How long does leasehold conveyancing take?

Almost all flats are leasehold. There are also an estimated 1 million leasehold houses throughout the country. Purchasing a leasehold flat can take weeks longer than a freehold home as the freeholder and/or managing agent are also involved.

Delays in leasehold transactions could include anything from an unresponsive landlord to slow delivery of managing agents' documents.

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.

What do I need to know if selling a leasehold property in Farnborough?

The legal work for a leasehold flat is quite a lot more difficult than for a freehold house.

The complex nature of leasehold property means that conveyancing solicitors in Farnborough must undertake additional work, which could include sourcing an up-to-date service charge statement, through to a copy of the insurance policy schedule.

To help mitigate the delays involved in selling a leasehold property, It is highly recommended that the seller instruct a conveyancer as soon as the decision is made to sell.
