Ask an Property Solicitor. Get an Answer ASAP.
Thank you for your question
My name is Clare
I shall do my best to help you but I need some further information first
Are you purchasing or selling the property?
Are you aware that the site charges more for a phone call?
If you are selling then your costs will cover the preparation of the Contract and the various forms that support it -
Fittings and contents form
Property information form
Copies of documents referenced in the property information form
Energy Performance Certificate
Leasehold / shared freehold documents
Management Information Pack
Please ask if you need further details
Those are the documents that have to be prepared if there is a sale - even if you deal with it yourself.
If a solicitor is acting for you they will also have to
complete identity checks on you;
obtain up to date Office Copy Entries proving your ownership.
Investigate the title
Deal with the Exchange of contracts and hold the deposit
Settle any mortgage
Supply you with a completion statement
Usually the buyer and the seller each pay their own costs
