What does a Rugby conveyancing solicitor do?

For a house or flat purchase, the property lawyer will take care of the technical side of a home purchase. Your lawyer will order property searches, raise enquires of the seller's solicitor, review the contract of sale and take care of tasks after the sale, such as HMLR registration.

Further to the standard checks and searches, Rugby conveyancing solicitors could also undertake mining searches due to historical coal and mineral extraction.

Purchasing a home with a mortgage?

If you are buying a home with a mortgage, your solicitor will investigate the property to verify that the property is worth the loan that your bank or building society will provide.

Your transaction could take significantly longer to complete if your property lawyer is not on your bank's panel.

We work with conveyancers who can represent the vast majority of mortgage lenders, so your conveyancing will complete sooner.

Selling property in Rugby

When you're looking to sell a house or flat in Rugby, you can expect the solicitor to first compile key documents, including the draft contract and assorted property information forms, and help you complete these forms.

The lawyer's duties entail answering the buyer's solicitor's questions and resolving issues like a planning issue.

Your solicitor will also liaise with key parties, like agents, managing agents and lenders, to confirm that the sale is completed without incident.

Does a leasehold property take longer to sell?

Yes, compared to freehold conveyancing. The legal work for selling a leasehold home typically takes longer.

The buyer's solicitor will expect to see these documents, like a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property and an up-to-date statement of service charges. Delays are usually caused by the time needed by to get these documents together.

It could take several weeks to collect this information if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or they are slow to respond, so your lawyer should commence this as soon as possible.
