How long does the conveyancing on a leasehold property take
Almost every flat in the UK is leasehold. Leasehold houses are less common, but there are still an estimated 1 million such properties across the country. Purchasing a leasehold flat typically takes longer than freehold property as leasehold transactions involve more work and there is greater complexity.
Delays in leasehold transactions could include anything from an unreachable freeholder to missing leasehold documents.
Specialist leasehold solicitors handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month. With specialist expertise there should be far fewer delays.
Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?
Correct, it can take much more time to carry out the legal work to sell leasehold houses or flats when compared to conveyancing on a freehold house.
The buyer's conveyancer will need to review this leasehold-related paperwork, such as an up-to-date statement of service charges. Delays are usually the result of the time needed by the seller's conveyancer to source this information.
It can take a long time to gather this information if the managing agent is slow or difficult to contact, so your solicitor should commence this before a buyer has even been found.
