How long does leasehold conveyancing take?
Over 90% of flats in the UK are leasehold. Although much less common, there are also around 1 million leasehold houses nationwide. The legal work for a leasehold flat can take weeks longer than a freehold house as there is more to prepare and the landlord or managing agent are involved.
Varied factors, such as an absent freeholder or slow receipt of the managing agent information, can lead to serious delays.
Quittance's expert leasehold solicitors handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month, and our proactive approach means delays are less likely to occur.
Does a leasehold property take longer to sell?
Compared to freehold property, yes. Sale conveyancing for a leasehold property can take much longer.
The buyer's solicitor will need to review several leasehold-related documents, including a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property. Typically, delays are due to the time required by your solicitor to gather this paperwork.
Your conveyancing solicitor should get this underway as soon as possible, as this paperwork could take several weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or landlord or they are slow to respond.
