Having conveyancing lawyers involved at the point of listing a property is an inevitable outcome of Parts B and C of the National Trading Standards material information requirements – it’s a change in the law as a result of the government’s ‘Levelling Up the UK’ white paper.
The drive behind this change in the law is the opportunity to make property transactions easier and less stressful for property sellers and buyers.
When sellers’ lawyers are involved right at the beginning of a property sale, they have the time to draft the contract pack and move the transaction ahead of the game. Simply having information upfront, before the offer hits the table, means lawyers and estate agents can reduce the time spent reviewing and addressing information between the point of the sale agreed and exchange of contracts. This in turn increases the certainty of a transaction and in certain cases could also reduce completion times.
