How long does leasehold conveyancing take in Colwyn Bay?

Almost every flat in the UK is leasehold. There are also an estimated 1 million leasehold houses throughout the country. The conveyancing for leasehold property can take weeks longer than freehold property as leasehold transactions involve more work and more technical complexity exists.

Causes of numerous delays can range from incomplete service charge accounts to absent freeholders.

Quittance's expert leasehold solicitors look after hundreds of leasehold clients every month. With specialist expertise there should be far fewer delays.

Is there anything to be aware of if selling a leasehold property in Colwyn Bay?

The conveyancing process for a leasehold flat (houses are rarely leasehold) is a great deal more complex compared to a freehold house.

The complexities of leasehold mean conveyancing solicitors in Colwyn Bay will need to conduct additional legal work, such as requesting the latest service charge and ground rent statement, through to looking into potential forfeiture proceedings.

To reduce leasehold-related delays, It is highly recommended that you instruct a solicitor as soon as is practicable.
