How long does conveyancing take when buying a leasehold flat in Codsall?
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Delays in leasehold transactions could include anything from out-of-date contact information for the freeholder to missing leasehold documents.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.
Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?
Compared to freehold property, yes. The conveyancing for selling leasehold houses or flats usually takes longer.
The solicitor acting for the buyer will need to review several leasehold-related documents, including a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance. Delays are usually caused by the time it takes the seller's conveyancer to get these documents together.
Your solicitor ought to start this process even before a sale has been agreed, because this information can take weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or landlord or they are slow to respond.
