How long does conveyancing take when buying a leasehold flat in Cleethorpes?
The vast majority of flats are leasehold. Leasehold houses are less common, but there are still an estimated 1 million such properties across the country. Purchasing a leasehold property can take weeks longer than a freehold house because there is more to prepare and there is greater complexity.
Causes of numerous delays can range from slow delivery of managing agents' documents to an unreachable freeholder.
Our expert leasehold conveyancing team handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month. With specialist expertise there should be far fewer delays.
Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?
Compared to freehold property, yes. Sale conveyancing for a leasehold house or flat can take much longer.
The buyer's solicitor will want to see several leasehold-related documents, like management company information and a current statement of service charges. The time required by your solicitor to source this information is the common cause of such delays.
The seller's solicitor should get this underway even before a sale has been agreed, as the managing agent's information could take several weeks to collect if the managing agent or landlord is slow or difficult to contact.
