What does a Woodley conveyancing solicitor do?

A conveyancer plays an essential role during a property purchase, and leads you through the legal side of buying a home. This means performing due diligence on the property purchase, like arranging property searches, raising enquires, ensuring necessary funds are correctly transferred and HM Land Registry paperwork.

Further to the standard checks and searches, Woodley conveyancing solicitors may also carry out high value properties and issues related to green belt land.

Are you funding your home purchase with a mortgage?

As part of the conveyancing process, your solicitor also has to handle legal due diligence on behalf of your bank or building society.

If your property lawyer isn't accepted on your bank's panel, it could take weeks longer to buy your house.

More than 100 banks and specialist lenders have approved our chosen partner solicitors. We can help you complete your Woodley transaction without delay.

Selling a house or flat in Woodley

At the start of the property selling process in Woodley, your conveyancing solicitor will prepare vital paperwork, including the title deeds and the TA6 and TA10 property information forms, and will help you answer these forms.

Their duties entail answering enquiries from the buyer's solicitor and addressing snags like lack of consent for alterations.

The solicitor will work with all parties, including agents, managing agents and lenders, to confirm that the property sale is completed without incident.

Is there anything to be aware of if selling a leasehold property in Woodley?

Conveyancing for a leasehold property is quite a lot more time-consuming in comparison with a freehold house.

The complex nature of leasehold property means that conveyancing solicitors in Woodley must carry out extra work. This can involve collating an up-to-date service charge statement, through to ascertaining if a license to assign is required.

To help mitigate the delays involved in selling a leasehold property, It is recommended that the seller instruct a property lawyer as soon as the decision is made to sell.
