What does a Wycombe conveyancing solicitor do?

A solicitor plays a pivotal role in a property purchase.

They will raise questions for the seller's solicitor, order property searches, review the contract of sale and fulfil post-completion formalities, such as paying Stamp Duty.

In addition to standard searches, Wycombe conveyancing solicitors may also undertake checks related to listed buildings and properties in conservation areas or green belt land.

Purchasing a property with a mortgage?

As part of the process of buying a house, your solicitor also has to handle legal due diligence on behalf of the mortgage lender. If your lawyer isn't accepted on your chosen mortgage provider's panel, it could take weeks longer to buy your house.

We work with solicitors who can represent the vast majority of lenders, including major banks like Lloyds Bank, to smaller lenders like Nottingham Building Society and Lendco, helping to ensure your transaction completes faster.

Selling a property in Wycombe

When selling property in Wycombe, your solicitor will assemble all essential documents, including the contract of sale and the various property information forms, and help you fill out this paperwork.

I am selling a leasehold property in Wymondham - what do I need to know?

The legal work for a leasehold property is quite a lot more time-consuming than for a more straightforward freehold house.

The complexities of leasehold mean conveyancing solicitors in Wymondham will usually undertake additional tasks, for example collating the latest service charge and ground rent statement, through to a copy of the insurance policy schedule.

To reduce leasehold-related delays, It is recommended that the vendor contact a lawyer as soon as the decision is made to sell.
