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

Delays in leasehold transactions could include anything from an unreachable freeholder to slow receipt of the managing agent information.
Our specialist leasehold solicitor team complete the legal work for 100's of leasehold purchases each month, and our proactive approach can mean faster conveyancing.
Does the conveyancing for selling leasehold take longer?
Yes, that's correct, it can take considerably longer to conduct the conveyancing to sell a leasehold home,compared to the sale of a freehold property.
The buyer's solicitor will expect to see this leasehold-related paperwork. These could include three years' filed accounts for the property management and management company information. The time required by the seller's conveyancer to source this information is usually the cause of these delays.
It can take a long time to gather the managing agent's information if it is difficult to contact the agent responsible for managing the property or they are slow to respond, so the seller's solicitor should start this process before a buyer has even been found.
