What does an Urmston property lawyer do?

Your lawyer plays a pivotal role in a property purchase. The solicitor will order property searches, raise questions for the seller's solicitor, review the contract of sale, and fulfil post-completion formalities, including paying Stamp Duty and registering the property ownership with the Land Registry.

Further to the standard checks and searches, Urmston conveyancing solicitors could also undertake searches for historic industrial activity and land contamination.

Are you buying a home with a mortgage?

As part of the process of buying a house, your solicitor also has to handle legal due diligence on behalf of your bank or building society. If your lawyer is not on your bank or building society's panel, your purchase could take weeks longer.

Our chosen panel lawyers have established relationships with the majority of building societies, banks and lenders, from major banks like Metro Bank to smaller, specialist lenders including Bluestone Mortgages - helping to ensure your transaction completes faster.
