How long does the conveyancing on a leasehold property take

The vast majority of flats are leasehold. The conveyancing for leasehold property can take weeks more to complete than a freehold property as the freeholder and/or managing agent are also involved.

Examples of delays might include anything from slow delivery of managing agents' documents to out-of-date contact information for the freeholder.

Our expert leasehold conveyancing team complete the legal work for 100's of leasehold purchases each month, and our proactive approach means delays are less likely to occur.
