How long does conveyancing take when buying a leasehold flat in Barry?

The vast majority of flats are leasehold. Purchasing a leasehold flat can take weeks longer than a freehold property because leasehold transactions involve more work.

Causes of numerous delays can range from missing leasehold documents to absent freeholders.

Quittance's expert leasehold solicitors handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a 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 Barry?

Conveyancing for a leasehold flat (leasehold houses are uncommon) is quite a lot more complex than it is for a freehold home.

The complex nature of leasehold property means that conveyancing solicitors in Barry must carry out additional tasks, for example sourcing an up-to-date service charge statement, through to a copy of the insurance policy.

So as to resolve any leasehold-related delays sooner, It is highly recommended that you instruct a property lawyer as soon as possible.
