Selling a property in St Asaph

For the sale of a home in St Asaph, your conveyancing solicitor will prepare vital paperwork, including ID forms and the sale contract.

Their duties entail responding to the buyer's solicitor's enquiries, handling obstacles like a flying freehold and redeeming the mortgage.

In order to assure a smooth transfer of ownership, your conveyancing solicitor will also work with all parties, such as agents, lenders and landlords.

Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?

Yes. The legal work for selling a leasehold house or flat can take much longer.

The solicitor acting for the buyer must review this leasehold-related paperwork, such as three years' filed accounts for the property management. Delays are usually caused by the time it takes your solicitor to gather this paperwork.

Your conveyancing solicitor should get this underway as soon as possible, as these details can take weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or landlord or they are slow to respond.
