What does a conveyancing solicitor do?

For a property purchase, a property lawyer will address all the legal details of buying a home. The solicitor will raise enquires of the seller, order searches, review contracts and take care of tasks after the sale, like registering the property ownership with the Land Registry and paying Stamp Duty Land Tax.

Further to the standard checks and searches, Rossendale conveyancing solicitors may also carry out searches for historic mine works and industrial contamination.

Selling a house or flat in Rossendale

The sale of a Rossendale property will require your conveyancer to first prepare vital paperwork, including the title deeds and the TA6 and TA10 property information forms, and help you fill out these forms.

The lawyer will respond to inquiries from the buyer's solicitor, address potential issues and handle the mortgage redemption.

By taking action to work with all parties, like estate agents and banks or building societies, your lawyer will help make sure your sale completes quickly.

Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?

Yes, that's correct, it can take much more time to conduct the conveyancing to sell a leasehold home, compared to freehold conveyancing.

The buyer's conveyancer will need to review this leasehold-related paperwork. These could include details of any breaches by other leaseholders and management company information. The time needed by the solicitor to source this information is the common cause of such delays.

It can take weeks to collect this information if the agent responsible for managing the property is slow or difficult to contact, so your lawyer ought to start this process as soon as possible.
