What will my Porth solicitor do?

Your property lawyer plays an essential role during a property purchase.

The solicitor will order searches, raise questions for the seller's solicitor, review the contract of sale, and take care of tasks after the sale, like paying LTT.

In addition to standard searches, Porth conveyancing solicitors may carry out searches for coal mining activity.

Purchasing a property with a mortgage?

Whether you are purchasing an investment property or buying a leasehold flat, your solicitor must also complete legal work for the bank or building society. If your conveyancer isn't accepted on your lender's panel, it may take many weeks longer to complete the purchase.

We work with solicitors who can represent the vast majority of banks and specialist lenders, including major banks like Co-operative Bank, to smaller lenders like Yorkshire Building Society and Keystone Finance - helping to ensure your transaction completes faster.

Selling a house or flat in Porth

When selling a Porth house or flat, your conveyancer will arrange all the necessary documentation, such as the contract of sale and the TA6 and TA10 property information forms, and help you fill out this paperwork. A seller's solicitor's duties include addressing snags like missing building regulations, responding to the buyer's solicitor's questions and redeeming the mortgage.

The solicitor will liaise with key parties, like estate agents and banks or building societies, to make sure your sale of your property is completed successfully.

Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?

Yes, compared to freehold conveyancing. Sale conveyancing for a leasehold house or flat can take much longer.

The buyer's conveyancer will expect to see these documents, such as an up-to-date statement of service charges. Typically, delays are due to the time it takes to source this information.

It can take a long time to gather the managing agent's information if the landlord or managing agent is slow or difficult to contact, so the solicitor should get this underway as soon as possible.
