How long does leasehold conveyancing take?

The vast majority of flats are leasehold. Although much less common, there are also around 1 million leasehold houses nationwide. The legal work for a leasehold home can take weeks longer than a freehold home as leasehold transactions involve more work and the freeholder and/or managing agent are also involved.

Causes of numerous delays can range from slow delivery of managing agents' documents to uncontactable landlords.

Our specialist leasehold solicitor team look after hundreds of leasehold clients every month. Our proactive approach means fewer obstacles.

Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?

Yes. The legal work for selling leasehold houses or flats typically takes longer.

The buyer's solicitor must review several leasehold-related documents, such as a current statement of service charges. Delays are usually caused by the time it takes the seller's conveyancer to gather this paperwork.

It could take several weeks to collect this paperwork if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or landlord, so the solicitor ought to start this process even before a sale has been agreed.
