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.
Our specialist leasehold solicitor team handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month. With specialist expertise there should be far fewer delays.
Does sale conveyancing take longer for leasehold?
Correct, it can take considerably longer to complete the legal work on leasehold properties,compared to the sale of a freehold property.
The buyer's conveyancer must review these documents, like a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance and an up-to-date statement of service charges. Delays are usually caused by the time needed by to source this information.
The solicitor should start this process as soon as possible, as this paperwork can take a long time to gather if the managing agent is slow or difficult to contact.
