What does a Pershore conveyancing solicitor do?

A solicitor plays an essential role during a property purchase, and guides you through the legal side of buying a property. Your solicitor will order searches, raise enquires of the seller's solicitor, review the contract of sale and handle post-completion tasks, like registering the property ownership with the Land Registry and paying Stamp Duty Land Tax.

Further to the standard checks and searches, Pershore conveyancing solicitors would also undertake flood risk assessments due to river proximity (Severn and Avon).

Purchasing a home with a mortgage?

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

Your transaction could take significantly longer to complete if your solicitor is not on your mortgage provider's panel.

We work with conveyancers who can represent the vast majority of banks and specialist lenders, including major banks like Barclays, to smaller lenders like Leeds Building Society and Atom Bank - facilitating a quicker completion of your transaction.

Selling property in Pershore

When selling a Pershore house or flat, your conveyancer will prepare the necessary documentation - like the sale contract and property information forms, and help you fill out this paperwork. The lawyer's role involves addressing snags like an unofficial roof terrace and answering enquiries from the buyer's solicitor.

In order to assure a smooth transfer of ownership, your solicitor will also communicate effectively with all parties, such as agents, lenders and landlords.

Does the conveyancing for selling leasehold take longer?

Yes, compared to freehold conveyancing. The conveyancing for selling leasehold houses or flats usually takes longer.

The solicitor acting for the buyer will expect to see this leasehold-related paperwork, like management company information and three years' filed accounts for the property management. Delays are usually the result of the time it takes the seller's conveyancer to get these documents together.

The seller's solicitor should commence this as soon as possible, because this information can take weeks to collect if the agent responsible for managing the property is slow or difficult to contact.
