Selling a house or flat in Pontyclun

The sale of a house or flat in Pontyclun will require the solicitor to first arrange all the necessary documentation, including the title deeds and the TA6 and TA10 property information forms, and help you fill out these forms.

The conveyancer's duties entail addressing snags like an absent freeholder and answering enquiries from the buyer's solicitor.

Your solicitor will also coordinate with both sides, including estate agents, landlords and lenders, ensuring that the sale completes quickly.

Does a leasehold property take longer to sell?

Yes. The legal work for selling leasehold properties can take much longer.

The buyer's conveyancer will want to see this leasehold-related paperwork, such as an up-to-date statement of service charges. The time it takes to source this information is usually the cause of these delays.

It can take a long time to gather this paperwork if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or they are slow to respond, so your lawyer should get this underway even before you have found a buyer.

How much should I budget for conveyancing in Pontyclun?

Legal fees

Your conveyancing solicitor's quote should clearly detail the legal fees, including VAT, that you'll pay when your transaction completes. These fees are what your conveyancing solicitor charges you for the legal work that they complete during your property transaction.

Conveyancing disbursements

The quote will include necessary third-party costs, called disbursements, such as Stamp Duty Land Tax (SDLT), HM Land Registry fees and property searches.

Check the quote for hidden costs

Some firms set out additional charges in their terms and conditions, resulting in a final bill that is higher than the original quote. If you are comparing quotes, double-check for additional fees or charges.
