Selling property in Ulverston

For the sale of a property in Ulverston, your solicitor will prepare the necessary documentation, such as the various property information forms and the sale contract.

The solicitor will respond to inquiries from the buyer's solicitor, address potential issues and handle the mortgage redemption. Your lawyer will coordinate with all parties, like estate agents and banks or building societies, confirming that the move completes without delay.

Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?

Yes, that's correct, it can take considerably longer to carry out the conveyancing on a leasehold house or flat, compared to the sale of a freehold property.

The buyer's conveyancer will want to see these documents, like management company information and a current statement of service charges. The time needed by to source this information is usually the cause of these delays.

Your lawyer should start this process as soon as possible, because the managing agent's information can take weeks to collect if the agent responsible for managing the property is slow or difficult to contact.
