What will my solicitor do?

A conveyancer or solicitor plays a key role after an offer has been accepted, and helps the buyer with the legal side of transferring ownership from the seller to the buyer.

Your lawyer will order property searches, raise questions for the seller's solicitor, review the lease (if applicable) and take care of tasks after the sale, like paying Stamp Duty Land Tax.

Further to the standard checks and searches, Winsford conveyancing solicitors would also undertake searches to assess flood risk, subsidence and mining-related risks.

Are you funding your home purchase with a mortgage?

If you are planning to buy with a mortgage, your solicitor will confirm that the property is worth the loan that the lender will provide.

If your conveyancer is not on your bank's panel, your purchase could take significantly longer to complete and cost you more in the process.

More than 100 mortgage lenders have approved our chosen partner solicitors. We can help you complete your Winsford transaction without delay.
