How long does the conveyancing on a leasehold property take

Almost every flat in the UK is leasehold. Purchasing leasehold property can take weeks more to complete than freehold property as there is greater complexity.

Delays in leasehold transactions could include anything from an unreachable freeholder to incomplete managing agent information.

Quittance's team of leasehold specialists 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, it can take much more time to complete the legal work on a leasehold house or flat,compared to the sale of a freehold property.

The buyer's conveyancer must review several leasehold-related documents, such as an up-to-date statement of service charges. Delays are usually the result of the time needed by your lawyer to get these documents together.

Your solicitor should commence this as soon as possible, because this paperwork could take several weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or they are slow to respond.
