Does the conveyancing for selling leasehold take longer?

Yes, compared to freehold conveyancing. The legal work for selling a leasehold house or flat typically takes longer.

The buyer's conveyancer must review this leasehold-related paperwork, like a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property and details of any breaches by other leaseholders. Delays are usually the result of the time it takes your lawyer to get these documents together.

The seller's solicitor should commence this before a buyer has even been found, because this paperwork can take weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the managing agent or landlord or they are slow to respond.

I want to transfer equity in my Deal home - how does this work?

A 'transfer of equity' will be required if the ownership structure of the Deal property needs to be changed, but at least one of the current owners will remain on the title, or if the property is being gifted to a child or relative. The legal process of transferring equity differs from an outright purchase or sale. Your solicitor can carry out the legal process for you for a guaranteed fixed fee. If you will also be remortgaging, this can be completed at the same time as the transfer.
