What do conveyancing solicitors do?

The conveyancer oversees all post-offer aspects of purchasing a house or flat.

The solicitor will carry out comprehensive due diligence, like applying for searches from local authorities (e.g. Brighton & Hove UA), raising enquires of the seller and registering you as the new owner at HMLR.

In addition to standard searches, Saltdean conveyancing solicitors may also carry out flood risk checks and conservation area restrictions.

Purchasing with a mortgage?

When you purchase a property, your solicitor also needs to carry out some legal work for the lender.

Panel approval will mean your solicitor can represent the interests of your chosen lender.

Selling property in Saltdean

As part of the property selling process in Saltdean, your conveyancing solicitor will prepare vital paperwork, including assorted property information forms and the contract of sale.

The role of a conveyancer acting for the seller includes responding to the buyer's solicitor's enquiries, dealing with complications like lack of conservation area consent and redeeming the mortgage.

To ensure the transaction is straightforward, your conveyancing solicitor will communicate effectively with all parties, such as estate agents and banks or building societies.

What do I need to know if selling a leasehold property in Saltdean?

The legal work for a leasehold flat or house is quite a lot more involved than for a more straightforward freehold house.

The complex nature of leasehold property means that conveyancing solicitors in Saltdean must carry out additional legal work, such as sourcing all relevant freeholder information, through to a copy of the insurance policy schedule.

So as to resolve any leasehold-related issues sooner, It is strongly advised that the seller instruct a lawyer as soon as the property is marketed, if not before.
