How long does leasehold conveyancing take in Bridgnorth?

The vast majority of flats are leasehold. Although much less common, there are also around 1 million leasehold houses nationwide. Purchasing a leasehold home will usually take more time than a freehold home because there is more to prepare.

Causes of numerous delays can range from incomplete managing agent information to an unresponsive landlord.

Our specialist leasehold solicitor team handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month. With specialist expertise there should be far fewer delays.

Does a leasehold property take longer to sell?

Yes, it can take considerably longer to carry out the conveyancing on leasehold houses or flats, compared to freehold conveyancing.

The solicitor acting for the buyer will want to see several leasehold-related documents, including management company information. The time required by to get these documents together is usually the cause of these delays.

It can take a long time to gather these details if it is difficult to contact the landlord or managing agent or they are slow to respond, so the seller's solicitor should start this process as soon as possible.
