How long does conveyancing take when buying a leasehold flat in Abbots Langley?
The vast majority of flats are leasehold. Purchasing a leasehold home will usually take more time than a freehold house as there is greater complexity.
Examples of delays might include anything from incomplete service charge accounts to absent freeholders.
Quittance's expert leasehold solicitors complete the legal work for 100's of leasehold purchases each month. With specialist expertise there should be far fewer delays.
Does a leasehold property take longer to sell?
Yes. Sale conveyancing for leasehold houses or flats can result in long delays.
The buyer's solicitor will want to see several leasehold-related documents, like a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance and a current statement of service charges. The time required by your lawyer to gather this paperwork is commonly the source of delays.
It can take a long time to gather this information if it is difficult to contact the managing agent, so the seller's solicitor should start this process before a buyer has even been found.
