What does a conveyancing solicitor do?

A conveyancer plays an essential role during a property purchase, and leads you through the legal side of a home purchase. Your lawyer will raise enquires of the seller, order searches, review the lease (if applicable) and ensure that post-purchase requirements, including registering the property ownership with the Land Registry, are completed.

Putney conveyancing solicitors may undertake checks for leasehold complexities, including short and defective leases.

Are you purchasing a property with a mortgage?

When you buy a house, your solicitor must also handle some legal work for the lender.

If your lawyer isn't accepted on your bank's panel, it may take many weeks longer to complete the purchase.

We work with conveyancers who can represent the vast majority of banks and specialist lenders, ensuring your transaction will complete without delay.

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

The conveyancing process for a leasehold flat is much more complicated than for a more straightforward freehold house.

To help mitigate the delays involved in selling a leasehold house or flat, It is highly recommended that the seller instruct a property lawyer as soon as possible.
