Can you explain why leasehold purchase conveyancing in Rossendale costs more?
Rossendale leasehold properties involve far more paperwork than a freehold purchase, and therefore takes more time to examine and advise upon.Conveyancing will involve the lease having to be checked which is usually a lengthy document, queries raised to ensure that the covenants and conditions have been observed. If it is a flat there will be a management company in existence and the accounts of this will need to be checked and enquiries raised to ensure it is operating efficiently and that all monies due have been paid by the Seller to the company and if not ensuring that money is paid up to date or the appropriate undertakings obtained.

We're new to the buying process - had an offer accepted, but the agent has warned us that the vendor will only issue a contract if we instruct their chosen conveyancers as they want a ‘quick sale’. My instinct tells me that we should use a high street solicitor used to conveyancing in Rossendale
It is unlikely the owners are driving this. Should the vendor want ‘a quick sale', turning down a serious purchaser is counter productive. Contact the owners directly and make the point that (a)you are motivated buyers (b)you are excited to move forward, with finances in place © you are chain free (d) you intend to proceed fast (e)however you are going to instruct your preferred Rossendale conveyancing lawyers - rather thanthose that will earn their negotiator at the agency a introducer fee or achieve conveyancing figures demanded by head office.
