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Examples of delays might include anything from slow delivery of managing agents' documents to out-of-date contact information for the freeholder.
Expert leasehold conveyancers complete the legal work for 100's of leasehold purchases each month, and our proactive approach means delays are less likely to occur.
Is there anything to be aware of if selling a leasehold property in Arnold?
The legal work for a leasehold flat (leasehold houses are uncommon) is quite a lot more protracted than for a more straightforward freehold house.
The complex nature of leasehold property means that conveyancing solicitors in Arnold must undertake additional work, which could include requesting all relevant freeholder information, through to a copy of the lease.
To reduce leasehold-related delays, It is recommended that you instruct a Arnold conveyancing solicitor as soon as an estate agent is chosen.
