How long does conveyancing take when buying a leasehold flat in Frimley?

Over 90% of flats in the UK are leasehold. There are also an estimated 1 million leasehold houses throughout the country. Purchasing a leasehold home typically takes longer than a freehold house as the landlord or managing agent are involved.

Examples of delays might include anything from incomplete managing agent information to out-of-date contact information for the freeholder.

Our specialist leasehold solicitor team complete the legal work for 100's of leasehold purchases each month. Our proactive approach means fewer obstacles.

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.
