How long does conveyancing take when buying a leasehold flat in Clacton On Sea?

Almost all flats are leasehold. The legal work for a leasehold home can take weeks longer than a freehold property as there is more work involved and the freeholder and/or managing agent are also involved.

Delays in leasehold transactions could include anything from out-of-date contact information for the freeholder to missing leasehold documents.

Our expert leasehold conveyancing team handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month, and our proactive approach can mean faster conveyancing.

Could the sale of a leasehold property be delayed?

Correct, it can take much more time to carry out the conveyancing on a leasehold property when compared to conveyancing on a freehold house.

The buyer's conveyancer will want to see several leasehold-related documents, including a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property. The time it takes your solicitor to source this information is usually the cause of these delays.

It can take weeks to collect the managing agent's information if the managing agent is slow or difficult to contact, so your solicitor should get this underway at the earliest opportunity.
