How long does the conveyancing on a leasehold property take
Almost all flats are leasehold. Leasehold houses are less common, but there are still an estimated 1 million such properties across the country. Buying leasehold property can take weeks longer than a freehold home because leasehold transactions involve more work and more technical complexity exists.
Causes of numerous delays can range from slow delivery of managing agents' documents to an unreachable freeholder.
Specialist leasehold solicitors look after hundreds of leasehold clients every month, and our proactive approach can mean faster conveyancing.
Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?
Yes, compared to freehold conveyancing. The conveyancing for selling a leasehold house or flat usually takes longer.
The solicitor acting for the buyer will need to review this leasehold-related paperwork, including a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance. Delays are usually the result of the time it takes the seller's conveyancer to get these documents together.
The solicitor should start this process before a buyer has even been found, because the managing agent's information can take weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the agent responsible for managing the property or they are slow to respond.

A transfer will also be required if the property is being gifted to a child or relative. The legal process of transferring equity differs from an outright purchase or sale.
