How long does the conveyancing on a leasehold property take

Almost all flats are leasehold. Leasehold houses are less common, but there are still an estimated 1 million such properties across the country. The legal work for a leasehold flat can take weeks more to complete than a freehold house as there is greater complexity.

Examples of delays might include anything from missing leasehold documents to an unreachable freeholder.

Quittance's team of leasehold specialists handle hundreds of leasehold transactions a month. Our proactive approach means fewer obstacles.

Does sale conveyancing take longer for leasehold?

Yes, that's correct, it can take considerably longer to carry out the legal work to sell a leasehold house or flat, compared to freehold conveyancing.

The solicitor acting for the buyer will need to review this leasehold-related paperwork. These could include details of any breaches by other leaseholders and a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property. Delays are usually the result of the time needed by to source this information.

It could take several weeks to collect this information if the agent responsible for managing the property is slow or difficult to contact, so your lawyer ought to start this process even before a sale has been agreed.
