How long does the conveyancing on a leasehold property take
Almost every flat in the UK is leasehold. Purchasing leasehold property can take weeks more to complete than freehold property as there is greater complexity.
Delays in leasehold transactions could include anything from an unreachable freeholder to incomplete managing agent information.
Leasehold specialists complete the legal work for 100's of leasehold purchases each month. With specialist expertise there should be far fewer delays.
Does the conveyancing for selling leasehold take longer?
Yes, it can take considerably longer to complete the legal work on leasehold properties when compared to conveyancing on a freehold house.
The buyer's solicitor must review several leasehold-related documents. These could include details of any breaches by other leaseholders and a copy of the freehold property's buildings insurance. The time needed by the solicitor to source this information is commonly the source of delays.
It can take weeks to collect this paperwork if it is difficult to contact the managing agent, so your solicitor should start this process even before you have found a buyer.
