Will I need property searches when buying a property in Enfield?

How long does leasehold conveyancing take?
Almost all flats are leasehold. The conveyancing for a leasehold flat can take weeks longer than a freehold home as there are more parties involved.
Varied factors, such as absent freeholders or slow delivery of managing agents' documents, can lead to serious delays.
Quittance's expert leasehold solicitors look after hundreds of leasehold clients every month. With specialist expertise there should be far fewer delays.
Does it take longer to sell a leasehold property?
Yes. The legal work for selling a leasehold property usually takes longer.
The buyer's conveyancer must 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. The time needed by your lawyer to source this information is usually the cause of these delays.
The seller's solicitor should get this underway as soon as possible, because this information can take weeks to collect if it is difficult to contact the landlord or managing agent.
