How long does leasehold conveyancing take in Brigg?

The vast majority of flats are leasehold. The conveyancing for leasehold property can take weeks more to complete than freehold property as the landlord or managing agent are involved.

Delays in leasehold transactions could include anything from absent freeholders to incomplete managing agent information.

Quittance's expert leasehold solicitors complete the legal work for 100's of leasehold purchases each month. With specialist expertise there should be far fewer delays.

Is there anything to be aware of if selling a leasehold property in Brigg?

The conveyancing process for a leasehold flat is much more specialised than it is for a freehold home.

The complex nature of leasehold property means that conveyancing solicitors in Brigg must undertake additional work, which could include requesting an up-to-date service charge statement, through to a copy of the insurance policy schedule.

To reduce leasehold-related delays, It is highly recommended that the seller instruct a conveyancer as soon as is practicable.
