyers. We can help you complete your Penarth transaction smoothly.

New Build Conveyancing

The legal work for purchasing a new build property in Penarth is more complicated than buying an existing property.

Buying a leasehold property

Almost every flat in the UK is leasehold. Buying a leasehold property can take weeks longer than a freehold house because leasehold transactions involve more work and there is greater complexity.

Examples of delays might include anything from incomplete service charge accounts to an unreachable freeholder.

Expert leasehold solicitors handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month. Our proactive approach means fewer obstacles.
