Chorley conveyancing on leasehold maisonettes normally involves the purchaser’s solicitor submitting enquiries for the landlord to answer. Although the landlord is not legally bound to address such questions the majority will be content to assist.

The average costs for the paperwork that you are referring to is over three hundred pounds, in some cases it is in excess of £800.
