Selling a property in Tameside

When you're looking to sell a home in Tameside, you can expect the solicitor to first assemble all essential documents, including the sale contract and ID forms.

The role of a conveyancer acting for the seller includes dealing with complications like a flying freehold and responding to enquiries from the buyer's solicitor.

Your lawyer will also coordinate with both sides, like estate agents, landlords and lenders, ensuring that the transfer of ownership completes as soon as possible.

Does the conveyancing for selling leasehold take longer?

Yes, it can take much more time to carry out the legal work to sell leasehold houses or flats, compared to freehold conveyancing.

The solicitor acting for the buyer will need to review several leasehold-related documents, such as a current statement of service charges. Typically, delays are due to the time required by your solicitor to source this information.

It can take weeks to collect these details if it is difficult to contact the agent responsible for managing the property, so your conveyancing solicitor should get this underway even before you have found a buyer.
