What does a Sandown property lawyer do?

A conveyancer or solicitor helps the buyer with the legal side of a home purchase. Your solicitor will order property searches, raise enquires of the seller, review the contract of sale, and fulfil post-completion formalities, like paying Stamp Duty.

Further to the standard checks and searches, Sandown conveyancing solicitors may undertake coastal erosion and sea defence checks.

Are you taking out a mortgage?

During the process of buying a house, your solicitor also has to take care of legal matters for the lender.

Selling a property in Sandown

When selling a Sandown house or flat, your solicitor will prepare vital paperwork, including ID forms and the sale contract.

The duties of a seller's solicitor includes overcoming hurdles such as lack of conservation area consent, responding to enquiries from the buyer's solicitor and handling the mortgage redemption.

In order to facilitate a faster completion, your conveyancing solicitor will coordinate with all parties, such as estate agents, landlords and lenders.

Does sale conveyancing take longer for leasehold?

Compared to freehold property, yes. The conveyancing for selling leasehold houses or flats can be seriously delayed.

The solicitor acting for the buyer must review these documents, including a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance. The time needed by the seller's conveyancer to get these documents together is commonly the source of delays.

Your lawyer should start this process even before a sale has been agreed, as this paperwork can take weeks to collect if the managing agent is slow or difficult to contact.
