What does a conveyancing solicitor do?

For a property purchase, your conveyancing solicitor will handle the legal aspects of transferring ownership from the seller to the buyer. This means performing due diligence on the property purchase, like ordering property searches, raising questions about how the seller has used the property and reviewing contracts.

Stalybridge conveyancing solicitors may also carry out searches for historic industrial activity and land contamination.

Leasehold property

The vast majority of flats are leasehold. There are also an estimated 1 million leasehold houses throughout the country. The legal work for a leasehold property typically takes longer than a freehold property as more technical complexity exists.

Varied factors, such as an unresponsive landlord or slow receipt of the managing agent information, can lead to serious delays.

Completely Moved's team of leasehold specialists look after hundreds of leasehold clients every month. With specialist expertise there should be far fewer delays.

Selling a property in Stalybridge

When selling property in Stalybridge, the solicitor will compile key documents, including title deeds and the various property information forms. The conveyancer will resolve any potential issues, advise on enquiries sent by the buyer's conveyancer and handle the mortgage redemption.

The solicitor will also communicate effectively with the other parties, including agents, lenders and landlords, so the sale completes without a hitch.

Does sale conveyancing take longer for leasehold?

Compared to freehold property, yes. Sale conveyancing for a leasehold house or flat typically takes longer.

The buyer's solicitor must review several leasehold-related documents, such as three years' filed accounts for the property management. The time it takes the seller's conveyancer to source this information is the common cause of such delays.

Your solicitor ought to start this process even before you have found a buyer, as these details can take a long time to gather if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or they are slow to respond.
