When should I instruct a conveyancer or property solicitor when selling a house in Porthleven?
Basically, quicker you hire a conveyancer the better. Hiring a conveyancing solicitor to manage your sale conveyancing early gives your conveyancer more time to plan the transaction. They’ll have more time to write up all the important documentation before any purchaser has registered an interest. You’ll be prepared when a buyer is found, this will accelerate the process.
Property Searches in Porthleven
If you are purchasing a home in Porthleven, your conveyancing solicitor will probably advise that you carry out property searches. Property searches are enquiries made to the local authority (Porthleven council) that might discover important information about a property or land you’re looking to buy. Property searches check multiple aspects that might negatively impact the houses value. Search results will reveal the quality of the ground, check for flooding risk, common drains, access rights and whether planning permission can be approved for further development. The property searches should be completed and approved before the exchange contracts. If you’re remortgaging, lenders don’t normally require searches made.
