How long does leasehold conveyancing take?

Over 90% of flats in the UK are leasehold. Leasehold houses are less common, but there are still an estimated 1 million such properties across the country. Purchasing a leasehold home will usually take more time than freehold property because there is more to prepare.

Causes of numerous delays can range from incomplete service charge accounts to out-of-date contact information for the freeholder.

Quittance's expert leasehold solicitors look after hundreds of leasehold clients every month, and our proactive approach can mean faster conveyancing.

Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?

Correct, it can take much more time to carry out the conveyancing on leasehold houses or flats when compared to conveyancing on a freehold house.

The buyer's conveyancer will need to review these documents, including a copy of buildings insurance for the common parts of the property. The time it takes your lawyer to source this information is usually the cause of these delays.

Your solicitor should get this underway even before you have found a buyer, as these details could take several weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the landlord or managing agent or they are slow to respond.
