How long does leasehold conveyancing take in Droylsden?

The vast majority of 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 leasehold property can take weeks more to complete than a freehold home as there are more parties involved.

Examples of delays might include anything from incomplete service charge accounts to an unresponsive landlord.

Quittance's team of leasehold specialists complete the legal work for 100's of leasehold purchases each month. With specialist expertise there should be far fewer delays.

Does a leasehold property take longer to sell?

Yes, it can take considerably longer to carry out the legal work to sell a leasehold property,compared to the sale of a freehold property.

The buyer's conveyancer will want to see this leasehold-related paperwork, including management company information. The time it takes the solicitor to get these documents together is usually the cause of these delays.

It can take weeks to collect this information if it is difficult to contact the landlord or managing agent or they are slow to respond, so the seller's solicitor should get this underway even before you have found a buyer.
